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 â€˜Amelionâ€™ and had everything set to make her a leading light in Zimbabweâ€™s music industry.
Keep It Low:
Amelia was signed with Bryce Music Nation.Â 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……”
