“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”, he said in a radio interview on Accra based Peace FM on Sunday morning.
According to him, the two were booked for a birthday bash for a chief at Abaase Domenase today, Sunday February 2.
He explained that they lodged in a hotel in the town ready to play the show only for Kofi B to bang on his door around 2:30 am that he was not feeling too good.
“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.
“As we speak now, Kofi B is no more and his remains are at the mortuary where they refer to as the cold room here”, he said.
He explained that they are yet to inform the family members as to what should be done.
“I am sure the family members will love to do an autopsy to find out what actually killed their loved one.
“The sad news is that Kofi B died at dawn today [February 2, 2020]. He is no more and I am really going to miss him because he was more than a brother to me” he said.
