Tagbo Umeike whose death generated a lot of controversy about the circumstances surrounding his death has been buried. He was buried on Friday in his hometown in Anambra State but he supposed close friend, David Adeleke more popularly known as Davido, was conspicuously absent at the burial ceremony and did not send a representative to honour someone he called a close friend, in death. Davido however found time to visit the crown prince of Benin Kingdom shortly before his show in the city.

According to late Tagbo Umeike’s brother, Chigbo, “Although my brother’s life was cut short unexpectedly, his burial went according to plan. I would miss my brother a lot because he had a big heart. He was not only my brother but a lot of people’s brother as well. Through my late brother, I have made a lot of friends turned brother and despite his death, I hope to still keep these wonderful people as my brothers. My sister in the UK came down for the burial. For now, we just finished burying my brother and we would want the dust to settle,” Chigbo said.

Tagbo allegedly died of alcohol abuse on his birthday sometime this month.
