The family of the late Highlife musician, Kofi B, has warned the public to desist from using his name for money ahead of his funeral slated for November 6 to 8, 2020.
The funeral will be held at his hometown, Asante Akyem Agogo on November 7, 2020 and thanksgiving service follows on Sunday, November 8 at the same location.
The family, represented by the uncle, Kwame Addo, says it would not sit idly and watch some unscrupulous people profiteer with the death and funeral of their son.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghanacelebrities.com.
According to the uncle, some people went on to produce items branded in the name and image of their son for sale during the observance of his one-week memorial.
This, he said, made the family so angry that it would not tolerate it if the same should happen during Kofi B’s funeral.
He added that anyone who flouts this rule and enriches himself with the funeral will be made to face the full rigours of the law.
Meanwhile, Kofi B, known in real life as Kofi Boakye Yiadom, died on February 2, 2020, following a sudden heart attack in Cape Coast, where he had gone to perform. He was rushed to the hospital by his friend and colleague musician Kofi Nti.
In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, the account as narrated by Kofi B’s best friend as to how he died was published.
We also published the identities of all the six children he had before his death. It was sad when it was discovered that Kofi B died on the birthday of one of his children.
His brother also narrated how Kofi B was shot in his dream before he died.
