It was an emotional day on Saturday, June 25 at the burial of gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu.
Osinachi, who died on April 8 at the National Hospital, Abuja was buried at Amakpoke Umuaku Isuochi in Umunneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.
One of the highlights of the ceremony was Osinachi’s twin sister Amarachi Ume’s performance at the burial. The bereaved sister sang some of their songs from Glorious Singers, a music group the late singer and her twin belonged to before she died.
Dressed in an all-white outfit, Amara could be seen crying as she sang for her sister, other guests were also captured shedding tears as they watched her perform.
Amarachi said Osinachi fought a great battle but God finally called her home.
While reading Osinachi’s biography Amarachi said Osinachi believed her husband Peter Nwachukwu who has been accused of killing her would change.
She said: “Osinachi Nwachukwu got hooked into marriage with Peter Nwachukwu, which was consummated on the 31st of August, 2008.
“Her death occurred on the 8th of April, 2022, and is still under police investigation due to the alleged domestic violence against her by Peter Nwachukwu.
“Even before her death, all efforts were made to pull Osinachi out, but she believed that Peter would change”.
A 23-count charge against Mr Nwachukwu is currently before the FCT High Court.
A member of the House of Representatives Nkeiru Onyejeocha (Isukwuato/Umunnechi) presented to the family the certificate of incorporation of Osinachi’s foundation.
“Unfortunately, she had to pass through what she passed through before she died. She is God’s own daughter and now singing for the angels and for her family,” Onyejeocha said.
The lawmaker promised scholarships to Osinachi’s four children.
