Gospel singer, Kefee is Dead
Just like the late Dora Akunyili, the state of health of gospel singer, Kefee Obareki , popularly known as just 'Kefee', had been on the lips of well meaning Nigerians for a while now, but news filtering in this morning suggests she is not doing good or may have passed.
Sources told Pointblanknews.com that she passed in a Los Angeles Hospital last night.
The Branama crooner had been really in a critical condition and from information gathered by Pointblanknews.com, , the six months pregnant singer was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia – pregnancy induced high blood pressure.
According to close friends this, was noticed after She had embarked on a 14-hour flight to Chicago for an event but went into coma, forcing the plane to land in Los Angeles so that she could be urgently attended to.
Last week, unconfirmed sources reveal that kefee, who had gone into a coma following her collapse on a flight to Chicago for an event regained consciousness .
Her husband Don Mohmoh of Star FM radio had confirmed her deteriorating health status when he went on twitter call on everyone to pray as the doctors had revealed that Kefee's condition was very critical
This is what a medical doctor in Nigeria, Dr Adeyefa, shedding more light on Kefee's condition, said couple of weeks ago “Kefee is in a precarious situation because of the six months pregnancy. If the foetus had been nine months, the doctors would have removed the baby and saved the mother and child.
“As it is now, not only will the baby not survive because the carrier is in coma, Kefee may also lose her life from further complications. The chances of the mother surviving is narrow, while the kid has a narrower chance. I urge Nigerians to pray for her, that's all she needs.
