Musician Zara Gretti Passes On at 28

 

Zara Gretti - March 2014 - BN Music - BellaNaija 01
Nigerian-American singer Zara Gretti is dead.
Zara whose real name is  Margaret-Mary Joseph is known for her hit songs including “The Flyest” and “Teno”.
In the past, she was open about her battle with multiple sclerosis. The Mayo Clinic defines Multiple sclerosis (MS) as “a potentially debilitating disease in which your body’s immune system eats away at the protective sheath (myelin) that covers your nerves. Damage to myelin causes interference in the communication between your brain, spinal cord and other areas of your body. This condition may result in deterioration of the nerves themselves, a process that’s not reversible.”
Zara is believed to have died today. The family isn’t releasing a statement on her death yet but her former manager confirms the tragic news.
