Bright Ampofo brother of the late unsung hip life artiste Ghetto KB says his brother died of lung defects.

Confirming the cause of death to Hitz Entertainment News Ampofo said his brother died of a "bilateral massive pulmonary embolism."

It is a condition where a clot  of blood prevents blood circulation to the lungs, increases the pressure to the heart and causes an almost instantaneous death, Hitz medical checks have explained.

Ghetto KB died on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at the LEKMA Hospital in Teshie, a suburb of Accra.

Prior to his death Ghetto KB recorded and featured on several hit songs including ‘African Name’ by Sway, ‘Radio’, ‘One Night Stand’, ‘No Other Love’, ‘Bills On Me’, and ‘Number One’.

He had a brief spell with Snipers Music group based in the UK and returned to Xtra Large Music where his career began to take shape commercially.
