Hip-hop singer, Susan Harvey, popularly called Goldie, is dead.
 
 
News of the death of the sensational artiste, who was a housemate at the Big Brother Africa in 2012, broke on Thursday night, throwing the Nigerian entertainment world and the larger public into mourning.


Although details of the cause of the reported death were sketchy as at press time, reports indicated that she died on Thursday night at Reddington Hospital, in Victoria Island, Lagos.
 
 
A call was placed through to Reddington Hospital last night but a voice at the Front Desk of the hospital last night said, “Sorry, I can’t confirm that now because our information unit has closed for the day.”
 
 
It was learnt that Goldie died in the presence of a Lagos-based entertainer, Denrele Edun, who was in the hospital with her.
 
When our correspondent tried to reach Edun, his phone was switched off.


However our reporters  arrived at Reddington hospital at exactly 11:47 PM, unfortunately they were not granted access into the hospital premises. Cool FM OAPs Freeze and Dotun who had arrived earlier were also not granted access into the premises.
 
Those identified inside the hospital building include Kennis Music label boss Kenny ‘Keke’ Ogungbe, his younger brother ID Ogungbe, Goldie’s close friend Denrele Edun, former Big Brother winners Uti Nwachukwu, Karen Igho and STV presenter Yvonne ‘Vixen’ Ekwere.
 
At 12:47 AM, the singer’s corpse was loaded into a black Mercedes Benz 4matic SUV with license plate HV266-EkY. The Benz along with four other cars headed to the General Hospital, Ikeja morgue.
 
The body arrived at the General Hospital exactly 01:20 AM and was left in the SUV for 40 minutes while preparations were made. At 02:07, the corpse was dislodged at the Lekan Ogunsola Memorial House of the Ikeja General Hospital.
 
Denrele (who was dressed in a red singlet and jeans), Karen, Vixen along with Kenny and ID Ogungbe were actively involved in making sure the body was deposited at the morgue.
 
No photographs were allowed.
 
The atmosphere was very tense, once in a while Keke would throw in a mild joke to ease the tension. ’It is well, thank you for coming’, Denrele said.
 
Kenny Ogungbe declined to make any official comments. No official statements have been made but a message was passed from Goldie’s official Twitter handle;
 
It is with heavy heart that i have to inform you all that goldie passed this night shortly after arriving Lagos‘. The same message also reflected on her Facebook fan page.
Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey was born in the early 1980s to very educated and successful parents.
The first of four kids, Goldie attended the Green Springs Montessori Primary School and St. John’s College, Palm Groove, in Lagos.
 
Her music career remotely kicked off at the University of Sunderland where she was admitted to study Business Management.
 
Goldie was signed on to Kennis Music in 2010.
 
A few months later, she released her acclaimed debut titled, ‘Gold’.
 
Her hit songs include ‘You Know It’, ‘Jawo Jawo’ and DTMB (Don’t Touch My Body).
Goldie has so far received a total of 10 awards, including Exquisite Lady of the year, Best Female Artiste award and City People Best Female Artiste of the year.
 
She has also been inducted as a Federal Celebrity Special Marshal, alongside other notable Nigerian Celebrities. The Law Students Society of the Obafemi Awolowo University recently issued her an Award for Musical Excellence under the category of Best Female Artiste of the Year. She has also been conferred a United Nations Youth Ambassador for Peace by the Federal Government.
 
Goldie became the final celebrity to exit the BBA7 star game house in 2012 as the 3rd runner up.
