The family and friends of late British dancer Nicole honored her nearly three weeks after her tragic death with a balloon release ceremony on what would have been her 25th birthday.


Nicole Thea's family and friends are still dealing with the grief of losing the bubbly YouTube sensation but they took out time to honor her on what should have been her 25th birthday.

On Wednesday, July 29, Thea's boyfriend, Global Boga who was expecting a child with the YouTube star before her untimely death, took to his Instagram page to share a picture and several videos showing a balloon release ceremony held in her honor.

In the picture, Boga can be seen being consoled by a group of friends. The musician was shirtless and had his back to the camera showing off a freshly tattooed image of Thea on his back with the words "Make it Reign."

Boga also shared a video that captured the touching moment family and friends dressed in all-white outfits released the balloons into the air. He shared the video alongside the caption,

"Baby girl my Shawty, my Queen. I have a lot to say, a lot on my mind & no one on this planet can understand what I am going through in my life. The pain can't be explained."


Thea's sudden death was devastating for her loved ones. And it was a double tragedy for Boga with the added loss of his unborn son whom he and Thea had agreed to name Reign.

The late dancer's mom, Samantha Antoine also paid tribute to her daughter on Instagram. In a heart-wrenching message, she talked about the pain she was suffering and revealed how proud she was of her daughter.

In the weeks leading up to her death, she spoke about how she was having difficulty breathing and felt like she was dying.


Thea's family also released a statement thanking everyone for the outpouring of love and support in the past few days. They asked that the public respect their privacy during their time of grief.

Meanwhile, Thea's cause of death has yet to be announced by the family. However, it is believed that she suffered a massive heart attack. While speaking to MailOnline, Thea's uncle, Charles Murray said,

"From what I heard at the moment, we think she had a massive heart attack."


Murray also revealed she had no underlying health issues and confirmed that an autopsy was being done to ascertain the actual cause of the death of his niece.

Before her death, Thea was already eight months gone and was looking forward to welcoming her son with her partner Boga.


She regularly shared her pregnancy journey with her 160,000 Instagram followers and nearly 90,000 YouTube subscribers. In the weeks leading up to her death, she spoke about how she was having difficulty breathing and felt like she was dying.

Sadly, Thea never got the opportunity to embrace her baby boy whom she carried for eight months. Her death was a painful loss to her fans and family who swear they will carry on her legacy.
