A TRIBUTE TO THE LATE DYNAMIC MUSIC STAR ‘GOLDIE HARVEY’

TRIBUTE TO GOLDIE HARVEY



Just like her name ‘Goldie’ everything about late dynamic musician Susan Adebimpe Harvey best known with the stage name “Goldie” oozed out gold. From her eye-catching videos to her flamboyant fashion style, down to her exquisite accessories and then to her luminous body which illuminated the whole place as well as brought live to her videos.

The British Nigerian pop artiste, studied business management at the University of Sunderland, UK. The Ekiti lady had five other siblings comprising three girls and two boys.

Goldie’s music career started in 2007 and ended abruptly in 2013 following her death on the 14th of February, 2013. She died after returning from the 55th Grammy awards. She complained of headache to her best friend at that time- Denrele edun, who rushed her to her official hospital in Victoria Island- Reddington. Sadly, Goldie never made it out of the hospital alive. She didn’t live to see another break of the day. She was later buried on the 25th of February at Vaults and Gardens cemetery, Ikoyi lagos

In a world were most musicians are associated with drugs, Goldie’s sudden death made tongues wag that the late musician was into drugs but an autopsy carried out by the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja countered such public notion, revealing the true cause of her death. According to their report, the creative singer died as a result of hypertensive heart disease.

Goldie was signed to Kennis record label before her death and had terrific sounds which were accompanied with colourful videos that were really entertaining to watch. She was expressive, had self-worth, highly sophisticated, a big spender and a lot more…

Even though Goldie died on a very popular day , a day set aside for love birds, a day set aside to show love to people “Valentine’s day” which means all would certainly not forget her as they can’t forget valentine, it is however ironical that media houses hardly remember or say anything about her death. It is also appalling that as the musician died, her songs also died with her as media houses seem to have quickly moved on to the works of only those that are still breathing. Meanwhile, it is hardly like that overseas, up till today, I still hear about 2pac, at times the way he is mentioned, you had think he was still alive.

Meanwhile Goldie was one tenacious lady, classy, resilient, eccentric, a go getter who was not intimidated by the male counterparts who dominated the music scene at that time. She kept on striving and aiming for the top. She was certainly the envy of her female counterparts in the industry. However, she was in no competition with anyone; she had her own type of song and brand. She was one of the female musicians in the country that paved way for other female musicians to start gaining immense recognition. Also, she was the only lady that spent so much to shoot a video and that capability is yet to be taken up by any Nigerian female musician; they spend also but not like goldie did.

She gave her best (financially and materially) to make her videos outstanding and the most talked about. She gave her best to build her music career. She was the only musician during her time that brought out a huge sum of money and spent it on videos just to make it standard and leave the audience staring at the scene.

Goldie Harvey was one person that stayed off scandals, though her appearance on the Big brother Africa game brought so much attention on her where people thought she was having an affair with housemate- Prezzo, little did they know that she wasn’t interested in him as late Goldie was already married to Engr Andrew Harvey but kept her marriage a secret. She was no doubt a kind of person that loved privacy and was not always too comfortable when asked questions. Goldie has a lot of awards to her name.

I was a great fan of hers; I loved the resilient spirit in her. She kept striving despite the little or no space the female musicians were given in the music industry at that time.

We at ‘OGEFASH’ Blog remember and honour Goldie Harvey and pray that her soul continues to rest in peace.

Her last songs two songs before her death were ‘SKIBOBO’ were she tried to create her own unique dance step, the video garnered over a million view on youtube, and ‘MILIKI’ FT NAVIO

THESE ARE THE MUSICIANS THAT HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS TO SATAN…

Well, those are not my words, but the words of gospel singer, Skid Ikemefuna which he posted on his facebook page. He however didn’t categorically mention the names of the musicians, but only identified them by saying the word “popular young Nigerian musicians.” His words “Many popular young Nigerian musicians have sold their souls to Satan for fame and money”. His post was shared and people demanded that he should provide evidence to what he posted.

The gospel singer however told those attacking him to google “Illuminati” His words “Please Google Illuminati… Nigerian members, actors, musicians, pastors. Visit YouTube”

BB NAIJA TOBI EMERGES HEAD OF HOUSE AGAIN


Tobi Bakre has emerged the new Head of House in the ongoing Big Brother Naija ‘Double Wahala’, beating housemates Miracle, Anto and Cee-C to win the title for the third time. In addition to his win, Tobi also gets to enjoy the luxury room with his strategic partner, Alex.

BLACK PANTHER RAKES IN $700M IN 10 DAYS, SMASHES BOX OFFICE RECORD


Disney’s “Black Panther” dominated the top spot once again this weekend at the North American box office, taking an estimated $108 million, and a global total of $700 million, according to estimates. The film is yet to open in China or Japan.

Following a record-shattering opening weekend — raking in $242.2 million — the frenzy to see the 18th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe continued, bringing total earnings to an astronomical $400 million in just 10 days, according to tracker Exhibitor Relations.

Directed by Ryan Coogler, “Black Panther” features an almost entirely black cast led by Chadwick Boseman as the first non-white superhero to get his own standalone movie in the franchise. Starring alongside the likes of Michael B Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o and Daniel Kaluuya, Boseman plays the titular superhero also known as T’Challa, king and protector of Wakanda, a technologically advanced, affluent, never-colonized utopia in Africa.

SHAKIRA PAYS $24.6m TO SPANISH TAXMAN


Superstar Shakira has handed over more than 20 million euros ($24.6 million) to tax authorities in Spain, a report said Tuesday. Shakira, who is a partner to Barcelona player, Gerard Pique had been accused of not paying taxes despite being a resident between 2011 and 2014.

