His cousin, Zuby Udezue, who opened a GoFundMe account on his behalf said the ailment was diagnosed in July 2018. He also added that Biglo has been undergoing dialysis three times weekly since January.


Udezue, a UK-based rapper, also added that Biglo had three surgeries and was trying to raise £50,000; about N23 million. Meanwhile, as of 29th August, Udezue said over $25,000 was raised.  All the funds were also transferred to the late rapper.


Biglo shot into the limelight in 2004 with the hit “Delicious” which featured 2shotz. The track earned him a Hip Hop World Award for Best Rap Collabo. However, the chubby rapper went underground after the buzz died down.
