Multiple award-winning Ghanaian-South African singer, Adina Thembi, has stirred emotions on social media with a video of her crying at JJ Rawlings's state funeral.
In a video posted on YEN.com.gh's Facebook page, the singer who was performing at a vigil held in honour of former president Jerry John Rawlings could not control her emotions.
While singing Bryan Adams' popular Everything I Do, Adina turned away from the camera to wipe her tears.
There were intermittent breaks in her song owing to the fact that her emotions had gotten the better part of her as she cried over the death of the former president.
Adina was seen wearing a glittering black dress and sported a perm cut which she has dyed blonde.
She was one of the performers at the vigil and took to the stage to entertain patrons at the state funeral, but she was unable to hold back her sorrow over the passing of JJ Rawlings.
Still on the funeral, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that some sad photos from the state funeral being held in honour of Ghana's former president Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings popped up on social media.
The photos showed the simple casket in which the former Ghanaian president was laid in state for public viewing.
In photos sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, the former head of state was placed in a white-looking casket covered with a huge transparent glass.
Also, a 52-year-old woman who claims to be called Abigail Rawlings has said that she is the daughter of late former president of Ghana Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings.
In a new video sighted on YouTube, the mature woman spoke passionately about her being the child of the late former president of Ghana.
According to her, her mother who is a Togolese is deceased, but before her death, she told her Rawlings was her father.
Madam Abigail Rawlings added that many of former president Rawlings's maternal relatives in their hometown know her and have accepted her into the family.
