Veteran highlife artist, Okuraseni Samuel has asked Ghanaians to give the late Kofi Boakye Yiadom known as Kofi B a state burial.
Okuraseni Samuel indicated that if Ebony who had a short span in Ghana music got a state burial then a highlife icon like Kofi B must also get one.
“If Ebony who had a short music life span had a state burial, then he thinks the late Kofi B also should have a suitable state burial.”
Kofi B spent almost 2 decades in the Ghana music industry before his unfortunate death in February 2020.
According to Okuraseni Samuel, Kofi B is a music legend and he deserves to be celebrated just like Ebony was.
“If a Member of Parliament even dies after one year in power, he is given a state burial so why shouldn’t Kofi B who brought to light highlife music also be given a state burial?” he asked.
He concluded that Kofi B was not only a music legend but his career benefited a lot of Ghanaians and the entire nation.
“Kofi was not just a legend or musician in his hometown but his career was a benefit to the entire nation.” Okuraseni concluded.
Kofi Boakye Yiadom popularly known as Kofi B died on February 2, 2020 after he reportedly suffered a heart failure.
