Anokye Supremo died in India on January 30, 2019, following complications that arose from a brain tumour surgery.
The artiste had been in a coma for some days since the operation with surgeons hoping he was going to revive as soon as possible.
But according to Zak, his friend and manager who was looking after him in India, the highlife musician had been recovering well but suffered a relapse.
Anokye had been struggling to see especially with his left eye and this according to him started after he experienced a severe headache.
Doctors had told him he will need about GHC 10,000 to have that surgery. He thus asked Ghanaians to support him in raising money to foot the surgery.
Born Emmanuel Baffoe Anokye, Supremo's resemblance to legendary musician, Daddy Lumba, had earned him the nickname Daddy Lumba Junior.
He was 33 years old. Though unmarried, Anokye left behind one daughter.
The burial and funeral of Anokye closes the chapter on what could be described as a painful exit by the artiste from from this world.
