Rest In Peace Goldie Harvey… Nigerian Singer Passes On



What a sad way to end the day. We are still in shock about the news reaching us that Nigerian singer Goldie Harvey is dead. Details of her death are still sketchy but media reports say she passed on last night at Reddington Hospital, Victoria Island, Lagos in the arms of her close friend, Denrele.

Goldie had just returned to Nigeria from the U.S where she attended the Grammy Awards with her record label, Kennis Music boss, Kenny Ogungbe. Kenny St. Best, an artiste also under Kennis Music confirmed the news to BellaNaija.

She said “It’s true. I still can’t believe it. I’m still in shock.”

Her death is so sad and sudden and comes as a deep shock to me. I remember meeting her for an interview some months ago and she struck me as a very pleasant lady. Beneath all the glitz of her glamorous career, Goldie is a very sweet and kind lady {still very hard to say “was”}. She is well spoken and the tone of her messages and emails were always so polite. Even when she returned from the Big Brother House and I tried to get some scoop from her experience in the house, she declined in the kindest way possible.

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to get to meet this lovely lady with such a kind heart. Denrele and Goldie were such close friends, I can’t imagine what he must be going through right now. They were supposed to launch their Reality Show ‘Tru Friendship’ in a couple of weeks.

The sad news was posted on her Facebook Page a while ago:

Rest In Peace Susan Oluwabimpe “Goldie” Harvey. You would be deeply missed.

      I didn’t give this girl a chance. Didn’t “accept” her. Didn’t respect her hustle. Got irritated by her. Laughed at her and now I feel bad. Everyone deserves a chance. Everyone deserves respect. We all need one another cos we all have our struggles and fears.

      Our world is flawed.

      Lord teach me.

      She was giving us the chance to know her better, who she really was, how loving a true African lady can be.. though I didn’t follow much on the BBA but the little gist I got was how she “fell naija hand “, she was not representing, the worst Nigerian representative ever, and blah blah blah. Its time we Nigerians sat up to look at our lives and see how much impact we have had on another. RIP Goldie

      Ayo (my namesake :-), you spoke the exact words that were going through my heart when I heard the news yesterday. Suddenly all the snide remarks and harsh judgemenst I had given her seemed soo foolish and stupid. Who are we to judge one another period, talk less of doing it soo harshly. May God forgive us all, and may God grant her eternal peace. As I think back on how she behaved while in BBA, (one of the things I and many others used to yap her), I can’t help but think she was a MUCH better person than any of us that had sooo much crap to say about her, when all she was doing was living her life. Smh. I hope this is a lesson for us all. It shouldn’t take someones’ demise to make us feel embarrassed about our actions and words. Sun re Goldie.

      Goldie. A beautiful one she was indeed. But a legend? I don’t think so. Her death is sad but we should try to remain within the spectrum of truth.

    • Allelaw

      February 15, 2013 at 12:51 pm

      Truth is most Nigerians only comment on “out of point” issues this place is supposed to be where you can learn skills like CPR, yes that may have happened (embolism) but what happened when she was not breathing and probably collapsed. I am so sure no one thought of giving her a cardiac massage prior to taking her to the hospital and she would have survived before advanced life support system arrives. I wanna use this Medium to encourage you all to learn how to resuscitate someone. I bet you Goldie could have survived if she also had people with that kind of knowledge by her. Since we love to change topics on ground here we can use it to learn some critical issues concerning our health.

    February 15, 2013 at 2:16 am

    All of una, wey have never spoken good about this girl, shame and fear go catch una now. It will be RIP, ehya, such a beautiful woman, and co and co. It is so sad that this post will probably the only post ever posted on BN and on other blogs that only good things will be said about her. Just sad indeed, that it will take her dying for people to ever say something good related to news about her. Let’s be careful with the way we just spew out bile and hateful comments. Life is too short and precious, and we don’t know tomorrow. 6 hours ago she was still responding to tweets from fans, and she sounded like a sweet person, who was just never understood or given a break by some sad, hateful people. If you cant say something nice, don’t say anything at all. Life is too short, to be spent simply hating and typing out trash about someone you don’t know, and who may likely read your comments. I hope y’all guilty of this feel a little bad now and will pipe down a bit now, and rethink and stop the bashing of other celebs – Toke and Karen come to mind. peace be unto you.

