Although she died on Valentine’s Day, Goldie still apparently tweets from the great beyond!
This came to the fore when ‘Goldie’ on March 1 tweeted links to a song just released by actress and singer, Tonto Dikeh.
One of the links leads to a page on http://www.nigerianmovietube.com/, which has a video and review of Tonto’s latest song, Jeje.
‘Goldie’ also tweeted a link on the same website to ‘King’s Firstborn’, a movie starring Tonto and Chidi Mokeme.
Same day, ‘Goldie’ tweeted a link to a film titled Adam’s Desire, starring John Dumelo and Monalisa Chinda.
On March 5, ‘Goldie’ tweeted, “WATCH: Mr Ibu in London – Nigerian MovieTube.”
On February 28, exactly 14 days after she died of a sudden headache and hypertension, ‘Goldie’ invited her friends and fans to a candlelight procession in her honour.
“Candlelight procession tomorrow Friday 1st March 2013 at 6pm. Converge at Parkview Estate Gate in Ikoyi, Lagos… Show some LOVE,” the tweet said.
These prompted some people to wonder whether Goldie had somehow ‘resurrected’.
A commentator by the Twitter handle, @NigeriaNewsDesk, wrote, “Who Is Tampering With Goldie Harvey’s Twitter Handle?” while @naija_stuff tweeted, “jagudaDOTcom: Goldie Harvey’s account now tweeting links to movies & Tonto Dike’s music.” @NL_Official asked, “Can the dead tweet? Late Goldie Harvey’s account now tweeting links to movies & Tonto Dike’s song.”
Thereafter, attacks came in torrents, with tweets asking the ‘Goldie’ to stop advertising links in her name.
Here are some of them: @TemmyTia “Can you just respect the dead and stop promoting from her account?” @tobitubora, “@GoldieHarvey why can’t you pple respect the dead. n stop using ds account to promote selfish interest. Mind u,we shall all die one day;”
@topcomfy “Is it stupidity, attention craving or sheer insanity dt’s responsible for d tweets via @GoldieHarvey ‘s handle? Shut it down!”
@AbigailMwapule “@GoldieHarvey, could you please stop these your adverts! This is total lack of respect for the dead and also for the surviving loved ones
@herdedayor “@GoldieHarvey who ever this is, it is wrong to use this handle, change it or open another. This is totally wrong.”
@relatewithpius “@GoldieHarvey my Goldie,the golden hearted gal wouldn’t do this to another person;even if she has the chance like u. She must be turning now.”
