We didn’t want to accept Ghetto KB’s death – Brother

Senior brother of Kwabena Buahin, popularly known as Ghetto KB, who passed away last Sunday, says the family is still finding it very difficult to come to terms with the death of the rapper.

Speaking on Showbiz Review on Hitz FM, Bright Ampofo said Ghetto KB never complained of any ailment and his death came as a shock to family, friends and fans.

Narrating how his brother passed away, Mr Ampofo said, “KB went to town on Saturday evening and came back after the rains. Then on Sunday, he left the house, strolling around the area, then about 100 metres from our house, he collapsed and fell.”

“He was then rushed to Inkoom Hospital on the Spintex Road with the help of neighbours in a taxi. We did not even know something like that had happened, so we got a call from the neighbours that KB had been rushed to the hospital so we quickly went to the hospital.

Mr Ampofo said his brother was later transferred to Lekma Hospital where “he was pronounced dead on arrival. We didn’t believe them so [we] asked another doctor to check again, we shook his body several times but it was confirmed that he is dead.”

Asked about the cause of death, Mr Ampofo noted that KB never complained of any sickness and they don’t know why he collapsed.

He said they did not believe they had lost their brother saying “We didn’t want to accept that we had lost Ghetto KB.”

Mr Ampofo however revealed that they took the mortal remains of Ghetto KB to the 37 Military Hospital Monday for an autopsy and they will communicate the cause of death as soon as it is made known to the family.

Ghetto KB played the role of ‘Ntikuma’, son of Kwaku Ananse of popular Ghanaian folk tales ‘By the Fire Side’.

He has performed on prominent stages like Akon Live in Ghana concert, appeared three times on Joy FM’s Night with the Stars and has collaborated with big acts like Sinimi, Obrafour, and Kaakie.

He signed on the Xtra Large Music label, same label as dancehall artiste Kaakie, in September 2012.