      Thank you.I thought of how we dehumanize people on blogs and Toke came to mind. Let’s not forget that celebs to are human beings.We are free to criticize people but hitting below the belt and spewing unkind words are not needed.Goldie was bashed every single second and now she is gone. When we want to dehumanize these celebs, please remember they are daughters, sons,sisters, friends, lovers and children of God.

      Hmmm. Very well said Tope…same thing I’ve been thinking about..I don’t just understand why some of our Nigerian people are so damn mean and hateful…some of them should really feel terrible if they have any conscience at all. Not saying they caused her death, but they should learn to watch what they say about other celebs from now on because these folks are Humans!

    • nene

      February 15, 2013 at 8:34 am

      i don’t see how people’s comments affected goldie’s life, uncless she committed suicide. go to websites like just jared, dailymail, perez hilton, etc and see the nasty comments people leave. as much as most commenters in different blogs didn’t like goldie because she was quite “different”, it is only natural to sympathize. has nothing to do with being a hater.

    • Bleed blue

      February 15, 2013 at 9:59 am

      Exactly Nene… you “don’t see” so you will never know…so if in doubt, can we try to opt for positive statements please? And if we must be negative, we can try and be constructive about it as against being destructive.

    • Hadija

      February 15, 2013 at 5:42 pm

      Thank u. we always direct our focus to things that are soooo irrelevant. Are you saying people will never disrespect what you do just because you will die someday? That is so out of the point! U disliked her performance on BBA – that is fine! Her death doesn’t change how many ppl felt about it. So just express ur sympathy and move on cos really, you will live to disregard others again and again and again. It’s human nature.

    • Mimi

      February 15, 2013 at 10:05 am

      in this world you won’t get everyone liking you, but when people die, people sympathize. people might not have liked her or her music, but still, nobody was wishing death upon her. May Her soul rest in peace.

      February 15, 2013 at 2:58 pm

      May God bless you. I just typed almost the same thing on Nairaland, people always ‘killing’ people with their mouths, hearts and computers. You need to read what people say about Tonto dike and the aforementioned. Let this be a lesson. You must not comment on everything to feel important. RIP Goldie.

      February 18, 2013 at 12:17 am

      You said it well, Tope… sad that it is when someone dies, that most people remember to say good things about the dead. If only all the good things said today was said to her before she dies, she may have still be alive. She was so talented and kindhearted.. I really didn’t know much about her, but from what I have seen, this is a young lady trying so hard to make her mark in the world.. Without a support system, life can be awfully hard to move through it alone.. Lets learn to support our own, which does not mean hating strangers or others that are not similar in culture or language to us.. She is a Sun shine, and she will continue to shine for others see..

    So, this is true? How can this be? This is Probably the most unexpected thing to have happened this year between the pope’s resignation and Oscar’s Murder case. Too many questions so little answers, there is something wrong with the world today and sometimes death is the only way we all can be brought to sanity and humility. I’m honestly touched and really sad… This world is definitely not OURS!

    February 15, 2013 at 2:40 am

    Sad to hear this, but we must also face the fact, Goldie wouldn’t not have died if someone was around with enough Basic Life Support Training to revive or keep her heart beating. When someone slumps, it takes about five minutes for the heart to die and finally the brain – since blood is nomore getting to it. Bad thing is a true autopsy won’t be done to ascribe the true cause of death to be fatigue and stress. Once you can keep a heart beating, you most likely will save the person. Once again RIP Goldie, we love you. But God loves you more.

    • Deltachik

      February 15, 2013 at 4:11 am

      Excuse me, hospitals in Nigeria do not know the first thing about CPR, even though they are actually supposed to know. If they can’t treat someone someone with common malaria, what hope is there for someone with a heart condition. The truth is the Nigerian health system is screwed up. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear she was left to die without any resuscitation effort.

      No need to go there. Not if she had a saddle embolism, I’m in the US and even here, its hard to safe someone from that. IV Heparin would be the 1st treatment, and many people still die almost within minutes.
      If it was indeed a PE, CPR would be ineffective, its not that simple…

There is a far greater force out there who cares not who or what you are and can snatch you from existence when you least expect. This is a call to us all to make every second count, make clean handwritings on our slate so that whenever we answer the call, our memory leads a healthy life. Rest in piece Goldie, may God forgive you your sins and grant you eternal rest.

    Sad indeed, so young, so unfortunate.
    From the trip and all, seems like she developed a dvt (clot forming in her legs) and subsequently a PE (clot traveled and got lodged in her lungs), which is almost always fatal, even here in the US. She prob started having shortness of breath,chest pain…

    May God give her family, loved ones and Denrele the strength needed to make it through this dark period.

