Prior to his death, Omanhene Pozo was admission at the Neuro Surgical Ward of the 37 Military Hospital, awaiting money to enable him undergo surgery. This prompted Mark Darlington aka Mark Osae, an artiste manager, to launched an online campaign to help raise £5,000 for hiplife musician.

The who campaign raised just £250 according to the page, which is a measly 8% of the total amount needed for the surgery.

Mark, however, kept giving updates about the rapper's condition on the page. 5 months before Omanhene Pozo's passing, Mark had posted an update which read, "Surgery has been successful after raising part of the costs! Outstanding costs however, still need to be offset".

This suggested that the rapper had successfully gained a better health status. But subsequent updates from Mark showed that despite Pozo getting better, he had lost mobility and his speech was impaired.

That update, from four months ago, was the last on Pozo's health until his death.

However, according to Barima Sydney, Omanhene Pozo died from infections in his brain.

The former vibrant ‘Nananom’ group was led by Barima Sidney. Other members of the group included Omanhene Pozo and Jyoti Chandler.
