goldie we love u genius palace 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. The PUNCH called the 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 toreach Edun, his phone was switched off. But when a call was also put through to another artiste, Essence, she confirmed the incident, even as she wept profusely. Essence is on the same Kenny Music label that produced Goldie’s works. 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 kickedoff 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 ExquisiteLady 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.
