Barely a year after Lagos Socialite, Nike Shonibare died of breast cancer, another society lady Ebugewa Rewane, one of the daughters of late Alfred Rewane has also lost the battle to the deadly disease. She died on 31st of May, 2012 in her Lagos residence. Sources confirmed Ebugewa, a trained Lawyer popularly called Bugsey, had been battling with the disease for over 1 year but she reportedly met her untimely death when the pains struck her brain.
