Africa’s Music Industry Loses a Great Soul, Singer Kefee Dead

I wrote a post last night, it was one of the last things I did,thanking God for Kefee’s life and the fact that reports stated that she was coming out of her coma. How very unfortunate and sad to hear this morning that she is dead.

A few weeks ago, Kefee was on a 14-hour flight to Chicago for an event. She went into a coma on the flight, causing the crew to make an emergency landing for urgent medical care. Last week we were informed she was in a coma. Today she is dead. May her soul rest in perfect peace.

Official Statement from her team

On behalf of the family….It is with a great sadness but grateful hearts that we announce the passing to glory due to lungs failure this morning of our God’s mouth piece, chorus leader, daughter, wife, sister, friend Kefee Branama Queen … May her beautiful, gentle and precious soul rest in perfect peace. Amen!!

PS: In contrast to all earlier rumors and stories in circulation, I do state that Kefee wasn’t 6 months pregnant and neither did she have pre-eclampsia.
