Gone Too Soon…Kefee Passes On

Published

 on

Kefee - June 2014 - BellaNaija.com 01
Nigerian gospel singer Kefee is dead.

Kefee passed on in the early hours of this morning. The “Branama” chart topper went into coma after collapsing mid air on a flight from Los Angeles to Chicago.

Wazobia FM OAP Yaw, a friend of her husband media personality Teddy Don Momoh confirmed the news on his radio show, “One of our very own is dead. May her soul rest in peace.” he said.

She will surely be missed by all. Rest in Peace.

Update – Official Statement
On behalf of the family….It is with a great sadness but grateful hearts that we announce the passing to glory due to Lungs failure this morning of our God’s mouth piece, chorus leader, daughter, wife, sister, friend Kefee Branama Queen … May her beautiful, gentle and precious soul rest in perfect peace. AMEN!!!

PS: In contrast to all earlier rumors and stories in circulation, I do state that Kefee wasn’t 6 months pregnant and neither did she have pre-eclampsia.

For the family
Adeline Adelicious Adebayo
(Kefee’s UK Manager)

    🙁 You just never know when…

    Kefee, as you used your music to glorify God, may He welcome you with open arms.

    Rest in Peace.

      Too many young people this year. Too many deaths and many of them just completely unexpected. I join in this prayer of yours. May Heaven receive you with joy, Kefee. And give your family the strength and understanding to bear your loss.

      I wish very much so too Margie…so many times I was reminded to pray for her after it was annouced that she was in coma, but just got too wrapped with my own issues and never specifically did. I feel so sad and guilty and wish it were false that she is gone.

    @ changing faces..i think BN is right ! Also preclempsia is a very dangerous disease.kim Kardeshain West had her baby earlier becuase of same reason .it was detected in her and she had to go into early delivery.It i s well!

      June 13, 2014 at 1:35 pm

      BN was wrong. She was not pregnant, so did not have pre-eclampsia. They have updated it

    June 13, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    I agree with you @ Rare Gem; this is very overwhelming. I had joined many to pray for her recovery and just 2 days; I was so elated to read that she had come out of the coma. This is one time that it is so hard to say thank you lord in spite my hurt. I don’t understand it and I am shattered Lord . My heart goes out to her family; we might not feel the pain the exact same way you do but a lot of people are hurting. She was so young and inspirational. In fact just recently I watched an interview she did where she said she had just finished a course and was going to utilize her newly acquired skill in Producing or so (not sure). This so so sad.

    June 13, 2014 at 12:03 pm

    To think that i just read a post somewhere few minutes ago that she was out of coma and i was shouting thankGod, only for me to just open IG and see RIP Kefee i am almost fainted and the speed at which i shout blood of Jesus, had my bosses asking what it was. Kefee i didn’t know you in person, but i totally loved your music and your personality. RIP my dear. God knows best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I worry that life is ultra short in Nigeria. Education, wealth, success isn’t enough to insulate us from Nigeria’s dismal life expectancy. We need to be more health aware and focus on prevention. RIP Kefee

    She was not a personal friend but i felt so connected to her and her music was an inspiration, such a talented songstress.

    June 13, 2014 at 2:01 pm

    It’s most likely she died of pulmonary embolism. Most times immobilization can lead to alteration of blood flow. She was on a flight for about 5hours,this must have caused stasis of blood flow.Pls good pple of nigeria,I beg you when you have an ailment like heart conditions,vascular diseases,please don’t travel long distances,even if it’s hypertension be sure to see a good doctor and ask about your situation,every single detail. I read she was in coma,lots of health issues could lead to that, I strongly believe it was as a result of PE cos it happened right in the flight….. This is indeed very sad,she just released her pics from her promo shoot,and now this. This life is indeed short, God pls give the family the fortitude to bear this loss… RIP our very own bramama crooner

    Your death came as a rude shock to me. I cried like a baby at work and each time i talk about your death, tears still come to my eyes. I was one of your greatest fans.
    We met @ Branama Kitchen but i didn’t tell you how much i loved you. Now i feel so terrible i didn’t.
    My mum knows how much i loved you and she didn’t want to tell me of your death when she heard until i called her i tears.
    I read some days ago that you where getting better and my friend and I were so happy. We even talked about songs you’d release to thank God for putting the devil to shame,we had titles like ‘Ooyinn remix” and lots more. The devil has still been put to shame because we know we will still meet someday with our Lord this is the consolation as born again.
    The Lord chose to call you to lead the choir up there as the “Chorus Leader” that you are.
    Rest On, Ma Branama Queen.
    May God grant your family and us your fans the fortitude to bear this great loss.
    The whole Urhobo nation mourn your loss.
    There was no song you did without expressing your love for God , gratitude to HIM and also celebrating our language.
    Our Urhobo export is gone!
    Your songs are still an inspiration to us all.
    The christian community will miss you and the world @ large*smlies*.
    Your latest song”Dem go talk” will sooooo touch lives and help people appreciate themselves for who they are and who God has made them to be and care less about peoples opinion of them because “them must talk”..
    TODE ONIOVO!!!
