Lagbaja’s backing vocalist, Ego, a well-known Nigerian musician, has lost her husband to the cold, cruel grip of death.
According to Nigerian journalist Chris Kehinde, Ogbaro died on Wednesday in the US.
He captioned a photo of the couple that he shared on Instagram on Thursday with the words: “Ohh No Victor Niyi Ogbaro this can’t be true. According to what I’ve learned, Ego’s husband Victor passed away today.”
Nwakaego Iheanacho whose stage name is Ego, married Ogbaro in 2009 but they had to go their seperate ways for a time.
Before her husband passed away, Ego blocked Ogbaro from her social media accounts, which fueled rumors that their marriage was having problems.

With the debut of the Nigerian Telenovela series “Wura” on January 26th, streaming service Showmax achieved yet another first.
‘Wura’ is a 200-episode Nigerian telenovela series that chronicles the exploits of a ruthless and ambitious CEO of the gold mining sector who will do anything to defend her business and the people she cares about.
It is managed by Wura-Amoo Adeleke, a devoted mother of two and a wonderful wife who also happens to be the merciless CEO of the made-up “Frontline Gold Mine.”
The show is expected to surpass all other Nigerian telenovelas in terms of duration.
The series stars both established actors and up-and-coming talent, including Scarlett Gomez as Wura Amoo-Adeleke, Yomi Fash-Lanso as Anthony Amoo-Adeleke, and Nollywood veteran Carol King as Grace Adeleke.
Ray Adeka, who plays Jejeloye “Jeje” Amoo, Iremide Adeoye, who plays Lolu Adeleke, Ego Iheanacho, who plays Iyabo Kuti, Martha Ehinome, who plays Tumininu “Tumi” Kuti, and Lanre Adediwura, who plays Olumide Kuti are the other cast members.
Ego Obaro, Yomi Fash, and Scarlet Gomez recounted their experiences on the film set and provided insight into their performances in an exclusive conversation with PREMIUM TIMES.
Ego is the stage name of Nigerian singer-songwriter Nwakaego Ihenacho Ogbaro. “Konko Below,” “Nothing for You,” and “Never Far Away” are a few tracks by Ego.
The singer, who gained notoriety for her collaborations with Lagbaja and his band, discussed her decision to play Iyabo Kuti in Wura.
She also admitted that she had no involvement in creating the soundtrack for the film.
Ego founded the Indigo band after leaving Africano in 2007 to focus on a solo career. Sunny Nneji, Djinee, Tosin Martins, Ayanbirin, and Blaise are among the musicians she has worked with since leaving Lagbaja’s band.
