The final funeral rites of legendary highlife musician, Kofi Boakye Yiadom, popularly known as Kofi B, is currently underway.
The 45-year-old late singer has been laid in state at the Agogo Presbyterian Park at Asante Akyem in the Ashanti region.
Videos from the funeral grounds captured family members and sympathisers struggle with tears as they file past the body.
While all the tributes to the late singer were emotional, that of his children was even more heartbreaking.
In a video sighted by Ghsplash.com, the children were seen standing behind the makeshift pulpit with their father’s coffin in the middle of the Agogo Presby Park where the funeral is being held.
Reading the tribute on behalf of the seven children of the late singer, the eldest child said:
“We don’t have a daddy anymore. We are now fatherless and our lives and future depend on only God almighty. Daddy, damirifa due! Due ne amanehunu,” she said while mentioning the names of all of the children.
The ‘Mmobrowa’ singer passed in February 2020, after complaining of chest pains and unusual heartbeat.
Reports indicated Kofi B was sweating and vomiting when he was rushed to the hospital prior to a concert in Cape Coast.
The ‘Bantama Kofi Boakye’ hitmaker was restless with very high body temperature and an unusual blood pressure, the doctor said.
Since he had difficulty breathing, he was put on oxygen and given some injections but he died at 3:am on Sunday.
