Asake “Devastated” As One Person Dies In The O2 Incident

Two other women remain in a critical condition following the tragic incident at Brixton Academy.

Rebecca Ikumelo, one of the injured people from Asake’s O2 show, passed away.Asake released a heartbreaking statement.

The singer was forced to cancel his December 15 show at the O2 Academy Brixton, which was sold out, halfway through because many fans who didn’t have tickets tried to force their way in.

After the crush at the London event, it was reported that eight people had been taken to the hospital, four of whom were in critical condition.

The singer released a statement earlier today, December 17, 2022, announcing the unfortunate death of Ikumelo, one of the injured.

The Metropolitan Police said Ikumelo, from Newham, east London, kicked the bucket in the clinic toward the beginning of today (December 17).

He wrote that he had been in touch with her family and offered his sympathies in Asake’s statement.

“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,” he wrote.

He continued: “I am overwhelmed with grief and could never have imagined anything like this happening. 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.”

Following the crowd crush, reports indicate that two additional women, aged 21 and 23, are currently fighting for their lives.

The police are right now exploring the episode and Asake encouraged anybody with applicable data connecting with the occurrence to contact the Metropolitan Police.

The Nigerian singer had performed three sold-out shows in Brixton, the third of which was aborted halfway through.
