Gospel singers, Frank Edwards, Mercy Chinwo, Gozie Okeke and others on Tuesday held a night of tribute in honour of the late gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu.

The event which took place at the Cathedral Church of Good Shepherd, Independence Layout, in Enugu was attended by other gospel singers like Evang. Dan Ikeh, Ada Mabaka, Dc Emmanuel and Osinachi’s former music group Glorious Singers.

Osinachi Nwachukwu’s children also came to pay their respect.

During the praise session, Gozie Okeke paused his performance to raise funds for Osinachi’s children. The ‘Akanchawa’ singer invited friends and colleagues of the late singer to donate money for the children’s upkeep.

Frank Edwards and Mercy Chinwo also joined fans to light candles in memory of Osinachi.

Osinachi died on April 8 at the National Hospital in Abuja. She is alleged to have died from health complications following years of assault.

Popularly known for her hit song ‘Ekwueme’, Osinachi was a lead singer at the headquarters of Dunamis International Gospel Centre, Abuja. Her death has raised the consciousness of the reality of domestic violence.

She will be buried in her father’s compound on Saturday, June 25.
