Slami Ifeanyi, a former Mr. Universe, singer, and actor, has been shot dead by unknown gunmen in Umubere in Akwa, capital of Anambra State on Sunday morning.
The 31-year-old songwriter was said to be driving in his newly acquired vehicle when he was attacked and killed.
Speaking about the incident, one of his fans reportedly said: “He was driving his new car which he bought just two weeks ago when it happened. Although we don’t know why he was attacked it looks like a targeted attack.”
Slami was a Nigerian music artist who was known for his extraordinary sound, a mixture of Afro Pop, High life & RnB, which he used to entertain his fans.
Apart from singing, Slami was a model, actor, and founder of the SLAMI EMPIRE, which organized ANAMBRA GOT TALENTS.
His death has continued to generate reactions on social media, especially on Facebook.
One Chijioke Okanmelu said: “I’m speechless when I got the news of your death, Ifeanyi. But, I still don’t believe it because this was not what we discussed on the phone.”
“This again tore me apart. The dude was my man from way back. He was hardworking, focused, talented, and handsome. And today, I heard you’re gone,” Nwanya Bernard said.
