Skales, however, didn’t disclose the circumstances that led to her death.

A number of celebrities and fans have taken to the comment section of the post to offer their condolences.

Skales has established himself as a household name in the country’s music industry since he started writing rap songs in 2000.


The rapper got signed to EME in 2010 and left in 2014 following the expiration of his four-year recording contract.

He has received several awards and recognition for his craft.

In 2019, the singer recounted how he grew from relative obscurity into prominence.

“I am a star now. When I released my first single 10 years ago, nobody knew who I was. I have more exposure now and I have grown in my music too. As we speak, I don’t think there is any music-loving Nigerian who doesn’t know Skales,” he had said.
