Every year since his sister passed away in 2011, due to a heart infection, singer Adekunle Gold has thought of her and wishes she was around to share his success with him.
Despite having enough money to take care of her, she succumbed to her illness.
It was his dream to share his success with the loved one who he described as “one of the few best friends I had but death took her away”. He said this in a report by Punch News on Saturday, January 19, 2019.
The singer who earlier nurtured optimism that she might live reckons that all alternatives were explored in order to save her life. Nothing different could have been done based on the report gathered Punch.
“The funny thing is that we had the money; it was not that we could not afford to treat her, but it was just unfortunate that she died.
“If I was as popular back then as I am now, what would I have done differently? I do not think that I would have done anything differently because we spent money on her. I was at home when she died, so by the time I got to the hospital to see her, she had died.”
