Eric Arubayi is dead

This is just so saddening…when life is snuffed out of someone seemingly full of life !

Gospel singer and the 3rd runner up at the maiden edition of the Idols West Africa, Eric Arubayi, is dead.

The young artiste, believed to be in his early 30s, reportedly died on Saturday at the Delta State University Teaching Hospital.

Eric is said to have fallen sick earlier in the week and was rushed to the hospital.

Efforts to get an official statement from his family proved abortive.

He is survived by his wife of three years, Chinonso, and a child.
