It said that: “On behalf of the family, it is with a great sadness but grateful hearts that we announce the passing to glory of Kefee.
“Due to lungs failure this morning our God’s mouth piece, chorus leader, daughter, wife, sister, friend Kefee Branama Queen died.
“May her beautiful, gentle and precious soul rest in perfect peace. Amen!
“In contrast to earlier rumours and stories in circulation, I do state that Kefee wasn’t six months pregnant and neither did she have pre-eclampsia,’’ the statement said.
Irikefe Obareki, also known as Kefee, had collapsed on an airplane on her way to Chicago, U.S. for an engagement.
She had been in coma ever since her collapse until her death was announced earlier today. (NAN)
