Photos: Denrele visits Goldie’s grave, writes touching tribute

In remembrance of Nigerian female singer Goldie Harvey, who died on 14th, February 2013 after returning from a US trip, her very close friend Denrele Edun visited her graveside as he does every year since her demise. See his touching tribute and more pics after the cut...

Denrele's tribute read:

GOLDIE: Closed eyes, heart not beating but a Living Love!

    I promise to carry on with our contagious smiles,

    The same one that would light up a room the minute you walked in.

    I promise to laugh and continue to never take myself too seriously,

    I promise to love harder and forgive faster.

    I promise to be content, in every sense of the word.

    To be thankful for the air in my lungs,

    and the EIGHT years I was blessed to know and understand you, OLUWABIMPE SUSAN             GOLDIE HARVEY.

I promise to try and have a bigger heart (larger than the one I already have) as you always told me to.

    To be selfless.

    To know what I have, and know what I can give to others who are not as fortunate.

    I promise to grieve that absence of your physical being for only a moment.

    And then I promise to set you free.

I promise to never give up on others but when I get to breaking point, Kick their asses to d kerb as u always told me to!

    I promise to be a friend and a confidante as you were.

    To be a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on or a set of ears to simply listen…

    And I can promise you this…

    I have always promised to open my heart to you when I fall in love and when I fall apart.

When I eventually get married and become a father (U always said I was excellent with Kids and I would spoil mine rotten).

    I promise to let you hear every giggle and feel every hug.

To know every new heartache (Yes o, still the hopeless romantic that I am with recent                 heartbreaking stories that you would have loved to hear!).

    and let you be there for every triumphant moment…

    The most important promise I can make,

    despite all my excesses and Gemini madness,

    A promise that carries the equivalence of all the rest combined is this…

I promise to make you proud….Heck yeah, World Domination is still our portion (I’m still working on everything we spoke about, pushing harder than ever, never relenting…)

    With all that I am,

    I love you everyday and now I will miss you everyday.
