Instagram and Twitter users have mourned her while posting tributes.

Below is a statement from her sister explaining how she died.

“A lot of people have been asking “what happened to Gbunu” I’ll explain… She battled with a heart condition which led to heart failure for 3yrs. She fought and she was positive that she could beat the condition. It only got wore and she was confined to a wheelchair.

“She was constantly in pains from the numerous drips and injections and often times she had to be put on oxygen because she couldn’t breathe on her own. She was given hope when we were told that she could get an implant (heart peace maker surgery) done to ease the strain on her heart but that had to be after the lockdown.

“The end of the lockdown never came for Gbunu. Gbunu started to hint of how tired she was of the constant pain.”
