It’s a sad day in the entire Christian Music Industry as we mourn the early passing of gospel artiste and Idols West Africa runner-up, Eric Arubayi. News about his death rocked social media at the late hours of 11th February 2017. He passed on after a brief illness at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital. He is said to have suffered liver failure after taking expired malaria drugs.
He was in his mid-thirties and is survived by his wife of 3 years, Chinonso Arubayi and son, Jayden.
Celebrity friends have reacted in different ways but all giving thanks to God regardless. He is said to have lived quite an impactful life, made many people smile, according to close friend and producer, Wilson Joel, who produced a song for Eric’s unreleased album.
We pray for God’s comfort and succor for his wife.
RIP Eric Arubayi. Heaven just gained an angel!
