Why Kefee Will Be Missed In The Entertainment Industry …She Was Never Pregnant -Management



Last Friday, top gospel singer in Nigeria, Kefee Obareki died after being in coma for days in a US hospital. Her demise came as a shock to many Nigerians, who thought the lady would come back to life. She was a darling to many music buffs as a talented female gospel artiste.
Her ‘Branama’ hit single back then did not only launch her into the gospel music scene, but also put her name on the map of the Nigerian entertainment industry. Years later, she shook the streets of Nigeria with a duet with Timaya, a dancehall artiste, with the multi award-winning ‘Kokoroko’.
Though many criticised her back then for doing a song with a secular artiste as a gospel musician, this did not stop the song from being played and rendered as chorus in most churches. The single got Kefee several shows from churches, social circles, and corporate world amongst others. In fact, any DJ that did not play ‘Kokoroko’ at clubs or events was considered to be living in the past.
The song also pushed Timaya’s music career as some were almost getting tired of his ‘enemies’ and ‘olofofo’ anthem.
Kefee finally lost her battle for survival after days in coma, when she was rushed to the hospital as she reportedly collapsed on a plane to the United States. Doctors battled to bring her back to life in a stable manner, but afterwards she reportedly came out of coma and went back only to succumb to nature and went to the world beyond.
Though several reports claimed Kefee died with a six-month pregnancy, her management in the United Kingdom released a statement debunking such reports.
According to the release made available to First Weekly, “Kefee was neither six months pregnant nor had pre-eclampsia (a situation associated with pregnancy induced hypertension).”
Meanwhile, some of the colleagues of the deceased in the entertainment industry have expressed shock at the singer’s death. They lamented that her talent would be missed in the entertainment industry in Nigeria.
“She was a friend, a sister, a colleague and a strong woman. Working with you on that ‘Kokoroko’ song was a blessing. We will miss you much dear. RIP ‘Branama’ queen Kefee,” Timaya said, while Daddy Showkey, who hails from the same state as the deceased, simply said, “Kefee, may your soul rest in peace.”
On the part of Ini Edo, she said, “Rest in the bosom of the Lord. I wasn’t privileged to know much about you, but the world cannot be wrong about you being a sweetheart. I can remember how much you wanted me at the official opening of your restaurant. I particularly was a fan of your song, ‘Kokoroko’. Dunno why, we can’t question God, but I believe He has provided a better resting place for you in his bosom. RIP.”
Waje, Kaffy and Rita Dominic respectively said, “Sleep well dear,” “RIP Kefee,” and “this is just sad. RIP Kefee, only God knows best.”
