Nigerian music singer, Oritsefemi’s ex-music group member, Chibudo ‘Chi Jungulist’ Obinkwo is dead.
The singer took to his Instagram page not long ago, to announce the death of his former music partner, who he said died after a long battle with an undisclosed ailment.
‘Brother you tried your best to fight it …jah knows better ….he’s bigger than everyone and no man can question him May your soul rest in perfect peace brother.’
In another post, Oritsefemi also blamed Junglist’s friends for not speaking out on time when he first took ill until it got serious.
He was a brave man …. he was the first to travel abroad among the both of us #china he was very talented, he know I love him ? he know I can take any shot on his behalf … he was so sick for so long, his so called new friends kept it on till when it got worse for him, that was when I was informed… and I sent money to them immediately to take him straight to the hospital… the so called friends told me the truth that my brother can not survive it anymore that he has to take him back to his mum ..
My problem is why they waited for this long… if y’all are true friends… no one can bring out money except me … nobody .. all of you guys should have contributed 1k each if you truly want him to survive, but I did my part am not super rich but have stood for so many people in this life, I took my fellow brothers problems first before facing my own.
There is no need to throw stones at anyone or throw blames! If I choose not to publicize how I help, doesn’t mean I don’t do my part! We can all be our brothers keepers.
No more comment from me!
Rest In Peace my brother, chibudo obinkwo.
The Ajegunle duo, Oritsefemi, and Chi Jungulist started out as ‘The Junglist Boys’ in 2006 before parting ways in 2006 to launch their individual solo careers.
