Ghanaian highlife artiste, Kofi Boakye Yiadom, popularly known as Kofi B, has passed away.
The famed musician reportedly passed away on Sunday dawn after he complained of not feeling too well.
Reports suggest that Kofi B suffered a heart complication.
He was unfortunately pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
A colleague musician, Kofi Nti said the two were in the Central Region to perform at a function for a chief at Abaase Domenase in the Central Region when the incident occurred.
“I knew he was not well before we embarked on a journey to Abaase Domenase in the Central Region. I have always known that Kofi B had high blood pressure but I didn’t know how intense it had become… I was still sleepy until I heard a big knock again that he couldn’t help it so I woke up and rushed him to a nearby hospital in his own car that we drove in together to this place. When we got to the hospital, I had to carry him to see the doctor but I was told he died before we got to the hospital,” he said.
Kofi B’s last major performance was at Citi FM’s Music of Ghanaian Origin (MOGO) concert in April 2019 at the National Theatre.
Kofi B came to the spotlight with his solemn and thought-provoking hit song, ‘Mmobrowa.”
Kofi B’s other popular songs include Twa me keke, Mmobrowa , Belinda, Akua Ataa, Bantama Kofi Boakye, Koforidua Flowers, among others.
