      I know right. I sometimes still find it hard to believe she’s gone. When you see funeral pictures, that’s when reality sets in and you then believe the person is truly gone. Rest in peace, Keefee.

    So her parents were not allowed to see her corpse or be part of her funeral cuz of “customs.”? I thought she was a gospel singer? Which stupid custom come add again inside the matter? Anyway, RIP KEFEE.

    It’s never the joy of any parent to see the corpse of their children, whether custom or she being a gospel artiste. So sad. ADIEU.

      God forbid, but imagine u lost a child or a parent and you were not allowed to see the corpse or be part of the funeral. I bet u won’t find it funny. It’s never a joy for a parent to see the corpse of ther child, but most at times it helps the parent get closure.

    It’s sad indeed… such a young talent but I still cant understand why people were dancing and wearing heavy make up…it is suppose to be a sad event. Burials these days have turned to parties…really really sad its a period of sober and reflection

    RIP sweet heart

    Hmmm, such a huge loss, I believe she is rejoicing now with sweet Jesus and looking down at earth.our prayers should be with her cute husband who hasn’t even enjoyed his marriage with her. we pray that our only God will comfort him at this time in Jesus name

    I still have that true love issue where she speaks about the pain she went through, while I was visiting Naija. I was even at a Christian concert arranged in Johannesburg, she was so full of life. The auditorium was on fire when she came on. I still listen to her song Kokoroko with Timaya on my way to work, but since her demise I can’t bring myself to listen to her. It feels so unfair… After she found Love. God dey. Adieu wonderful child of the most high.

    It is sad news though it has happen about a year ago but the very powerful question is did she make heaven??? Because what shall profit a man that gain the whole world and looses his soul!! Absolutely nothing!!! Rip keffe
