Goldie - real name - died on Thursday after she complained of a severe headache at her Park View, Ikoyi, Lagos residence shortly after her arrival from the United States according to an official statement released by the President of Kennis Music, Keke Ogungbe.

Ogungbe describes Goldie's death as "shocking and untimely".

He said, We consider this period a gloomy moment for us and the entire Nigerian music industry in view of the circumstance Goldie passed away, the abundance of talent she has exhibited in her short but eventful music career and the various opportunities her trip to the United States of America would have availed her.

"She is survived by her father, step- mother, brothers and sisters. We deeply sympathise with her family and fans all over the world and very grateful to all and sundry, especially, the vibrant Nigerian media for their concern and prompt reportage."

Goldie has just jetted back to Nigeria after a short visit to the United States of America where she attended this year's Grammy Awards ceremony.

Meanwhile, the remains of Goldie, who hails from Ekiti State are been preserved at the mortuary of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Ikeja, Lagos. The family will announce the burial arrangements

Her latest musical releases included "Skibo", Miliki" and "Got To Have It" off her album "African Invasion".

Goldie was romantically linked to rapper Prezzo.

May her soul rest in peace.
