Osinachi Nwachukwu, Nigerian gospel singer popular for her collaborative hit track ‘Ekwueme’, has passed away. She was 42-year-old.
Edwin Alex, fellow gospel musician, broke the news in a touching tribute via his Facebook page.
It is understood that Nwachukwu died on Friday at an Abuja hospital where she was being treated for an ailment.
In the post, Alex claimed the singer died of throat cancer.
He also disclosed that her demise comes about six days after he announced plans to feature her in his forthcoming project.
“Just six days ago, I called Mr Peter Nwachukwu to declare my intentions to do a song with his wife, Osinachi Nwachukwu and have her for my next meeting as well….” he wrote.
“He accepted my request, but asked me to give him time to pray about it, I was in Abuja on Monday, called him again, and he said he’ll call me back the next day, the following day his lines were off, not until now I saw this news, and I had to call him only to confirm, what is this?
“How on earth can one die of throat cancer, the same voice she screamed for God in worship, this is the devil trying to accuse and mock the church of Christ. We mourn you but we know you’re with the father in heaven…. RIP God’s general.”
The singer came into the limelight in 2017 after she featured in ‘Ekwueme’ by Prospa Ochimana.
Other of her collaborative songs include ‘Nara Ekele’ and ‘You No Dey Use Me Play.’
