As the news of the death of Goldie echos around the continent, fans and colleagues continue to express shock and grief.
Kenyan rapper, Prezzo who was romantically linked with Goldie following their love affair on the Big Brother Stargame TV show, has also responded the shocking news with a touching tribute on his facebook page.
God saw you were getting tired, and a
cure was not meant to be
So he put his arms around you, and
whispered come with me
With tearful eyes we watched you, as
we saw you pass away
Although we love you deeply, we could
not make you stay
Your golden heart stopped beating,
hard working hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us…
He only takes the best
