The Acting President of MUSIGA, in a press release sighted by BEATWAVES, assured the family of the unflinching support of the union to ensure that the late musician is given a befitting burial.

“As we all know we’ve lost one of our legends who was also a former Vice President of MUSIGA and a Founding Chairman of AMWeF. He was very supportive of the work of the Union and played a great role in establishing the fund to support aging and needy musicians. We will miss him greatly,” he said.

Meanwhile, the family of the legendary highlife musicians has announced that the one-week celebration of AB will be held on August 13, 2022, at the Bethel Methodist Society, Community 8 in Tema.

Baba who was named Francis Yaw Ofori died Thursday, September 8, 2022, after battling an unconfirmed ailment.

He died not long after he had said in an interview with Bryt TV that he was spiritually attacked but he survived.

The family initially wanted to organize his funeral in his hometown up north.

However, that decision was annulled due to a protest mounted by his colleagues in the showbiz industry.
