R.I.P DAASEBRE GYAMENAH… May God pardon u!

I remember wen I first heard “Kokooko” by Daasebre ft Lord Kenya in da 90’s, I was young by then n didn’t know much about collaborations so I thought they joined 2 musicians’ songs by mistake anytime I hear it lol, then I finally watched the video n was like “Ah, how’s this possible?”.

Then my friend asked me who’s Lord Kenya n where’s he from, then cos of his name I told him, I think his father is a Kenyan that’s why he has Kenya n he’s a prophet or pastor himself cos of his Lord name (As if I knew he wud be a pastor in da future lol).

I still remember this funny moments wen I was a kid jux to find out he’s no more, I pray God give u a better place. It Scares me as he was alive sumtime n No More now, it means sometime to come it will be our turn to be No More, may God help us change from our sinful ways n worship Him well before that time comes… AMEN!”

Mortal remains of the late musician conveyed from the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital where he passed away has been sent to Koforidua and deposited at the St. JosephHospital Morgue.
