The 2018 VGMA Hip-hop Song of the year award winner Teephlow, has written what people are referring to as an emotional letter to the late Kofi Boakye Yiadom popularly known as Kofi B.
The Bantama Kwesi Boakye hit maker was reported to have passed on over the weekend which came as a shock to most people as he was never known to have been sick until his demise.Many poured out their hearts and tributes on social media as the news broke but for Teephlow it was rather a very touching letter he wrote to the late musician on his Facebook page expressing his disappointment with how people suddenly become fans after the death of a musician or popular person.
“Dear Bra Kofi,
I bring you greetings from our beloved Ghana. Bra Kofi, you are trending ooo. TV stations are blazing your music videos back to back, radio stations have you locked down. Even 100% gospel radio station has been playing your songs since.
How sad! I said you should have been here to see this sudden love. From tweets and Facebook posts and your photos on IG. Everybody today is a fan of Kofi B. You are called the Highlife legend today when they don’t even nominate you in that category.
Today while news break interludes are Bantama Kofi Boakye song, drive shows have Afia Donkoh locked down since you got called by our father up there.
The question remains, must we leave before we get this kind of love! I have had my face soaked in tears watching how you have suddenly become so relevant to our music industry. The scariest thing is everyone seems to be a fan now, downloading and streaming your music.
I pray that Allah in His infinite wisdom, grant you His heavens. May you rest well BANTAMA KOFI BOAKYE YIADOM.
Your Lil Brother
Don’t Love us more when we are no more. Love us love now. #ScaryReality”
