Popular Gospel artiste and West African idol 2nd runner up, Eric Arubayi died on Saturday February 11th, after a brief illness.
His brother, Derrick Arubayi has now revealed that his death which shook many was as a result of the expired malaria drugs he took.
Speaking to Vanguard, Derrick revealed that Eric had been sick with malaria and typhoid and things got worse after he took the expired drugs which led to liver failure and subsequently, his death.
He had malaria and typhoid, which was untreated. It later became worse after he took a medication that had expired and this triggered his liver ailment and afterwards, every other thing just followed at a fast pace before his death.
The only thing that we had to say is that he lived for Christ. We just want the world to know that the name Eric Odafe Arubayi was for a reason beyond the West Africa Idol show. For that reason, God would make manifest even beyond his glorious ascension.
Eric is survived by a wife and son.
