On this day in 2013, Nigeria lost one of its entertainment stars, Susan Oluwabimpe Filani, known to all as “Goldie Harvey”.
She was a singer, performer and reality star who was at the peak of her stardom. Her death on Valentine’s Day, after arriving from the 2013 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles caught fans by surprise: how can someone so full of life die so suddenly? But she was gone, pronounced dead only a few hours after she slumped in her Ikoyi home, the result of an onset of a pulmonary embolism.
It is now six years since she passed away. And there is no doubt that were she alive, she would still be a major character in the ever rising Nigerian entertainment industry. We will never forget. Continue to rest In peace, Goldie.
