“With Tearful Eyes….” – Read BBA StarGame Alum Prezzo’s Tribute to Goldie

Goldie & Prezzo

In the wake of the shocking news of Nigerian pop star Goldie Harvey‘s death, her Big Brother Africa StarGame confidant and friend Prezzo has released a tribute poem. The Kenyan rapper who is reportedly on his way to Nigeria called Goldie a Goddess on his Facebook and Twitter pages.



Read the poem;
God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you, and whispered come with me
With tearful eyes we watched you, as we saw you pass away
Although we love you deeply, we could not make you stay
Your golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us…
He only takes the best

Rest in Peace, Goldie!

    No farewell words were spoken,
    No time to say Good-bye,
    You were gone before we knew it,
    And only God knows why????
    RIP Bimpe Harvey~

  • Retrochic February 15, 2013 at 5:03 pm

  • Yemi Ale February 15, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    • Truth be told February 15, 2013 at 6:03 pm

      Well said. that’s the irony of life… may she rest in peace

  • www.dprodigaldaughter.com February 15, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    I’m at work and I read this with tears in my eyes… we indeed need to live like we are dying. Are you still holding grudges against that person? Keeping malice? Not declaring your love for someone?
    Not pursuing your dreams? Are you still holding back on giving your life to Christ? Tomorrow may be too late; don’t waste another second..
    ….live your life now!
    Adieu Goldie…. till we meet to part no more ….


  • onomsy February 15, 2013 at 5:08 pm

  • Prettyme February 15, 2013 at 5:21 pm

    Thou its hard 2 believe… RIP my dear Goldie & take heart Prezzo

  • Chris Ayo Joseph February 15, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    Thanks Prezzo . May i also add up by saying that When people Thank God for the Miracle of Sleeping and waking up they aren’t being over Holy, They Only recognized The Almighty God who has the Final Say about LIFE.
    Is just so Hard to say Goodbye to Yesterday, Wished I had You on my Front Cover Before your Transition to Glory….. Sleep On Goldie>> I’ll always Miss You.

  • funmi February 15, 2013 at 5:22 pm

    From the wordings in this poem, i suspect Goldie might have a health condition that she didnt declare to everyone; Prezzo seems to be aware of it..And coupled with the fact that Reddinton was her official hospital; who uses that kind of expensive hodpital if there is no life threatning condition?; anyway God knows

    • x factor February 15, 2013 at 7:46 pm

      staff of multinationals(shell, mobil, coca-cola,etisalat etc) use reddington(without any life threatening conditions) my dear …….RIP Goldie

  • Olulu February 15, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    RIP Goldie

  • Retrochic February 15, 2013 at 5:35 pm

    awwwwwwwwwwww, God will sha console him, terribly sad

  • SS February 15, 2013 at 5:56 pm

    my heart is still very heavy,GOD knows best,i love Goldie’s songs and i would continue to,May GOD rest her soul

  • Rola February 15, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    @ single lady, u shld read @ yemi ale. Life is too short. Rip goldie

  • oluwafemi February 15, 2013 at 6:10 pm

    rest in peace dear girl, Life begins wit Him, and ends wit Him. I won’t pretend wit Him, Let everybody accept the reality of death, star or not. So painful…

  • salsera February 15, 2013 at 6:40 pm

    only an autopsy would reveal what happened. besides with health insurance loads of regular people use reddington hospital especially if they live and work on the island. I just hope she had her finances in order

  • oma February 15, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Strange this is the same Goldie that was criticized heavily on most blogs for her dress sense, what she wore to the Gram, her stay in BB that is now golden heart, my dear, will be missed by the same people who criticized her. God forbid that anything happens to Tonto, Rukky & Halima – wonder what will be said about them then… that’s life!

    • CHINESE LADY February 16, 2013 at 9:04 pm

      swit hart, i may not like sm1’s life style or dress sense bt it doesnt mean i want dem dead. RIP GOLDIE

  • Chris Ayo Joseph February 15, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    In my opinion, i think Goldie Might Have Died as a result of Blood Clot From Long Distance Flight. Whoever that was around her at that point when she slumped should have given her a thorough Heart Massage (10 Times), if that was done, i trust God that my Goldie will still be alive. We Nigerians sometimes are ignorant of little things. Anyway God Knows Best. Is just hard to say Goodbye to Yesterday. (Tears Drop) This is more than Crush… @Chris_ayojoseph

  • gistyinka February 15, 2013 at 7:48 pm


  • anonymous February 15, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    chris ayo joseph , pls just type rip or dont type anything at all. nobody wants to hear what ifs when mourning. God knows best, do not question, just be appreciative of ur own life simple.
    rest in peace goldie. u r in a better place.

