- Kweku Baako is heartbroken he never appeared on KABA's show despite his numerous calls on him
- Mr Baako says KABA was a talented broadcaster and didn't deserve to die young
The Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has opened up about the death of ace broadcaster, Kwadwo Asare-Baffour Acheampong, aka KABA.
According to the veteran journalist, KABA invited him on several occassions to appear on his show for a discussion, but he kept postponing.
Mr Baako says KABA eventually became tired and made a special arrangement for him to send his contributions to the show through text messages.
Speaking on Peace FM in Accra, the Editor-in-Chief who was clearly heartbroken, disclosed that he simply could not fathom why death has laid his icy hands on such a young talented broadcaster.
“He calls me an absentee panelist; people didn’t understand why he often read my messages and so I had an arrangement with him to appear on his show and I kept postponing and so I failed him on that score,” he said.
Kweku Baako added that the death of KABA is a big blow to the Ghanaian media industry especially the Multimedia Group.
"It’s very painful but God knows best; too young to go and it just doesn’t make sense,” he said.
KABA was pronounced dead at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in the early hours of Saturday, November 18, after he was rushed for an emergency care.
Until his demise, KABA was the host of Asempa FM’s political talk show, ‘Ekosii Sen’.
The 37-year-old journalist left behind a wife, Valentina Ofori Afriyie and a seven month old baby.
