Sky B, Nigerian rapper, has been reported dead after suffering a heart attack in Owerri, Imo state.
It is believed that the veteran singer died on Tuesday at the Federal Medical Center in the state after he was found lying unconscious in his home.
The talented artiste is renowned for his 2007 hit song ‘I’m Calling’ and other tracks which made waves at around the same time — including ‘You Promised Not To Go’, ‘Pray For Me’, and ‘Here I Am.’
News of Sky B’s death came less than a two weeks after Omeofa Oghene, reggae singer better known as Mad Melon, under the music group ‘Danfo Driver’, passed away in a Lagos hospital.
Daddy Showkey, a veteran Nigerian singer, had taken to Instagram page to break the tragic news to fans while commiserating with the family of the deceased singer.
“Can somebody tell me that it’s not true that we just lost Mad Melon DANFO Driver. What kind of sad news is this? Oh my God, we just lost somebody, I just heard it just now. I’m not happy at all, I’m not happy. When dem go dey tell people make dem dey hear, make dem dey hear,” he had exclaimed.
Tributes have begun to flood social media for the veteran singer. May his soul rest in peace.
