Again, the Nigerian entertainment industry recorded another painful loss last Friday when the news of the sudden death of Taiwo Oshadipe, one of the singing duo of the popular Oshadipe Twins broke.
Even as many are still pained about the loss, their manager, Olu Akinsanya, who initially declined any comment on the incident due to shock, has revealed that the actress and singer might have died of complications arising from chest-related pains.

In an exclusive interview with The Nation, he said she was admitted at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, about a month ago and was given some medications.
According to him, “The illness wasn’t serious. She felt better when she started taking the drugs. But surprisingly, she suffered a relapse this week. On Wednesday, she called her doctor who treated her at LASUTH and was told to come over to his private hospital, as he wouldn’t be around at LASUTH until Friday.
“She went to the hospital, where the doctor carried out some medical checks on her and gave her some drugs. He also gave her an appointment for Friday. But unfortunately, in the early hours of the day, she started complaining of pains.
“This time, it was very severe; so, her twin sister, Kehinde, decided to rush her to LASUTH. However, upon reaching the hospital, she was confirmed dead. So, by 8.00a.m., Kehinde called me and I had to rush to LASUTH to see her for myself.
“It is still very shocking to me. I saw her on Wednesday and we talked and joked. We even talked about my forthcoming wedding. She promised to play at my wedding, so she asked me not to invite any other musician.
“The autopsy report will be out soon. But I know she had recovered from the illness. The last thing she complained about was the chest pain and that was what led to her death two days after.”
He further revealed that the twins lost their elder brother on the day of their album launch three years ago.
The Oshadipe Twins are known for playing contemporary, inspirational and gospel music. They shot into the limelight with the song, Dide Olorun Mi.
Since the news of her death broke, fans have been posting condolence messages on her Facebook page.
