Had Islamic methods been applied, the late contemporary highlife singer, Daasebre Gyamenah would have been buried quite a while ago.
However, the refusal of his family to bury him has led to other conflicts of interest.
It has emerged that the maternal family of Daasebreh has rejected the decision of his paternal family to bury him at Koforidua in the Eastern region.
The kinsmen from Anomaabo Ndasimaam in the Central region claim, they are entitled to bury the late musician in accordance with the Akan matrilineal tradition.
The late musician died on Friday, July 29, 2016, while on admission at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) in Accra. But his paternal family objected to the decision to bury him buried in line with Islamic tradition laws.
They argued that the Kokooko hit maker, although was a Muslim, will not be buried in line with Islamic tradition because he was a royal from the New Juaben Traditional Area.
The mortal remains of highlife musician Daasebre Gyamenah is to be laid to rest on October 14 in Koforidua. But the group from the Aduana Abrodzi family in the Central region stormed Daasebre Gyamenah’s family house at Koforidua Wednesday August 24, 2016 for his body.
Leader of the delegation, Nana Kwaku Appah in an interview with Adom News threatened to place an injunction on the burial if their plea is rejected. He maintained that Daasebere Gyamenah as a royal from the Central region should be buried as custom demands.
Nana Kwaku Appah has given his father’s family in Koforidua a week ultimatum to release the body or meet him in court.
