On February 11th 2017, Nigerian gospel artiste and former West African Idol star, Eric Arubayi, died from complications arising from taking fake anti-malaria drugs. Emotions went high following his sudden demise as many believed he had a promising future.
In an interview with TVC this morning January 2nd, Chinonso, his wife and mother of his son, recounted how she felt when he passed away three years after their wedding. According to her, she felt 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 said
Chinonso also spoke on why she had to quickly pick up herself and forge on 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