      And it was also reported that she had a severe headache prior to being rushed to the hospital. I find your diagnosis a bit off. Recent travel from Nigeria to US (9- 11 hrs direct flight maybe) seems a bit soft. Especially her young age (31), definitely not obese and of course I can’t tell if she had any underlying hematological disease. A ruptured aneurysm results in SAH (subarachnoid hemorrhage). Very high suspicion that it was (if the severe headache reported is true), respiratory support and emergent surgery would have helped. The fact that she is only 31, her chances for survival with the right health care should have been a lot better but then again Naija and it’s priorities…fancy wedding parties, expensive clothing and cars, wealth illegally or illegally acquired that the average citizens in developed nations don’t see in a lifetime and yet we can’t provide basic necessities such as health care and infrastructure. She probably had this brewing for a while, most health problems don’t start suddenly. Please don’t ignore symptoms especially when it’s persistent and listen to your body. For those people o here who choose to judge rather than state a fact, I would be very careful because we all battle with our imperfections and you amplify yours by judging others. May her soul RIP and give her family peace and comfort. We are all sinners but God’s children…………

      Thank you for that soo true

  64. Dr O

    February 15, 2013 at 5:42 am

    There are several risk factors for developing a DVT
    immobilization, so people on bed rest, hospitalized, sitting for long periods, like plane rides, cars…
    increased estrogen, so women on birth control, pregnant etc
    cancer, HIV, chronic diseases that cause the blood to thicken and impede blood flow
    genetic conditions.

    Folks should get up and move every few hrs when on really long flights. If pregnant, move at least every 2+ hrs. Pulmonary embolisms (PE) happens to young people too, esp if risk is compounded, say for example, you are a woman on birth control, or pregnant, and you are a smoker, and you are on a long flight, or on bed rest.
    Again may her soul rest in peace.

      Thanks Doc, for this. I’ve learnt something and will take it serious. Sometimes it takes losing someone to learn. Its just sooo shocking that one minute we are here and the next we are gone. It pains me badly to think I was just admiring your grammy pics again yesterday, not knowing you did be gone by evening. Sometimes I wish we all knew when our last breathe will be so our family, friends, fans, loved ones could know how to prepare but I guess it can’t be that way. RIP sweet Goldie.

    I don’t have all of the answers as to why she had to die, I know that God is a loving God and he would never take a person… that would not be loving at all….
    People, slow down. Stop, look around. God put this here for us to see. Our kids, parents, loveones go to war. Some will never return, some will. Don’t wait till they’re gone to say I love you. Although we loved you, God loved you more. SUN RE OOO!

    Life has a hard way of teaching us these lessons every now and again. For some people saying people were always hating on Goldie,now they are “acting” sad…. well yes, a lot of people did criticize her career, but it’s not like anyone ever commented on her pictures , music or stories saying “can this girl die already!!”
    please peeps, Just let it go and say a prayer for her family and friends.

    I am still in shock! I was not a fan of her music but after watching her on Big Brother I loved the person she is (I guess “was” is now the appropriate word). Some folks say they watched her live on a valentine show last night so why is the news saying she slumped immediately she got back from the US? And another question, can someone with am embolism still perform and then slump later?

Death is truly humbling and we must know that it could come at any time!She was at the grammy’s not having an inkling that she was gonna die two days l8r.

Rest in Peace, Goldie…May God accept ur soul…….this has signs of DVT (blood clot) and Pulmonary embolism (PE) all over it, esp as she was on a long haul flight. I was diagnosed with DVT in 2004 (final yr in uni age 22) and the doctors were shocked dat an active young lady could ave it, probably becos am HbSS (sickle cell). I ave been on medication (warfarin) since den and will probably be for life…… we young ones need to be more enlightened and read up on a lot of stuff esp concerning our health

    Let us give up on borrowing the money we dont have to buy what we dont need just to impress people who dont even see us and live an exemplary life.

Now she’s gone and we are all saying nice things and she is no here to read it. I doubt if she ever read a kind word on any of these blogs. Sooooo sad! Rest in Peace Goldie (Susan) Harvey.

    I always defended her not because i liked everything she did but because i know what it is to love and try to please so hard and yet always fall flat. Now i feel real sad. Really pained. She had her whole life in front of her.
    I pray she is resting in the bosom of our Lord.
    Please God after all she has been through on earth have mercy and grant her eternal rest. Till we meet again! Adieu Susan!!