    • Jay February 16, 2013 at 3:35 am

      So I guess u are dressed in black and stayed off work an food to mourn her. Anyone can comment based on how they feel at the time. He’s sensible enough to say that Nigerians do not recognize the manifestation of certain health conditions so as to administer first aid that coulda been helpful. Besides this is not a condolence register, so run up.

  • House of dus February 15, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    Sad dint know her personally but somehow tears rolled down my eyes. Life !

  • Stella February 15, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    RIP Goldie.. God knows best….

  • Emerald February 15, 2013 at 9:02 pm

    RIP Goldie.

  • yes i said it February 15, 2013 at 9:07 pm

    hmmmnn kenny ogungbe nko? he no follow for the long hour flight? some people say na cocacola(wink) kill am oo.. hmmnn

  • House of ZINNO February 15, 2013 at 9:35 pm

  • judgenot February 15, 2013 at 10:50 pm

    @Yes i said it you are a complete idiot and low life for insulting the girl did you ever see her taking drugs HOW DARE YOU SPEAK ABOUT SOMEONE YOU BARELY EVEN KNOW. IF you are so bold upload a picture of yourself let the world see you jobless cyber junkie

  • kay February 16, 2013 at 12:04 am

    @ yes i said it You are either mean or just plain ignorant, i can’t decide on which! The way people react to the same situation can be different! People involved in the same accident have different reactions; some are not injured but die of sudden cardiac arrest, some are seriously injured and still survive while for some nothing happens to them except for shock!! Just because Kenny Ogungbe was on the same flight doesn’t mean their bodies would respond the same way!! We don’t know what happened to her but it sure should make you think deeply that our bodies are imperfect and that everyday we live is a miracle, if you bother to watch medical documentaries you would know that this body can randomly start misbehaving cause its imperfect!! So hold your speculations and wait till the truth comes out!! But really mentioning cocacola,winks and all that in this context is an abuse of freedom of speech!!

  • Say What? February 16, 2013 at 12:06 am

    Rip GOLDIE, Rest easy. Let the world leave you alone now

  • ao February 16, 2013 at 12:21 am

    Rest In Peace, Goldie. Premature death is horrible. I wonder about foul play in all this.

    As for Prezzo, please do as Goldie’s husband asks and back off as you have caused enough “hurt” and “pain”. This is not your moment to shine.

  • ochege February 16, 2013 at 2:46 am

    I can’t believe goldie just left us like that,it is so heart breaking i don’t think any celebrity death has touch me like goldie’s own.this was some one i seeing for three months on my TV screen on bba. May her soul rest in peace

  • HABBA February 16, 2013 at 2:59 am

    apparently Goldie had a husband.

  • mama February 16, 2013 at 4:54 am

    @funmi stop showing ur ignorance by thinking ple that use reddignton hospital all have underlying medical problems….let ur poverty mentality not kill u….she probably died of deep vein thrombosis which is a risk that can happen to long didtance travellers due to various factors……as for u prezzo haters if goldie did not play a game with him despite being married he would not have had a chance to be friends with her….he was her friend and he had a right to express himself like anybody else so all that crap of backing off na wash…..goldie rest in peace, we all will miss you……b4 i go all u who think cos we criticized goldie when alive was cos we hated her, it was cos we didn’t like all she did or wore sometimes…..didnt think she was a great singer but she dared to be different….she was down to earth and genuinely cared about ple…..am definitely very very sad she was gone too soon….

  • Temzit February 16, 2013 at 6:38 am

    Can’t believe it, i was still watching a show she did on Good Morning Africa for valentine’s day. She was smiling soo muchh, not knowing it was her last good bye.

  • Temmy Fash February 16, 2013 at 8:38 am

  • Lecker February 16, 2013 at 9:14 am

    guess its time to start living out my dreams and stop laughing at people like Goldie and Kim who understand the true essence of living and focusing on ones dreams. she has left her footprints on the sands of time…

  • silent looker February 16, 2013 at 9:48 am

    RIP Goldie

  • Toyin February 16, 2013 at 10:14 am

  • patbliss February 16, 2013 at 10:39 pm

    it sad she couldnt give her life to Christ,its unfortunate but sha rest well

    • Phoebe February 17, 2013 at 7:33 pm

      And how did u know that @patbliss. U dont know her personal relationship with God, so don’t say what u aren’t sure about. Salvation is personal and the good Lord looks at the inner heart of man, not the outward appearances mortals focus on. May God forgive u.

  • told u February 18, 2013 at 1:57 am

    RIP Goldie. my condolence to her family
