Press Statement from Mr. Samuel Kwame Kodua, Manager of Daasebreba Kwame

It is with a heavy heart that I address the recent accident involving the legendary highlife artist KK Fosu. The unfortunate incident occurred on Saturday, May 25, 2024, on the Accra-Apam highway as KK Fosu and his crew were traveling to perform at a wedding ceremony.

This tragedy struck on the very day and around the time we had planned to release the highly anticipated collaboration between Daasebreba Kwame and KK Fosu, titled “Akonoba.” The incident has undoubtedly affected the energy and excitement we had hoped to share with this new release.

On behalf of Yaco International, we extend our deepest sympathies and wish KK Fosu a speedy recovery. It is our hope that he will soon return to doing what he loves best.

We also express our heartfelt condolences to the family and fans of blogger and publicist John Claude Tamakloe, who tragically lost his life in the incident. May he rest in peace, and may the good Lord keep him in His bosom until we meet again.

Despite these challenging circumstances, we are immensely grateful for the support Ghanaians have shown for the new song, “Akonoba.” The track is receiving significant airplay, and we appreciate the efforts of all DJs and presenters who have made this possible. We encourage everyone to continue streaming the song on all platforms and to support the incredible talents we have in our country.

Thank you for your continued support.
