Nathaniel Bassey, the Nigerian gospel singer, has reacted to the death of Osinachi Nwachukwu.


The gospel star best known for the hit song, ‘Ekwueme’, died at an Abuja hospital on Friday.

Since her demise, there have been allegations that the singer was a victim of domestic violence.

Osinachi’s husband, accused of being physically abusive, has been arrested by the federal capital territory (FCT) police command.


Commenting on her death on Tuesday, Bassey described Osinachi as a “powerful minister” with exceptional humility, adding that the circumstances surrounding her death are “annoying”.

The ‘Someone’s at the Door’ singer, who doubles as a pastor, noted that “red flags” should not be ignored in relationships.

“In the past few weeks, I have had to share very hard posts. Posts of very wonderful ministers of the gospel who have passed. Attended two service of songs of young folks. And the harsh realities of life just stare in the face. Death is inevitable, but we don’t pray for it before time,” he wrote in a post on his Instagram page.


“However, this one has been very annoying, hearing the circumstances surrounding the death of our sister. One whose voice thundered and reverberated powerfully in worship. I remember how she’d come to me with a smile and humility saying hello when we had to minister at worship events.

“But she’s with our a Lord now. But I can’t help but say, a little early.

“Let me pray this again my friends, ‘May you not marry your enemy’. Marriage is good and Honourable. But also not by force. To those about to marry, shine your eyes. love is not blind. Because God is love. And God is not blind.

“Don’t ignore red flags. Even when you say, or they said, ‘God said’ but you identify some traits very inconsistent with godly character, pray and check again.


“And to those in horrible marital situations, both men and women, I pray for you today, May God give you wisdom to make the right decisions before it is too late. In Jesus’ name.”
