Goldie: The Autopsy Report

And the autopsy on Goldie's death which was carried out at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital on Goldie has revealed that she died of hypertension. 

The autopsy was conducted on February 19th and signed by Dr. O. Oyewole, states that she had a “terminal hypertensive heart disease” which resulted in “intracerebellar haemorrhage “ which lead to her death.

If people are now dying of hypertension at this age then God help us. 

Wikipedia defines intracerebral hemorrhage as a subtype of intracranial hemorrhage that occurs within the brain tissue itself. Intracerebral hemorrhage can be caused by brain trauma, Non-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage is a spontaneous bleeding into the brain tissue.

Symptoms include a rise in intracranial pressure which causes a severe headache followed by vomiting. Some patients may go into coma shortly after the symptoms arise.

This would explain why Goldie complained of severe headache before slumping and dying. 

It is also a warning to young people of today to watch how they manage their stress levels. I was once informed by another celebrity that Wizkid at one time had too many engagements at some time that stressed him and affected his performance. 

This is just one out of many.
