Akosua Agyapong stated the first hospital he was transported to in Achimota did not pay attention to him in an exclusive interview with Adom TV at Nana Ampadu’s family house.
When the ailing artist arrived at the hospital on Tuesday morning, she was told the doctor was asleep, so he had to be transported to the University of Ghana Medical Centre in Legon, where doctors did their best, but he eventually passed away.
The ambulance didn’t get here early. We went to the Achimota hospital and we were informed that the doctor has slept. So when he was taken to the new hospital at Legon, the doctors tried all they could but he couldn’t survive.
The Eka Bi Nie hitmaker described his death as a “huge loss” to her because “losing him is not a joke.”
Nana Ampadu was the one who persuaded Akosua Agyapong’s mother to let her pursue music in several of her interviews.
Meanwhile, some family members were in question over the death of their loved one during an earlier appearance on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, but Akosua Agyapong has cleared the air, revealing the music great has passed away.
She went on to share some of her favorite recollections of the musician and encouraged colleagues to mimic his writing style because the majority of his songs are timeless.
Good songs should be written by musicians. Tunes like “Obra” and “Agartha” are timeless, and he enjoys writing timeless songs… On Otumfuo’s birthday, I recall doing a song with him, and it was beautiful.
She remembers how he strived to love everyone equally and did not discriminate.
