A scene from the gathering to mark one week of the manager’s death. INSET: Amakye Dede weeping at the ceremony

Abrantie Amakye Dede, one of Ghana’s most popular musicians, last Saturday broke down in uncontrollable tears at the one week funeral ceremony of his late manager, Isaac Yeboah, who died through a motor accident at the Bunsu Junction in the Eastern Region on January 1, 2016.

It was a somber mood at the ceremony, with Abrantie Amakye Dede wiping his tears with a soaked handkerchief while friends of Isaac Yeboah and family members were also seen in the same mood.

A lot of sympathisers and mourners also broke down in tears as they grieved over the unexpected death of Abrantie’s manager.

The one week funeral ceremony attracted a large number of people from all walks of life including media practitioners, musicians, movie stars and friends of Abrantie Amakye Dede.

Musicians such as Nana Kwame Ampadu, Kofi B, Oheneba Kissi, Kojo Ampah among others, whose presence later turned the ceremony into a lively affair, mounted the stage one after the other to perform their various songs.

Also present at the ceremony were Kofi Wayo, Socrate Safo, Bandex, Jackie Appiah, George Quaye, Sokoo Hemaa, Dr. Cann, Akosua Agyapong and many others.

Speaking to Beatwaves, a teary-eyed Abrantie Amakye Dede said, “My manager is my everything; and I see his death as the greatest loss.

“He was a true friend and a trusted friend who would pay attention to anyone who approached him with a problem without being judgmental.

“His ability to empathize was amazing. May the Good Lord grant him a safe haven and keep him in his bosom until we meet again”.

Until his untimely death, Isaac Yeboah, who left behind two children, was the managing editor of the P&P newspaper.

He died instantly after a fatal accident.
He was with Amakye Dede and his bodyguard waiting for Amakye to perform at a concert at the Paradise Resort at the Bunso junction when another vehicle crashed into them.
