Andrew Harvey and bestie Denrele Edun Pay Tributes as Goldie Finally Goes home..

Tribute by Denrele Edun
 My super star friend sways away and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says "she's gone"...Gone where?

    Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as gorgeous now as when last I saw her.

    Her slightly disappearing figure and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.

    And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she's gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout - There she comes! That is what dying id - An horizon and just the limit of our sight.

    My lifeline, my lexicon, Therapist and support system…we have known lots of pleasure, at times endured pain, we have lived in the sunshine and walked in the rain. I had acute malaria (was shaking terribly) but performed “skibobo” with you at the Industry Night and Loud&Proud show, I sprained my ankle but still shot your three videos in a row in S/A.

    I left my family house and moved in with you and your family right after all the Big Brother Africa madness, I did all the damage control….

    I fought every organizer simply cos I wanted you on the bill with me and split my show earnings with you, I dragged you to the American Embassy even if it meant I had to get up at 4am. I endured negative criticism because shallow minds couldn’t comprehend your brand essence – I started wearing block heels (you got me the most fabulous pair of Jeffrey Campbells) and I damned the consequences. I recorded the reality show “Tru Friendship” with you because you went on and on about it and I wanted to please you.

Stepping Out of the Closet:Two suits two Dresses!!!

So I have been wanting to do this post for a very long time yet procrastination has always gotten the best of me.

This somewhat hush hushed topic has been playing alot on my mind for a long time and as i sit typing away at my Laptop i am well happy i finally got to this.

In recent Times being gay or gay related issues have been coming up around from some people being beat up for being gay and some guy who recently had butt implants plus Clive Davis also coming out recently.I dint really know alot about this subject until i had the opportunity to travel abroad because back home being gay gets you a jail term.(At least the last time i checked) so even if there were gay people back home we may never get to know them.

I would hear stories about peeps who committed suicide for being gay or for fear of coming out, existence of gay clubs, communities,foundations,organisations and what have you.. And I began to think to myself are people really gay?? As in seriously some people are gay?? It was kinda fascinating.

Then I noticed there were even gay marriages and Civil ceremonies and then i thot NOOOOOOOO!! how do they get intimate??Noooooooo The ?????? NOOOOOOOO  u dont say!!! You mean where we do the dump?? Nooooo i mean have you ever experienced those dumps that you do and your weight goes down by 5kg when you are done??and you cant sit properly for 3 days on??to the extent you need a plunger or need to call the plumbing guy...lol..
NOOOOOOOOOOOO that can t be?? It cant be how they do it . how does that happen with gay people?? how do they cope with that?? Do you know?? Can you tell me?? Make it clearer.. will ya??

I was just all fascinated by this phenomenon how can you not like the opposite sex?? what happened to opposites attract??,I began to watch documentaries,watch shows(Much recently the new Normal) and In one show(cant quite rem the show now it was about taking gay people for bonding to convert them) they almost convinced me that people are born gay..Naaaaaa that dont do it sorry I disagree or do u agree with that??

I still kept wondering and reading about this subject ..You wonder at my fascination and you ask am i gay?? NOOOOOOO!!  I love me some Idris Elba any day have you seen that guy shirtless? or watched him on Obsessed alongside beyonce?? I became Obsessed after that movie somebody get me his Number pls will ya?? Lol!

In my research I found this "Lovely" Wedding (See below) Someone sent it to me and I was like whose wedding is that and she said why not have a look I did and my first thought was what a waste of testosterone I mean!!! Have a look at these guys both are "chocolately" hot if there is a word like that..lol.. why waste all that manly goodness,manly sweetness (~wink~)and then i watched again and what stuck out for me was they were extremely happy and with a lot of support and then i watched again  errrmmmm ...again,i mean again and then one more time..they got me so confused..my GOD!

Could this really be real?Could two people of the same sex fall in love?? and then i thought but i am Christian I am not allowed to believe it its against my faith and what i believe in, but then again am not allowed to judge?? am i??

Lots of celebrities that i have known to come out gay (Dont know of any back home in Nigeria well yet!)

Like ..
Ellen DeGeneres: Ellen hosts a Talk show with lots of celebrity "dropbys" and a lot of charity work she is married to her partner Portia de Rossi.

