Autopsy reveals cause of Goldie’s death

Late Goldie Harvey

An autopsy on late Nigerian pop star, Goldie Harvey, has revealed that the musician died of ‘hypertensive heart disease’ which triggered ’ intracerebellar haemorrhage.’

The autopsy, done on February 19, was signed by Dr. O.O Oyewole of the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, according to a report on a celebrity blog, Olufamous.com. The blog also provided a copy of the autopsy report (see below).

These revelation has put paid to speculations that the musician died of doping complications, a suggestion her widower, Andrew Harvey, quickly dismissed.

Some newspapers and websites (not PREMIUM TIMES) had reported that the late musician was a victim of doping gone awry.

Lagos-based evening tabloid, P.M. NEWS, had quoted  sources close to the music star as saying Goldie had been into drug for sometime  and that there were complications this time around.

But in a post on his Facebook page, Mr. Harvey said the  musician was never into drug for all the years he knew her.

“Goldie never used drugs in the last 10 years I knew her and I was as close as you could get,” he said.

The musician, who was a contestant at the last Big Brother Africa reality show passed away at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island, Lagos on February 14.

She reportedly returned from the U.S. the previous day before suddenly falling ill and taken to the hospital where she died.
