Legendary Nigerian musician, Adeyemi Olumuyiwa Osinuga popularly called Nomoreloss died on Monday but what we didn’t know is that he reportedly committed suicide by drug overdose.
According to a close source who pleaded anonymousity, he said the singer has been secretly battling depression since his wife of many years rejected him because his career wasn’t thriving unlike when they first met in 2008.
The source said though he wasn’t close to the deceased in the earlier days of his career, he got to know him through a friend when his brother sent him packing out his apartment in Park View, Ikoyi.
The 40-year-old singer returned from the United States broke. In the process, he suddenly developed Malaria and had to spend all his life savings on it, hence rendering him bankrupt which forced him to move out of his matrimonial home to his brother’s place in Ikoyi. But for unknown reasons, he didn’t get along with his brother’s wife and the lady, opposed to housing him, would later come up with stringent rules that eventually sent him packing and he moved into an undisclosed hotel in Anthony area of Ikeja, Lagos.
After spending months in dejection without access to his daughter and wife, the lonely singer reportedly took his own life on Monday after overdosing on a combination of strong drugs.
We asked the source if his family knew he committed suicide because his family had said he died of typhoid fever while his friend, Ayo Odunsi said he died of Malaria and chest infection.
Nevertheless, the deceased will be buried on April 1st 2016.
