TV personality, and bosom friend of late Goldie Harvey, Denrele Edun is still mourning the demise of his friend and pal, Goldie Harvey.
Denrele reportedly witnessed the sudden demise of Goldie at Reddington Hospital in Victoria Island, Lagos, last Thursday. Since her demise, former Sound City VJ has been out of reach as he switched off his cell phones.
Showtime however managed to contact him on phone during the week. But unlike Denrele, he declined comment on the death of his close friend and pal.
“I don’t want to answer any question please,” he snapped. All attempt by showtime to get his comment on Goldie’s last moments on earth met a brick wall, as he suddenly handed over the cell-phone to the late songstress’ manager who muttered, “Right now, we don’t want to say anything at the moment because there are too many dramas already, and journalists won’t allow us rest.”
Asked why the decision to keep mum on Goldie’s death, the late singer’s manager replied; “We don’t want anymore drama about her demise. Her family members would appreciate it, if you all allow things to be. Already, a lot of stories have gone viral on the internet and newspapers.”
However, before her sudden demise, Goldie and Denrele had planned to debut with own reality TV show this February called – Goldie and Denrele: True Friendship.
The show, which is being produced by Tee Jay Star, is about two friends in the volatile Naija entertainment industry, and how they supported each other, had disagreements, their quiet moments, and their day to day struggles. They had already shot some episodes.
Beside this, Goldie was also billed to make a special appearance on the set of Nollywood actress, Lizzy Anjorin. Her death has generated a lot of controversies. First, the uploading of their wedding pictures online by her Malaysian based husband, Andrew Harvey, the emergence of a woman who accused the late songstress of snatching her husband from her and of course, the Kenyan rapper and former BBA housemate, Prezzo who has been accused of causing the bereaved family a lot of pain.
