Popular Lagos DJ Buried Amidst Tears After Committing Suicide
A popular Nigerian DeeJay, DJ XGee who killed himself in Lagos, has been laid to rest day after the sad development. Popular Deejay XGee (real name was Seun Omogaji), who allegedly committed suicide on Wednesday, has been buried, Punch Metro reports.
The late disc-jockey was quietly buried at the Ikoyi Cemetery in Lagos on Thursday in a ceremony witnessed by only members of his family and close friends.
A few hours after the news of his death hit the Nigerian entertainment industry with the force of a cyclone, it was speculated that XGee took his own life by drinking an insecticide known locally as ‘Sniper’.
An indication that the deceased, whose profile had just begun to rise, might be contemplating suicide first emerged after he posted a strange message on Instagram, which got many of his fans, friends and associates immediately worried and suspicious.
XGee wrote, “Okay there is a twist to this last respect people give to their loved ones when gone. Black as signs of sadness… but in my case, please Rock WHITE because I love this colour so much.
“To all those I have made to smile and to those I have pissed off, trust me, I am only being human. Enikorewa, I love you so much. Eriayo, your name sums it all up. You are truly the reason for my joy.
Omobolanle Ajoke, you know I care. Moradeke, my mum may my God heal you and to my in-laws, stay blessed always.”
Below is a photo from the burial of the DJ as shared by comedian, Basketmouth.
Although the post was rightly interpreted as a suicide note, as it turned out, nobody knew what could have driven him to that point.
According to reports, those who knew the disc-jockey closely claimed that his marriage had been facing some crises. They said he had been having problems with his wife and at some point, he begged her to take things easy. Even when she packed out of their matrimonial home, they added, he had begged her to return, but she refused.
These witnesses also concluded that XGee had been battling depression for a while after the breakup till he decided to end it all by committing suicide.
