The statement shared on Sunday, July 12, read:
To all Nicole’s friends and supporters it is with great sadness that I have to inform you that Nicole and her son she and Boga named Reign sadly passed away on Saturday morning.

Following the news of her death, people have speculated whether it was due to child birth; it’s believed Nicole was around eight months pregnant at the time of her death.
Nicole had previously spoken about the difficulties she faced during pregnancy in a YouTube video shared earlier this month.
Speaking about one experience in particular, she said:
My friends were round my house, right, and I was trying to kill a fly so I was really active after I had the spicy food. I’m there trying to knock it on the wall […], walked up the stairs and I was like, ‘Guys, I’m gonna’ vomit. I know I’m gonna’ vomit.’
I’m active but I can just feel pain; I could feel it coming and coming. Literally ten minutes later I’m [makes retching noise] and I said ‘Can you get Boga?’ […] He ran in and starting rubbing my back. He knows what to do. He’s so good. The girls were literally scared.
However, despite difficulties she may have had during the pregnancy, her death wasn’t child birth related, Metro reports.
Nicole had previously gushed about her boyfriend Global Boga calling him the ‘best support ever’ and stated that ‘God made no mistakes making him the father.’ The pair were going to name their unborn son Reign.
Following the tragic news of Nicole’s sudden death, the family have asked for privacy during this difficult time.
