It’s been over three years since hiplife artiste Castro the Destroyer went missing during a cruise on a jet ski at Ada but Ghanaians are sticking to the law to wait 7 years and 7 days before declaring he is dead.
Now, legendary music producer Hammer of The Last 2 has asked Ghanaians to get out of the big baby diapers and accept once and for all that Castro is dead and do the right thing by giving him a befitting burial.
Hammer, real name Edward Nana Poku Osei in an interview with Hitz FM’s MzGee expressed his unhappiness about how Ghanaians had downplayed the loss of one of Ghana’s hiplife gurus and not doing the right thing by sending him off with dignity.
“Its been years and nobody seems to remember him. He’s not in our lives, he’s not in our daily communication but he’s forgotten. This guy played a major role in our industry but the technicalities that bind us is causing this,” he said.
He went on to blame the family of Castro for not accepting his demise to allow Ghanaians mourn him.
“I know the family has the power to veto and go ahead to say they accept his demise and they want to give him a befitting memorial. It hurts me,” Hammer told MzGee.
Hammer, who groomed artistes like Sarkodie, Kwaw Kese and many others think Castro should be immortalized.
“We have to immortalize him by doing something about his name. We need an event to bid him farewell. We haven’t said goodbye to him and he is just hanging around. He’s name is just disrespected and forgotten as if he did not do anything in the industry,” he lamented.
Ghanaians were greeted with the heartrending news on July 6, 2014 that hip-life musician Castro and a lady friend, Janet Bandu, had both gone missing while cruising on a jet ski on the Volta Lake at Ada.
The suspicion of most people is that the pair drowned but bodies were never recovered till date.
