Frank Edwards, the Nigerian gospel singer, has reacted to the death of Osinachi Nwachukwu, his colleague.
Nwachukwu, who was popular for her collaborative hit track ‘Ekwueme’, died at an Abuja hospital on Friday where she was being treated for an ailment.
Edwin Alex, fellow gospel musician, had claimed that she died of throat cancer.
But a few hours after news of her demise circulated on social media, there were rumours that Nwachukwu endured an abusive marriage.
Some social media users had alleged that her death was as a result of domestic violence.
Imagine you came across a news saying Mrs Osinachi Nwachukwu divorce her husband, you would have come online and rant your disappointment at so call gospel propellers..:
But the worst news came out yesterday, she’s dead and that’s because she stayed in an abusive marriage..Advertisement

This talk of no divorce in a Christian marriage leads to the death of good women. Osinachi Nwachukwu is dead because of an evil man, and because society frowns at certain things.Advertisement
I still urge women in abusive marriages to leave without thinking about it. It is the right thing. pic.twitter.com/kjF3mVUNzY

As a Christian, once you are married and you are going through a lot in your marriage, don’t wait for anyone to tell you to separate immediately from your spouse.
No one is asking you to divorce. BUT separate before someone takes your life untimely.
Osinachi Nwachukwu Jumoke

Amid the controversy trailing her death, Edwards took to his Instagram page on Saturday to pay his tribute to her.
In the now-deleted cryptic post, the 32-year-old musician claimed that Nwachukwu’s death was caused by an “unreasonable human”.
The ‘Okaka’ crooner also alleged that a former director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) known as “Aunty Joy” tried to prevent the singer’s death.
“So that unreasonable human being finally put off a shining light,” he wrote.
“I won’t say much now, I’ll let the former NDDC director (Aunty Joy) who did everything possible to stop this from happening talk first, but it still happened we tried to stop this.”
Nwachukwu 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.’