  Arm in arm: Ellen and Portia wore matching pale outfits - white for Ellen and cream for Portia
Ellen is one of the Celebrities that are as easy going and hardly gets into any mischief or hardly would you hear any bad or shameful act or behavior from her quarters.
Should i like her less because she is gay?? did i hear you say NO i thought so too..

Eva Alordiah's Glowing tribute to late Goldie Harvey..

Eva's Tribute..


How do i begin this? It is already too difficult to talk about you using words like ‘Was’ when i really want to say ‘is’ and ‘Would have been’ when my heart whispers ‘Would be’.

This is absolute insanity. How one minute you are here, vibrant, happy, excited about all the work you have mapped out for 2013. How you stayed cheering me on, telling me how you admire me, how you want to be there to help, you stoop low enough till I can hop on your back and bear my weight on your shoulders, regardless of the luggage you already have on yours.
Isn’t it ironic how everyone hated you for this and that, when all you ever wanted to do was entertain them. What’s sad? They still have something bad to say even in your absence. I am sad! You were here before me, and when i stepped my skinny legs in this wicked place to explore my music, You were one of the few out doing something different. You stood out like yolks stand out of egg whites.
Goldie Susan Harvey
How you handled this evil, self-centred, ‘I-have-only-bad-things-to-say’ people for as long as you did is what baffles me.
You exhibited such strength, such outstanding emotional stamina that it seemed like you could do all wrong in their eyes and still stand, here, entertaining us from the bottom of your heart.
We had a conversation to finish Goldie! Remember? Now i feel like i would never be able to tell you what really happened contrary to what everyone thinks. I remember the last time i saw you, you were so mad at me for not telling you about me leaving the Label. And with good reason too! You hooked it all up didn’t you? So Goldie. Always ready to help. Sad when your friends are sad.
You said to me ‘Ehnnn? Eva you are not signed? Isssaalie! Are they blind? Let me talk to —- for you sharp sharp. He just got this new deal mehhnn, you must rock it oh. I won’t stop disturbing him till he signs you.
And off you went! You took it upon yourself to make sure your friend asked me to sign with his label. And how so stupid I was not to have told you first the minute shit hit the fan. I hope the little I was able to explain to you was of any good. (sigh)
All that is gone now.
Even you are gone. Life is Crazy.
I am grateful today, that I had the pleasure of working with you Goldie boo, traveling, touring, doing shows with you. I loved you from day one! Fresh into the university and without a clue what I wanted from life, there you were on my TV screen doing what most women didn’t dare. Even I didn’t understand you at first.
But I understood this one fact ‘You were YOU!’ And it hit me right there. I finally realized what I wanted to do with my life. I wanted to be me. ME! Without a care in the world what ‘they’ say as long as I am me. No compromise.
You didn’t just inspire and motivate me, you have kept me here.
If it wasn’t a phone call to find out if i was okay, it was a BB message to make me laugh my heart out.
My Dear Goldie, My sister, My friend…. I cannot ever answer the question why but I know that God never works without purpose. So i am not going to ask why either.
I am going through a lot right now, this is one of those times we would have had a BB conversation and you would have put my worrying mind at ease. But then I think about it, like you always noted, ‘I haven’t even scraped the surface of what you have’.
All the times you cried and carried the pain in your heart like an artery, all the times you thought about giving it all up and let your tears flood up your pillows like rain, they didn’t see that. Yet the little they saw they hated. They mocked. Their shallow minds could not comprehend it. 95 per cent of these are the same who have turned around now in your passing to offer words of kindness that you longed for while you were here. Haha !isn’t it amazing how they suddenly see how creative your videos were? Nwannem! Odikwa very strong tin!

You are gone now my love, as much as it kills me to type that out, I have to face it. If you are sitting on the right side of God our father, please beg him and intercede on my behalf while I Pray. As I go through the sort of things that you did, as I struggle to become somebody my parents are proud of, as I face this wicked place and its wicked people all by myself, as I say Goodbye to Friends who have become Foes overnight, as I stand in the midst of people who hate me for no reason and take it upon themselves like a day job to bring me down, intercede on my behalf dear Goldie. May the Lord answer my prayers…the same sort you prayed while you were here.
Thank you for letting me into your world even for a short time. What great blessing it is to have known the real you, the soft, kind-hearted, always-ready-for-a-good-laugh beautiful girl that you were.
I’m too sad.
Rest in Peace my friend, in the beautiful wonders of everlasting eternity where no one judges you.
Love always,
