Harvey had won several African music awards including a Top Naija Music Award. She appeared on Big Brother Africa in 2012 which was her first TV appearance. She and Kenyan rapper Prezzo, another BBA housemate, appeared to have a close relationship on the show.
After returning home to Nigeria from the 2013 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, she complained of a headache and was rushed to hospital where she was later pronounced dead. Although there were rumors that she may have used drugs that caused her death, her husband denied that possibility. According to an autopsy conducted by the Department of Pathology and Forensic Medicine of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, the Nigerian pop star died of ‘hypertensive heart disease,’ which triggered an “intracerebral hemorrhage." Goldie, 31 years old at the time of her death, was laid to rest at the Vaults and Gardens, Ikoyi, Lagos.
On 13 April 2013, press releases said that properties of Goldie Harvey have been willed to charity organisations.
