On 3 February 2014 Komla Dumor’s body was flown back to Ghana, where it was received at Kotoka International Airport by a group of family members, friends, government officials, sympathizers and members of the Aflao traditional council, who also performed some traditional rites, since Aflao was his hometown.
In life and even in death, Dumor was an inspiration to many, a clear example that there is no such thing as overnight success, but success was a sure thing with hard work and perseverance.
