Nigerian award-winning gospel singer, Kefee Don Momoh, has been confirmed dead. This came even as Nigeria is yet to recover from the loss of one of her most celebrated public servant, Prof. Dora Akunyili. Kefee passed on in the early hours of today, after being in coma for about two weeks in an undisclosed American hospital.
She went into a coma, after collapsing on a 14-hour flight on her way to Chicago for an event about two weeks ago. A close family source revealed she was diagnosed of having pre-eclampsia – pregnancy induced high blood pressure.
Kefee whose music career started at age eight in her church choir, was famous for her gospel songs ‘Branama’ and ‘Kokoroko’.
Until her death, she resided happily with her husband in the US and managed her restaurant, Branama Kitchen, in Lagos.
