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 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, , 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.

Some even suggest her  her health trouble started after her jibe at COZA Pastor, Biodun.

According to speculations she took ill after she lambasted Pastor Biodun in an interview with Encomium brading him ' that so called Pastor”

Both fell out after the church cancelled a concert that was billed to feature Kefee. According to her, as she was about to leave for the airport, the PA to the Pastor called to cancel the show, and referred her to a publication that talked about her failed marriage to her ex, Alec Godwin.

She had said ” He said if i had seen a newspaper story concerning my ex husband Alec Godwin, i said yes, it is a scandal. And he said they dont want to have anything to do with me because of the scandal”

In 2011 Kefee was on tour in  Canada. The Sapele born singer  for three weeks  treated  fans to live music and her chereographed dances. Her official tour schedule included performances at Toronto 25th, Edmonton 3rd and Calgary 10th Dec.2011

Kefees who also toured  the US saw her perform alongside Grammy Award-winning artiste, India Arie and Tyrese Gibson at the African Festival of Arts in Chicago.

Kefee was a UN peace ambassador .

rip kefee d african best gospel artist it is well wt ur soul
Dr Bukki Olujide | 6/14/2014 4:46:00 AM
I'm sad about Kefee's death.I had prayed for her recovery when I read about her condition...I want to state that it's not biblical to pray for the dead or to wish them to 'r.i.p'.The bible says it is appointed for men(and women) to die once and after this,judgement.Let those of us still alive take heed to ourselves,always seeking first GOD's kingdom and HIS righteousness,surrendering our lives totally to The Lord Jesus Christ,and doing the will of GOD,HIS Grace helping us-'What shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his soul..I say to us J.I.C(Jesus is Coming).Be prepared.
Daisy | 6/14/2014 5:42:00 AM
It's really painful bt ur memories lives on. May God grant u an enternal rest. RIP
9ja Halleyberry | 6/14/2014 7:26:00 AM
My Sapele sister from another mother,I coouldn't believe it that ur gone just so soon.......If Kefee,such a lively,talented and promising gift to naija could pass on,I think its time we start praying to God for His abundance grace and mercy for our survival o! Or are we going to say,Na crime say she get belle again after finding happiness in Don Momoh.....? Na pikin be the blessing we follow marriage nao...Chai Adieu Kefee, I love but God knows the best bcos naim love u pass,Rest well my personal sister. From Halimat Sadiq