    Shocked and sad is an understatement. I always loved her vibrancy, her videos and costumes where always eye-catching. I loved her boldness. Very daring personality. Not very people decide to go all out and be daring. So sad she’s gone now. May your soul find rest GOLDIE. Life is short…..put your best into everything you do whether you are scorned, criticized, or rejected.

    A lot of rumors out there as regarding why she died. I m not a Dr. but with my level of education, I dont need to research its really simple. After such a long flight, she should ve rested well before going to perform wit jaywon at the valentine show. Consequensially, this is a clear case of exhausion. RIP

    God Help and forgive us all. I see this as a wake up call cos i believe that most times we take life for granted in all we do. we procrastinate, bring pple down(weather we knw them or not) and are very selfish in most of our dealings as though we own our soul. let reflect on our lives today, develop a good relationship with our maker even us we mourn our dear friend and sister cos you never know when it will be your turn. RIP Goldie, may God grant your soul eternal rest.

    See them feeling guilty now, yetin a few days they will be back here saying very mean things about Toke, Tonto and who not. Its ok to criticise people but sometimes its very easy to cross the line and become cyber bullies. People hardly ever said a kind word about her while she was alive and yet she never wronged them, her only “crime” was wearing clothes that made her happy and loving the way she knew how to. Rest in peace Goldie, some of us truly appreciated you for being true to yourself.

    Many people are just posting statements on ‘I didn’t give her a chance or respect this girl …’ It is useless blaming oneself or crying over what we cannot change. Instead we should all ask, or better, pray that she made peace with God in her soul before she died. Because, if truth be said “what does it profit Goddie or any one of us if we gain the whole world – leading a life that displeases God through provocative videos, dressing and other actions – and suffer the loss of the soul”? What profit is there in that? Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson – all good children from birth until the world and the attraction of the flesh changed their views of what is important – to save the flesh or to save the soul for its creator? Goddie, rest in peace! My prayer is that I hope you made peace with God before the hour he called you because as the Psalmist said “a humble and contrite heart the Lord will not spurn”. No one of us knows the hour, not many will be given the opportunity Goddie had to make peace before the die. Hence, through Goddie’s death God is saying “Be prepared for no one knows the hour”. Thank God Lent is upon us. Use the time well.

    I wonder where she is right now. What would be the account she would give God for the life, strenght, beauty, talent … He blessed her with. I dont want to sound judgemental but just for us to think of the life we are living, is it pleasing to God? Yea she plans of launching a show in a couple of weeks and so death was not in her plans. We dont know when our own personal rapture would take place so it is important to be prepared. It is only in God that there is safety. Money can’t buy life else she would have paid for it. Lets find Jesus and live a worthwhile life with the end in perspective so we would assured of a terrific eternity in heaven. God’s Grace. May God give her family the fortitude to bear this loss.

      I know the point you’re trying to make so I’m not trying to take away from it. But honestly money can indeed buy life. It can buy you a longer life and that is God’s wish for us. Let’s get proper check ups. Let’s pay proper doctors. If we have the opportunity to travel to a country with better healthcare, don’t spend all your extra money on buying things for friends, instead get all your checkups ASAP. You might be walking dead and don’t know it. It’s not clear what killed her but even the sitting for long related disease people are talking about (ie the embolism), doesn’t appear just because you sat for long, you must have other risk factors and the sitting could make it worse. For me, that’s the moral of the story. BUY long life by taking good care of your health

    Let this demise inform us. Let it warn us. Let it be a golden opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour. Let ask Jesus to write our names in the book of life – so we have hope in the next life. Not just about church going but about Christ – Becoming

    Dear Youths: life is not all about clubbing, drinking, smoking, sodomy, etc Let give our lives a proper meaning by adhering strictly to the instruction of God that sent us here.

    Everyone talks about someone at some point in life, whether good tings or bad tings, dats y we are humans. Goldie was no exception, She had her share of hurtful words especially after her big brother fame. I might not have been her fan, does not mean i wished her dead. Some people seem very upset about ‘Goldie Haters’, yea Its normal…. but if u never talked bad about her, does not mean u dont talk bad about other peeps too. I tink its best to keep our lips in check. It is said that great minds talk about ideas, average minds talk about things, and small minds talk about people! We can never know the pain deep within the hearts of her family and close friends. At this time… we can only respect the dead and hope to see her in the ressurection instead of spitting hurtful words. its not too much to ask. My tots!

