Susan 'Goldie' Harvey Finally Laid To Rest In Lagos

Family, friends and colleagues of Nigeria’s Afro pop singer, Oluwabimpe Susan Harvey, popularly known as Goldie Harvey, today paid their last respect to the singer as she was buried at the Vaults and Gardens Cemetery, Ikoyi, Lagos.

The late singer, whose remains was placed in a brown MIC Casket, was brought into the premises in a R350 Mercedes Benz hearse at around 10:00am.

During the private funeral, Andrew Harvey, Goldie’s husband who surfaced few days after her death on 14 February, paid a moving tribute to his wife:

“Susan you walked into my life, it was like God sent you as a fresh breath. I still remember your response to my first love message. You said ‘Love killed Romeo; sent Diana to an early grave and killed Jack on the Titanic. Forget about love, just have friendship and live long. Overtime our love grew to a depth I have never known. You were the best years of my life, your smile, your desire to live your dream.”

Her siblings read both the first and second Bible readings before she was interred in one of the private vaults at the cemetery.

In his moving tribute, Goldie’s close friend and Channel O presenter, Denrele Edun, who was a shadow of himself, described the deceased “just as gorgeous now as when last I saw her. Her slightly disappearing figure and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.”

“The Goldie I knew despite the World recognition, I would move mountains, I would break ceilings sell your legacy and you are the best friend I forever had’, I can hear you say to me, do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. Do not stand on my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die,” teary-eyed Edun said.

Also paying tribute to one of his prized artiste, Keke Ogungbe, President, Kennis Music, stated: “Lovely and talented Oluwabimpe Goldie Susan, if I’m to start saying all I can’t finish. Though it’s painful, so lovely to have left on Valentine’s Day, May almighty God grant your soul eternal rest forever and ever in Jesus Name Amen.”

Others in attendance at the burial to pay their last respect to the singer are Chris Ubosi, Dele Momodu, Mayor Akinpelu, Kunle Bakare, Olisa Adibua, Jaywon, Eedris Abdulkareem, DJ Jimmy Jatt, KSB, Essence, Weird MC, ID Ogungbe, Gbenga Adeyinka 1st, eLDee the don, Julius Agwu, Freeze, Tiwa Savage and others.

Goldie died on the St. Valentine’s Day of Hypertensive heart disease some hours after returning from the 53th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, United States.

The autopsy carried out February 19 and signed by Dr. O.O Oyewole of the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine said she suffered a terminal ‘hypertensive heart disease’ which resulted to’ intracerebellar haemorrhage.’
