A music festival in Nigeria has been cancelled following the death of headline act Goldie Harvey.

The R&B artist, 31, lost her life on 14 February (13) at a hospital in Lagos, Nigeria, just days after attending the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.

She had been due to perform at the 15th Annual Kennis Music Easter Fiesta, which is organised by bosses at her Kennis Music record label, but executives have now called off the April (13) event in light of her unexpected death.

They are now planning to put together a tribute concert in her memory to replace the festival.

A statement from Kennis Music reads, "Due to the loss of our dear... Goldie Harvey, the management has decided not to celebrate this year's event. The festival is hereby cancelled for 2013. However, you can join us for a Thanksgiving service/Tribute Concert to be held at a later date. Thank you for your understanding."

The festival was scheduled to kick off on 6 April (13).
