Breaking news SKY B Nigeria’s music star in an accident yesterday please join me in prayers…
In the 2000’s Sky B was about the biggest new kid in Nigerian music at the time. Sky B’s accident is coming when Nigerians are still mourning veteran singers Ras Kimono and Moses Ochie of ‘Fellyx and Mozzyx’ fame.
While Ras Kimono died after reportedly slumping at the airport, Moses died in his Lagos home, after battling with a chronic kidney ailment for seven years. He was reportedly diagnosed with the ailment on Christmas day in 2011. He was preparing for a kidney transplant and hip bone replacement surgery before his death.
His death was confirmed by the board and management of Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) who described him as a very talented and committed member of the society. Coson’s Head, Corporate Affairs, Chibueze Okereke, said the society took active steps to generate resources to support his treatment, but he passed on before the treatment could commence.
His ex-band mate and partner, Felix Eiremiokhae, also took to Facebook to pay his last respects.
He wrote, “So sad but with thankfulness to God for the life he gave to our brother, Moses. It was a seven year battle with kidney issues and for seven years he fought both here in Nigeria and in India where he successfully did a transplant which later failed with complications and he fought to the last day . In 1991, he sang “I wanna be free”, wanting to be free and today, he is free from all the troubles of this sinful world. RIP Moses (FELLYX & MOZZYX) the late 80’s/90’s pop musical group. I believe the angels are smiling welcoming you home with open arms.”
