She explained that his son was a famous person hence she would love others to pay their last respects in order to bid him a befitting farewell.
Why would I bury him in a private ceremony? When the sickness came, people weren’t allowed to open caskets so I couldn’t allow him to be buried. He is a famous man and I thought It right to hold on to bury him after the Coronavirus period.
I want all his followers to know he is not buried. I urge people … I know he isn’t the only dead person in the world but they should help me so we can bury him for a better afterlife, she said.
Kofi B’s stepfather, Opanyin Kwasi Adei confirmed the wife’s comments, saying the Koforidua Flowers hitmaker was still at the morgue.
He hasn’t been buried; I beg Ghanaians to ignore the rumours, he said.
He also touched on rumours that the family had disagreements with some of the industry players concerning the burial of their beloved son.
If the family has done anything that caused them to get angry, we plead with them to forgive and support us. I pray we all unite so we can bury him in peace, he said.
