Ego, a well-known Nigerian singer who served as Lagbaja’s backup singer in the past, has passed away. Her husband was Niyi Ogbaro.
Chris Kehinde, a Nigerian journalist, claims that Ogbaro passed away on Wednesday in the US.
On Thursday, he posted a picture of the couple to his Instagram account along with the caption: “Ohh No Victor Niyi Ogbaro this can’t be true. Victor and husband of Ego died today from what I just learnt. May his soul Rest In Peace.”
Ego, born Nwakaego Iheanacho, got married to Ogbaro in 2009. They, however, lived apart for a while.
Before her husband’s death, Ego removed Ogbaro from her social media accounts fuelling rumours of trouble in their marriage.