Catalan daily El Periodico reported that the Colombian award-winning singer had paid the money “to settle part of the debt claimed by Spain’s tax authorities”, corresponding to what she allegedly owes for 2011.

The fiscal authorities filed an official complaint to prosecutors in Barcelona accusing her of not paying taxes, sparking an investigation, Jose Miguel Company, spokesman for the prosecutors’ office, told AFP.

The official complaint only covers the period from 2012 to 2014, however, as the time frame to prosecute alleged tax offences in 2011 has expired.

In a relationship since 2011 with FC Barcelona centre-back Gerard Pique, with whom she has two sons, the 41-year-old transferred her official residency to the Catalan city in 2015. Until then, it was in the Bahamas.

But “that doesn’t match reality, with the children in school in Barcelona and her partner here,” Company said, adding that prosecutors will decide in June whether to pursue the case.

Shakira’s representatives, meanwhile, say that until 2014 she earned most of her money in international tours and didn’t live more than six months a year in Spain — a prerequisite to be an official tax-paying resident in the country.

With her mix of Latin and Arabic rhythms and rock influences, Shakira is one of the biggest acts from Latin America, scoring major global hits with songs such as “Hips Don’t Lie” and “Whenever, Wherever.”

Shakira has sold more than 60 million records

In a bid to avenge the death of her family, she travels some kilometres away in search of powers from the all-powerful Deity ‘Ijamido’ who would usually shed tears before pouring out blessings on the villagers that want to be blessed.

However, Ijamido sleeps for a whole year after which it’s woken for a day to bless all the villagers who are already assembled and celebrating its arrival with so much ecstasy.
The native doctor tells Shola that he can’t wake the deity up. Shola is saddened about her wrong timing especially when the deity is still in its season of its sleep, but on her way, the child of a native doctor promises to help her in exchange of the money she wanted to give his father.

PLOT

Biliki’s mother in law and husband- Folurunsho warn her about Shola Arikusa’s powers. They also tell her that Shola isn’t likely to be easily defeated by the police. They advise her to either drop the case or resign from the job. She vows to think about what they both said

The native doctor- Adifala tells Honourable Goriola that he can’t help him win the election again because he wants his son- Fashali to also win. Goriola is infuriated that Adifala betrayed him by transferring all his rights to his son. Goriola reminds of how much he billed him. Their conversation goes awry as Adifala threatens to deal with him so he runs away.


Honourable Goriola goes to report Adifala to Sola Arikusa and seeks her help. He tells her that Adifala betrayed him and he is after his life. Shola bills him the same amount he had given to Adifala

During a meeting conveyed by the PPE party, they all mention their needs ranging from polo to poster and more campaigns to Fashaki, their impending governor. Shola’s girl appears and throws confusion in their mist. Fashaki brags that he is going to win the election whether they vote for him or not. He suddenly attacks his members. Two members from Fashaki’s party leave his party because of his attitude and join Goriola’s party.

Shola storms the police station. Because of her kind of being, they are scared to arrest her, they tremble at her presence. Shola demands the release of a certain prisoner- Yomi arrested unjustly. After Shola and the team leaves, the police in command tells his team to device ways to arrest her. Biyi enters the office looking ready to shoot Shola but he is told she has gone

A lady- Kudirat goes to visit the judgmental Muslim clergy, a lady comes to see him concerning her future partner and marriage. He condemns her nose ring. He asks the girl if they have had sex before and the lady replies yes. He curses her and tells her that she would go to hell for fornicating and wrong fashion.
Biliki is still up late at night working on her laptop. Folorunsho lets his wife Biliki know that he heard that Shola stopped by at the police station but they were unable to do anything.

The police men led by Biyi and biliki go after Shola. Confident in the charm his father Adifala prepared for him, Biyi orders Shola to surrender, but she doesn’t.

UNIVERSITY LECTURERS ARE THE MOST STINGY PEOPLE, YET THEY CAN SEND YOU ON ERRAND TILL YOU ALMOST SHOUT HAHA!


LECTURERS ARE THE MOST STINGY PEOPLE, YET THEY CAN SEND YOU ON AN ERRAND TILL YOUR FEET START THROBBING AND YOU SHOUT HAHA!

Infact they can send ghosts on errand self. When I say stingy, I don’t mean stingy with marks or grades. NO! Trust me, when you go on errands for them well, they will dash you free marks.

But my concern is lecturers that are stingy monetary and material wise. They are not openhanded; they are tightfisted. They are not generous at all. They do not believe in giving, they only believe in receiving to fatten their pockets more so that they can keep building a lot of houses,some of them don’t even buy cars for themselves- Chai!

They like to claim they are broke (na big lie), meanwhile if you check them, most of them always move around with ‘thousands’ in their bags or place inconspicuously in their offices on daily basis; they hardly keep money in the bank.

Sending people on errands is their hobby. It is on default for them and they tell lies a lot. As jovial as some of them may be, not a penny can fall from their pocket , and if you are lucky to get any penny from them, trust me it would be something they can’t even give their children.

I have overtime studied most of them and I can assure you that I have never seen anyone as stingy as these lectures. Recently, a former lecturer of mine gave me a research work to carry out for her. I spent money upon money, data upon data, nights upon nights just to do her work, only for her to tell me ‘don’t worry, I will fix you up’

Meanwhile, we would like to get your view. Lecturers are stingy. Agree or disagree?
