One out of the four victims who were critically injured at Asake’s London concert has given up the ghost at age 33.
Mid-way through Asake’s performance at the O2 Academy arena, Brixton, Thursday night, organisers announced that they had to stop the show as the doors had been breached, creating pandemonium.
According to reports, eight people were injured, four of which were in critical condition and were being treated in a hospital.
However, in a sad occurrence, Asake announced that Rebecca Ikumelo, one of those being treated in the hospital, had died.
According to reports, a postmortem will be carried out for the late Ms Rebecca, while two other women, aged 21 and 33, remain in critical condition.
“I am devastated by the news that Rebecca Ikumelo, who was in a critical condition since Thursday, has sadly passed away.
“My sincerest condolences to her loved ones at this time. Let us, please, keep her family in our prayers. I have spoken to them and will continue to do so.
“My team and I are still awaiting the full debrief back from the venue management and the Police to determine what exactly led to all the disruption caused and ultimately to Rebecca’s passing.
“If you have any relevant information relating to this, please do reach out to the Metropolitan Police,” the singer wrote on Twitter.
Rebecca Ikumelo was a single mother of two boys. She is known on TikTok for speaking about autism, and sharing stories about her autistic son.
Recent videos on her page show them setting up their Christmas tree. Sadly, she didn’t make it to Christmas.
May her soul rest in peace.
