Top 10 Nigerian Celebrities Who Died Before The Age Of 40, No 1 On The List Will Surprise You


Nigerian singer and Big Brother Africa star Susan Oluwabimpe “Goldie” Filani Harvey had a budding career and had established herself as one of the buzzing female musicians in Nigeria before she suddenly died on 14 February 2013.

She was only 31 years old.

Goldie died after returning home to Nigeria from the 2013 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, USA. She had complained of a headache and was rushed to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

According to an autopsy conducted by the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Goldie died of ‘hypertensive heart disease,’ which triggered an “intracerebellar hemorrhage.”

Goldie was buried at the Vaults and Gardens, Ikoyi, Lagos on the 25th of February, 2013.

Goldie was married to Andrew Harvey, an engineer based in Malaysia, in 2005, though this fact was not widely known before she died.
