To be honest, the first time i heard of Goldie was when she was unveiled as Nigeria's representative at Big Brother Africa. As i watched her, i couldn't help but be enamoured by the lass. She was what you'd expect from an african woman.
When he left for Nigeria on Wednesday morning, he was full of enthusiasm knowing that he was going to have a late Valentine’s date with his sweetheart, but that was never to be. Upon his arrival in Lagos, he was met by the shocking news of his girl’s untimely death.
On Friday some devastating news broke out of Nigeria: Goldie was dead. It later became clear that she had died of a pulmonary embolism on her way to Reddington Hospital.
Before we begin, here's an Igbo prayer for the dear departed Goldie Harvey:
Na Aha Na Nwa Na Muo Nso. Amen (in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit).
Ka ndi mmuo ozi dulue gi na Paradise;
ka ndie gbulu maka Chineke zute gimgbe
I na-abiawee dulue gi n’obodo nso afu, bu Jerusalem.
May the angels lead you into Paradise, that
Martyrs welcome you as you draw near and
lead you into Jerusalem, the heavenly city.
The recent death of Goldie Harvey is unfortunately turning into a circus of sorts. First of all, when Goldie died, it was updated on her official social media accounts, only for her booking manager to come out and deny that she had died. It took intervention from the Reddington hospital to confirm her death and the cause of it. Then shortly afterwards, Prezzo, who has been alleged by the media to be Goldie's lover, came out and told Churchill that he was going to spend Valentine's day with Goldie, only for a man named Andrew Harvey, who says he is Goldie's HUSBAND did an interview and told off Prezzo for seeking media attention!
During last year's Big Brother Africa show, Goldie and Prezzo developed a close relationship, which ever since has led to media speculation even after they left the Big Brother house. There was even a rumor that Goldie and Prezzo were getting married! Prezzo also allegedly told Churchill that they were to hook up on Valentine's. Anyway, in an interview with Nigerian publication TheNetNG, a man named Andrew Harvey, who claims to be the legally married husband of the now deceased Goldie Harvey, came out to debunk the whole Prezzo-Goldie affair. This is the interview in full:
It is a very hard and trying moment for Kenyan singer Jackson “Prezzo” Makini with the sudden and untimely death of his friend Goldie. But a crestfallen Prezzo took time to pay tribute to his fallen sweetheart.
