The Musician Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has refuted rumours that one of Ghana’s finest highlife musicians Ben Brako is dead.
A statement by the musicians' body and signed by Ahuma Bosco Ocansey, Director of Communications and Special Projects at MUSIGA, described the rumours as distasteful and insisted the musician is doing well.
According to the statement, on Saturday social media, especially Facebook, was buzzing with rumours of Mr Brako’s death and “leading players in the industry who have spoken to him have expressed their distaste at the rumours.”
“MUSIGA would like to categorically deny this rumour and tell Ben’s teeming fans and friends alike that Ben is doing well,” the musicians’ body said.
The statement quoted Ben Brako to have assured his fans that “I am alive and kicking and looking forward to my next gig.”
Former MUSIGA President Diana Hopeson, who spoke with Ben on Saturday, was unenthused about the rumours while MUSIGA President Obour also expressed his dismay at them.
Ben Brako last performed at the MUSIGA Honors event at the National Theatre on Friday March 6 this year.
