Popular Nigerian artiste, Biglo, has died after battling kidney disease.
His colleague and friend, Jazzman Olofin, told a popular Nigerian tabloid via a telephone conversation that the rapper died on Christmas day.
Olofin said, “It is true that Biglo is dead. To my knowledge, he had been ill for a while. He had been battling kidney disease. He had been notifying the public via his social media account for a while now.
” I got a call from our mutual friends in America last night that he died on Friday, which was Christmas day. Unfortunately, I do not know how old he was.”
Before his death, the veteran rapper made public his kidney ailment in 2018.
He opened a Gofundme page where he solicited for public funds. According to him, it made him go through dialysis three times a week since it was discovered.
Biglo revealed how his life had been upside down since he was diagnosed with kidney failure; he lost his job, car and even his house as a result of his ill health. He appealed to everyone to help him foot all his bills and get a kidney transplant in India.
The rap artiste was known in the early 2000s for his collaboration with 2shotz and StylPlus.
