Emotion ran high as friends, colleagues and family members paid their last respect to the late Pop singer and former Big Brother Africa Star, Susan ‘Goldie’ Harvey, when she was buried on Monday at Ikoyi Vaults and Garden, Lagos.

Goldie died penultimate Thursday night after a brief illness at Reddington Hospital, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Her husband, Mr. Andrew Harvey, who reportedly was refused visa into the country, finally made it to the burial. He performed his last duty to his wife whom he married in 2006.

Missing at the funeral rites, that had only family members and some close friends of the departed songstress in attendance, was Kenyan rapper and Goldie’s friend, Prezzo. He was last week warned by Goldie’s husband not to attend his wife’s burial rites.

Goldie’s husband, in his graveside tribute, said that there would be no other Goldie as her life though short was memorable.

He said: “Those cheeky smile, the time we spent together, oh no, there will be no other Goldie. God bless your soul in heaven.

“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.”

Goldie’s youngest brother, Gideon Filani refused to be consoled as he lamented the sudden demise of his sister, saying she died without fulfilling some of the promises she made to him.
