- The University student says her heart is broken by the death of the ace broadcaster, KABA
- She says she has lost a great and irreplaceable friend who was always there to support her
The sudden demise of Ghanaian broadcaster, Kwadwo Asare Baffour Acheampong aka KABA has left many hearts broken.
The journalist whose death has stunned the nation was not only a gem behind the microphone but also a very kind person.
According to a close friend who identified herself as Ama Oforiwaa Nyarko, KABA’s level of humility and generosity is something she cannot measure to any length.
Oforiwaa who is set to graduate from Central University College with an MBA in an interview with Adom FM, said KABA personally contributed financially in helping her pay for her tuition fees in her entire programme.
The MBA student revealed that she spoke to KABA two days earlier where he promised to attend her graduation only to hear of his death the next day in the news.
“KABA’s death is indeed a big blow to my heart and I can’t stand it anymore. He actually helped me to pay my fees for my years in school. I remember one thing he always says is that I shouldn’t disappoint him: and I am not going to disappoint him,” Ama Oforiwa said.
Ama also added that Kwadwo Asare never gave up on her, even at the point when she almost lost hope, but rather impacted her life positively.
“KABA was always positive and any time I told him about any challenges he was always there for me. I have indeed lost a friend and a good counsel,” she said.
The respected media practitioner was reported dead early hours of Saturday after he was rushed to the Korle-bu teaching hospital following a short ailment.
Some unconfirmed reports attributed his demise to high sugar level. However, an official autopsy report is yet to be released by the hospital to ascertain the cause of his death.
Meanwhile, dozens of emotional tributes across the political divide; government officials, media fraternity as well as individuals are pouring in for the late Multimedia journalist.