      You just said that to make yourself feel better. We don’t all talk about other people. Spreading horrible tales about someone in public is hurtful so don’t do it. There’s no justification and you’ll feel horrible if the person suddenly dies. Learn from those are saying they regret doing that to her and move on

I commented based on the fact that some were angry about peeps who talked bad about her, like they have never talked about other people. Not like i care about who talks about who. Apparently, u don’t understand simple English. “You just said that to make yourself feel better”?… What do i care? Hey, If u must know, I’m actually indifferent about her. Don’t get me wrong. I never hated her, i feel so sorry for her and commiserate with her loved ones.

    @ Itohan; I couldn’t agree more. Really, the cares of this world- school, job, career, family, activities, material security, marriage etc.- are distracting enough to make us forget the true meaning and intent of life. Yes we are to occupy time before Christ comes, but what we do is important. This song by Nichole Noderman sums it all up- Leave a legacy of Love- point to God enough to make a mark on things-forget the trappings of this world- how will they remember me- I’m guilty of this as well, but Goldie’s death should stir us up that death could come at the prime of life. May God grant us the grace to be ready for eternal life with Him when it calls.
    Goldie, RIP! U did want you always wanted to do and I hope you had your last moments to make peace with your creator. Adieu!
    Let’s pray for her family and friends cos losing a loved one is hard and God can turn it around for good for as many lives she has touched. God bless us all!

    Listen please my brothers and sisters, you must go for regular health checks!!! There is really no sudden death, more times than not, people have underlying medical conditions which they do not know about. I do not want to bore you guys with my story but bottom line, have regular total health checks every year. Stay away from drinking and smoking as they increase your chances of so many diseases,. nIgerian women, please, please make sure you get Pap smears and breast checks every year. Smoking increases your chances of plumonary embolism and lung and breast cancers. The money you spend on clothes and bags you can spend to get these checks in nigeria or abroad. Take it from someone who knows……….

Cant we show some sign of remorse for once? I heard one other Lady is currently trending with her post on Twitter saying rubbish about herself not Goldie. God is watching all of us. Some blogs are now posting, saying she’s Alive simply because they want to draw traffic to their site; whereas You and I know she’s Dead.

    Guys I believe the death of this lovely woman has aroused a level of compassion in everyone that knew her. Too many times while she was Alive I read some really hateful things able her written by humans like herself. The same thing goes for the way we write or speak about others (not just celebrities). Guys we are Human and we all feel. There’s nothing wrong with criticising but let us learn to criticise constructively. I don’t think anyone’s comment killed her but this goes to show That the person you speak ill of may not be here tomorrow. No one is perfect, accept and respect everyone.

In her next world she should try and make herself and people arround her more happier than she did. Fare thee well Goldie, at least you paid your dues.

    It’s sad that she left at a very young age. May her soul rest in peace. As a Nigerian American living New York City I have come to see that Africans judge people too much on what they see outwardly. She was a smart entertainer that knew how too get attention. When lady Gaga wore meat to the Grammys it was for attention. so whatever she did it was what was needed, to make it in a very tough competitive career.

If you thought she was talentless before please stop wishing you didn’t say so just shows you really have no conviction in what you spew, whether negative or positive. And lets face it if she was still alive no matter how hard she worked 80% of BN readers WILL find something to tear her down with.

    when i had the news it was a surprise to me but one thing i want us all to know is that the bible says, it has been appointed for a man to die once and after death is judgment. The most important thing is that where is she, heaven or hell you dont know, what we are meant to be begging from God everytime is forgiveness of sins and mercy because death is inevitable, one of my neighbour in my street passed on today which is surprising. May God have mercy upon us all. My last word is use your talent well because you would give account whether you used it to glorify God or not, your music, the way you dress, the way u talk, you will also give account after your death or on the last day which we refer to as rapture, be close to God this new year because Christ is coming soon. Goldie is receiving her judgment, heaven or hell as i have said we dont know likewise u reading what am writing. pls let us all be careful because we would soon be judged whether u love her ore not it is not God’s business

    Hmmm. I never liked her song and her image, i believe she was not a good influence on teenagers growing up. Life is short, hence the reason you must live a good life and leave a good legacy. For those female artist still alive, you don’t have to almost go nude to have a good video and there are lots of this to sing about not about you being sexy and and how to convert other men or husbands to yourself. Sing something educative and if you want to sing a love song sing a nice one. Asa is doing it and she is selling all over the world.
