Starlitenews reports that a former popular Big Brother Naija Housemate, Patrick Fakoya better known as Rico Swavey is dead.
It is understood the reality star, actor and singer was involved in a ghastly car crash in the early hours of Tuesday at the Abraham Adesanya junction, Ajah and was receiving treatment at the ICU of EverCare Hospital Lekki.
Nigerian entertainers launched a fundraiser for Swavey on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. His fellow BBNaija ex-housemate, Tobi Bakre, made the announcement on his Twitter page on Wednesday, as he asked the public for donations.
Unfortunately, barely 24 hours after the donation was announced, another former BBNaija Housemate, Neo Mobor Akpofure, announced on the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Thursday morning, October 13, that Rico Swavey is dead.
The former BBNaija Housemate tweeted: “Rest in peace Rico, this is a hard pill to swallow. Damn”.
Rest in peace Rico, this is a hard pill to swallow. Damn 💔🕯#RipSwavey
