Evelyn Adewunmi, also known as MC Eve, a rising Nigerian event host, was killed in a car accident in Lagos.
On Tuesday, October 12th, MC Eve was believed to have been in a car with her lover when they were involved in an accident that took her life.
Her boyfriend, who was driving the car, was unharmed and was transferred to a nearby hospital, but she did not survive.
Months ago, the youthful star hosted Toyin Lawani’s wedding and has collaborated with a number of Nigerian celebrities.
Colleagues, acquaintances, and celebrities have expressed their sorrow on social media.
Mercy Aigbe, a Nollywood actress, posted a video of herself and Eve at Toyin Lawani’s wedding and captioned it, “So heartbreaking, utterly surprising!” Evelyn, rest in peace.”
Toyin Lawani has also paid respect to Eve, who is affectionately known as ‘The Energy Goddess,’ on her official Instagram page.
