Highlife artiste Jewel Ackah, who has been battling stroke and other sicknesses for the past 10 years has passed away.
Reports say his death occurred on Friday 27th April, 2018, in the evening.
Jewel Ackah was one of the many musicians who popularized highlife music in the 1980s and 1990s.
His sweet voice and enticing Fante Lyrics made him an exceptional artist. After years in the highlife scene, he found Christ and shifted to gospel music in the late 1990.
Some of his songs include ‘Asomdwoe Hene,’ ‘Jesus’, ‘Manye Yie,’ among others.
He is also the composer of the popular party anthem for the National Democratic Congress [NDC].
