“It is with heavy heart that I have to inform you all that Goldie passed this night shortly after arriving Lagos from LA. May her soul rest in the eternal peace of the Lord - Admin!!” read the post dated yesterday.
The award winning Harvey had just returned home to Lago, Nigeria from her trip to the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles. According to TMZ she complained of a severe headache and was rushed to a hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Kemmy Ogungbe, head of Harvey's record label Kennis Music, wrote in a statement, "With a deep sense of loss, we announce the shocking death of our darling music star, Goldie Harvey."
Harvey was spotted hanging out at a Grammy pre-event party with fellow singer Ciara. Harvey was not nominated for any awards.
Harvey appeared on Africa’s version of Big Brother last year, stirring up quite a controversy due to her Western mannerisms.
She is survived by her father, step-mother and numerous siblings.
