We heard the news last night too just like everyone. In-fact we were at an event, when the unpalatable news came filtering in like a terrible avalanche. We immediately discarded the sad news, hoping against all hope that it was the figment of the imaginations of some naysayers. But the news just wouldn't change. At a point we started calling Goldie's phone, but it just kept saying the phone was dead. That got our attention the more. We frantically started calling Goldie's BFF, Denrele but alas!His phone was dead too. Many were calling and sending messages trying to find out the truth. We couldn't answer all because though we knew it had happened, we were asking and praying for a miracle. But the miracle just didn't come. We were even just a few minutes away from the Reddington Hospital, Victoria Island, but we refused to go there because we were refusing to believe the truth.
In our numbness at the news and situation we refused to write anything. We immediately left the event we were attending and went home, straight to bed. Thinking that by the time we wake up, we would be hearing the good news that all of last night was a joke. But it wasn't. Susan Harvey, 31, aka Goldie, the in your face crooner on Kennis Music Label has truly passed on to the great beyond.
Goldie only just came back into the country yesterday, after going to the Grammy Awards, which was also attended by her label boss Mr. Kenny 'Keke' Ogungbe. We heard she only complained of headache, before Denrele her very close friend, rushed her to her hospital, only to be pronounced dead on arrival.
Sad, sad, sad. Adieu! Our friend. May your divine soul RIP! She is survived by her dad, step-mom & siblings. God would give the family and friends the strong heart to bear the loss.
