Singer Slim Joe dies of kidney disease

Slim Joe had begged for support in raising N15million for his surgery.

Nigerian singer and entertainer, Joshua Olonitan popularly known as Slim Joe is dead.

The 30-year-old ‘O ti yanyan’ crooner whose hit song dominated the airwaves in 2009, died Sunday after a prolonged battle with kidney disease.

The versatile entertainer, who hailed from Odo-Ayedun in Ikole Local Government Area of Ekiti State, in May 2021 asked well-meaning Nigerians for help.

Slim Joe had begged for support to raise N15 million for his surgery.

The surgery, he said, would help him rise to his feet again after he was diagnosed with kidney failure and had been on dialysis for some time.

His death was confirmed by his colleague, Raymond Gbaji, via a Facebook post, where he penned a touching tribute to him.
