“We all miss u BIG JUGGAH! We shall do our best still to make sure the world sees you! We pray the ancestors give solace to your wife and daughter and your inconsolable parents.
“Juggernaut the amazing is forever with us. The whole neighborhood came out to show respects to you men, and that’s all the validation we need!! Love u men. Till we meet again.”
A joint statement by Five Music Group and Black Haus Entertainment revealed the circumstances that led to the death of the rapper.

The statement read. “Jugger, as he was fondly called by those very close to him in the music industry, attended Corona Nursery and Primary School, Gbagada; King’s College, Lagos; got admitted to Babcock University but attained a Bachelors of Art at Evangel Christian School of America.
"He started out his music career as a member and the only rapper in a group of three called the Triple X Entertainment; the other two members being May D (Moyukun Awodunmila) and Faloads (Femi Falode). In August, he released his “Retouch Your Swag” single which premiered on Cloud9.
"He died in the early hours of Sunday, 30th September, 2018, after his car crashed into a trailer with no backlights, emitting smoke from its exhaust thus reducing visibility.
