Tobi has mourned his colleague Rico Swavey who succumbed to the cold hands of death hours ago following a ghastly accident.
After hearing that the reality star had been in a horrifying car accident on Tuesday, the reality star’s admirers and well-wishers were shrouded in sadness.
Several well-known BBNaija stars initiated a fundraising campaign for Rico after learning that he had been hospitalized and was being kept alive by a machine.
The reality star sadly passed away, as word of his death has been made public.
Tobi posted a picture of himself and the late star on social media, laughing heartily and saying that he will always remember their amusing moment together.
Before his death, Nigerian entertainers launched a fundraiser for Rico Swavey whose real name is Patrick Fakoya, following his involvement in a car crash.
His fellow BBNaija ex-housemate, Tobi Bakre, made the announcement on his Twitter page on Wednesday, as he asked the public for donations.
Sharing a picture of the hospitalised Rico Swavey on his Twitter page, Bakre also noted that the accident victim had been placed on life support.
Bakre tweeted, “Please help save Rico. He had a really bad car accident.
“We have to keep him on life support and continue to pay the rising medical bills while we pray for God’s miracle.
“(We) can’t do it alone. Please click on the link to donate at ricoswavey.com.”
Reality TV star, Alex Asogwa aka Alex Unusual, who had shared the news about the accident on her Twitter page on Tuesday, also called for donations.
She wrote on her Instagram page on Wednesday, “I wish I didn’t have to post this but my friend is in a critical condition and we are in need of your financial assistance and prayers.
“I also wish I could give more information on his health but how can I when we are still waiting for the doctors and God to save this dear life or at least get a sign or response from Rico?
“Whatever you can do to support will be highly appreciated as he is on life support and fighting for his life. Please, @ricoswavey_official needs our help #ricoswavey #prayforricoswavey”
On Wednesday, Rico Swavey’s management announced that he was on life support in the hospital.
