Most of her popular gospel songs were played during the burial ceremony.

Her husband Peter was not allowed to attend Osinachi's burial

Osinachi was alleged to have been a victim of domestic violence prior to her death.

Her death was linked to her husband, Peter Nwachukwu. He is standing trial before a Federal Capital Territory High Court.

Nwachukwu had denied subjecting the late singer to domestic violence. He claimed she died of lung cancer.

Despite his claims, the court had remanded him in Kuje Correctional Facility in Abuja. Osinachi's husband, Peter Nwachukwu, was absent at her burial.

The 42-year-old songstress was a lead singer at the Dunamis International Gospel Centre.

She featured in several popular gospel songs like “Nara Ekele” by Pastor Paul Enenche (Dunamis, Abuja) and “You no dey use me play” by Emma.

The singer, who shot into the limelight with the hit “Ekwueme“, viewed 74 million times on YouTube, died in an Abuja hospital on April 8.
