I met her once: RIP Goldie

Yesterday evening while going through my pictures, I came across a picture that I took with her at the Paris airport on my way back home in October. We are on the same Air France flight to Lagos. I was actually about to delete the picture because I do not like the outcome. I said to myself someday whenever I see her again, I would take a better picture.

I remember tweeting that day, I wish she could just ditch the false eyelashes because to me she is actually a beauty minus the lashes.

She was so cool headed and sat alone laughing at the article she was reading in the magazine. Some guy walked up to her and asked her about Prezzo, she was all smiles and replied that he was fine. 

My cousin called me last night to tell me she is dead and I wondered what  sort of joke that was. Off I was to Linda Ikeji's blog and there it was...I still could not believe it and I went off to twitter and the venom of that site turned my mood into a mess.

I actually did love her as an artiste, she was creative and better than most of the so called next big talent in the industry. I loved her video with Eldee, "Mole gboko lowo e" back in the days.

I guess I might keep the picture since I would never get a chance to take another one with her. Her death is so unexpected and sad...

Rest in Peace, Susan Oluwabimpe Harvey

  2. She looks so pretty in the picture. I started following her news after BBA. Didn't really know her music except when I watched the skibobo video. It's a pity she went so young. No one really knows what tomorrow holds....
