Sister of lady who died at Asake’s London concert criticizes him for using her image without their family’s consent

Racheal Ikumelo, the sister of Nigerian woman Rebecca Ikumelo, who tragically lost her life during a stampede at a concert hosted by singer Asake at Brixton O2 Academy on Thursday, December 15, 2022, has called him out for using her image without her family’s consent.

The “Lonely at the top” crooner held a concert at O2 Arena, London, on Sunday, August 20, 2023, and paid tribute to the two women who passed away during the stampede last year.

When Rachel saw a video of the tribute played at the concert, she was deeply infuriated and took to Twitter to criticize the singer for using her sister’s image without reaching out to their family beforehand.

She tweeted,

“What a sorry excuse of a “tribute” from @asakemusik. My sister lost her life at your show, and you haven’t spoken to a single member of my family since. But you can hold another concert in London less than 9 months later and play her videos as a “tribute”?

RIP Rebecca Ikumelo ❤️”

In response to her outburst, a staunch fan of the singer said Asake released a statement in which he sent a condolence to the family shortly after the tragic incident.

However, Rachel emphasized that the 28-year-old singer should have at least contacted a member of their family in person, before releasing the tribute.
