Emotions went high following his sudden demise as many people believed he had a promising future. In an interview with TVC on January 2nd, 2019, Chinonso, his wife and mother of his son, recalled how she felt when he passed away three years after their wedding. According to her, she felt she had been betrayed by God.
“My husband & I lived a faith based life. When he died, I lived in denial because I felt betrayed by God that my husband, a Gospel artiste, could die. I fell into depression, shaved my hair & wouldn’t accept inspirational messages from well wishers” she added
She also spoke on why she had to quickly pick up herself and continue with life ”In order to pay my own bills, cater for my son and convince people to allow me make them up, I had to start looking good again. From there, I started my make up line and media hustle” she said.
