One of my bestie’s called me today, to find out if I knew about the unexpected passing of Zimbabwean up-coming artist, Amelia David.
I didn’t, I told her. As I researched on Amelia, it reminded me of the sudden and totally unexpected passing of Sam Mtukudzi, Oliver Mtukudzi‘s young son. Another one, gone too soon…
Amelia David was a promising 16-year-old hip-hop artist, [full name Nicole Amelia David] at the time of her passing. She was laid to rest on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 at Warren Hills Cemetery. The home-going service was held at Celebration Centre Borrowdale, in Borrowdale, Harare.
Not sure of the cause of death, I was reading somewhere, that it could have been a stroke, she went into rehab but unfortunately did not fully recover. If you have additional information, please let us know.
Amelia was known for her 2 hit songs, “Number One” and “Keep It Low” and had an album in the works. The Bryce music artist had just recently completed her debut album ‘Amelion’ and had everything set to make her a leading light in Zimbabwe’s music industry.
Keep It Low:
Amelia was signed with Bryce Music Nation. The video’s were shoot on the beaches of the beautiful Lake Malawi by a Malawian film maker Chipiliro Khonje.
Our most heartfelt thoughts & prayers are with Amelia David‘s family, friends and fans. “Let not your hearts be troubled……”
