Photos and videos from the Service of Songs and Night of Tribute for BBNaija star, Rico Swavey
On Wednesday evening, October 19, a singing service and tribute night for late reality TV personality Rico Swavey were conducted. The ceremony, conducted in memory of the Big Brother Naija star who died as a result of injuries incurred in a terrible vehicle accident, was held in Victoria Island, Lagos, and was well attended by his colleagues. BB Alex, Dorathy Bachor, Kbrule, Cross, Phyna, Bella, and the show’s host, Ebuka, were among those that attended the event.
Meanwhile, BBNaija celebs who attended Rico’s song service were dragged by Nigerians shortly after the ceremony for drinking. Dorathy, a Big Brother Naija contestant, took to Twitter to share a video of herself and her fellow contestants singing, presumably smoking, and holding up their glasses to ‘celebrate Rico’s life,’ which sparked debate on the microblogging website.
Reacting a Twitter user, Muyiwa wrote, “That guy was 29, he died few days to his birthday. You guys couldn’t even be sober at his candle light service. Any excuse just to flex and post for the gram. It’s so insensitive to be singing that forever young song too, Rico didn’t want to live forever young? Disgraceful”.
