The ‘Bantama Kofi Boakye’ hitmaker, died in the Central Region in the early hours of Sunday, February 2, 2020 after complaining of chest pain.
His funeral was earlier slated for March 28 however, due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the final funeral rites had to be put on hold.
Mother of the deceased, Maame Afia Achiaa speaking exclusively to Salt FM’s Ibrahim Opoku aka Mayor 1 said the COVID-19 pandemic had affected earlier plans to bury the musician in March.
“We had to postpone the funeral because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions that were imposed on the country. We wanted to give everyone who loved our son the opportunity to say goodbye to him that is why we did not bury him during the period where only few people could be allowed to attend social gatherings”
“The family met and we have now decided to bury him on November 7. We are therefore calling for support from the general public.”, she said
Kofi B is widely acclaimed and well known for hit songs like Mmbrowa, Bantama Kofi Boakye, Koforidua Flowers and many more.
