The body of the late pop-gospel artist, Kefee (Irikefe Don-Momoh, nee
Obareki) was given a queen’s burial yesterday Friday July 11th in her
hometown, Okpara Inland, Ethiope-East LGA, Sapele, Delta
The whole town ground to a standstill as the body of their late daughter
arrived Akpevwoghene Educational Centre, Okpara Inland, around noon in a
white SUV with ‘Omega 1’ as the plate number.
She was also in a
white casket and was laid in state in the middle of the school’s
football field while friends and family paid their last respects. The
casket was not immediately opened to the public but a funeral service
was held in her honour while Sammie Okposo, his band and other gospel
artists took turns on the stage set up at the venue.
The husband, Teddy, clad in white had arrived earlier and received the
body along with members of Kefee’s family. The first took her into one
of the classrooms and said some prayers before taking the body to the
centre of the field.
A number of entertainers like DJ
Gosporella, I Go Dye, Linda Etukudo, Nene SoulDiva, Anny Ibrahim,
Princess, Aity Dennis, Daddy Showkey, Tosin Martins and Nikki Laoye were
present at the funeral.
