How did Nicole Thea die?

Nicole’s mother announced the tragic news in an Instagram post on the YouTuber’s page, though she did not reveal the cause of death. 

The statement 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.” 

Nicole’s boyfriend and father of her child, Global Boga, gave the go-ahead to have her previously scheduled videos released on YouTube following her tragic passing.

“Also Nicole pre-schedule a few YouTube videos and Boga has made the decision to allow them to be aired,” the statement continued. “As a family we ask that you give us privacy because our hearts are truly broken and we are struggling to cope with what has happened. Thank you her mum RIP My beautiful baby girl Nicnac and my grandson Reign, I will miss you for the rest of my life until we meet again in eternal heaven.”

It is unclear as to what caused Nicole’s sudden and untimely passing. While the family has asked for privacy during this unthinkable time, fans are also struggling with the heartbreaking news.

“Nicole you will always be in my heart and prayers. I pray that God provides your family with healing and comfort during this time. This honestly hits so different but I know how strong you are. God bless you sis,” one fan wrote.
