Nigerian singer BigLo dies of kidney failure


Popular Nigerian singer Lotanna Udueze, more popularly known as BigLo, has passed on.

According to close friends, the singer who was down with a kidney ailment died on Christmas day.

Biglo’s kidney ailment was diagnosed in 2018 and last year, he began undergoing dialysis at a nursing home in California, U.S three times a week.

He also tried raising funds for treatment. His UK based cousin, Zuby Udezue tried to raise £50,000; about N23 million at that time.

Biglo who was popular especially in the early 2000s with fellow musicians, 2shotz and StylPlus, shot into limelight with the hit ‘Delicious’ which featured 2shotz. Although the track earned him a HipHop World Award for Best Rap Collabo, the chubby rapper however, went underground after the buzz died down.
