Self-styled nigeria investigative journalist, Kemi Olunloyo has reacted to sudden death of YouTube star, Nicole Thea.
Kemi Olunloyo in an Instagram post blamed the late Nicole Thea, who died with her unborn son, as the cause of her own death.
“To all Nicole’s friends and supporters it is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Nicole and her son she and Boga named Reign sadly passed away on Saturday morning,” the statement read.
The message explained that Thea had pre-scheduled “a few YouTube videos” to upload on her channel before her death, and that her partner, Global Boga, (whose real name is Jeffery Frimpong), had “made the decision to allow them to be aired.”
The family asked for privacy, saying “our hearts are truly broken and we are struggling to cope with what has happened.”
The cause of Thea’s death is not yet known. The former dancer was around eight months pregnant.
Kemi Olunloyo post suggests that she blamed Thea death mainly on the fact that the YouTuber was showing her pregnancy online too much. She said:
“For me it’s a personal opinion: How come so many showing their pregnant belly on this app always lose their baby and now her life? NICOLE IS DEAD!! Pregnant ladies, I believe in this destruction juju.
Stop exposing your personal pregnancy life on social media. Not everyone is happy for you. This young pregnant media personality lost her life and the baby. Her family wants privacy while most of you want to know what killed her.
This is where I come in but you now see why Investigative Journalism with no funding ends. I know how she died. It will come out later from them. “A month full of sadness, health gone and life ended” the opposite of her caption. Lord plssss watch over us. May she rest in peace”
Meanwhile, Fans reacted to her opinion as regards Nicole’s death;
One Cdorfobia: “I said the same thing. Stop copying all these white folks, they don’t have witches and wizards in their family. Always remember you’re from the midst of black people, people with black minds. RIP to her”
One Iyeowuna: “Exposing ur innocent babe to dis wicked world??? they think most barren women have only health issues? There is more to it. God help us”
One Toheeb: “it’s high time we stop copying the western way, we are Africans and we have culture, exposing pregnant belly online doesn’t make any sense… anyway I know some people will say it’s superstition but I have said what I said anyway, RIP to the dead”
