So Bob Okala died after he collapsed while performing on a Joy Dadi stage huh?
Per GhanaCelebrities.Com’s report;
“Bob Okala died early Sunday, after he collapsed on stage whilst performing at an event in Koforidua. He was rushed to hospital but ultimately did not survive.
Okala, who had scaled back on public appearances due to health issues, nonetheless agreed to perform at a programme organised by Joy Industries at Koforidua Jackson Park on Saturday.
It was during that performance that he collapsed and died.”
From the above, a reasonable deduction can be drawn that, Okala was not fit to perform—but his pocket was somewhat dry or he couldn’t throw away a well paying gig because of ‘friendship.’
Many of us are risking our lives and doing all manner of things for this thing called MONEY or simply so that we can hold a disproportionate friendship.
If indeed, Bob was sick, and this was well known to Joy Industries as people are saying—then they could have simply given him the gig money as a friend, without demanding that he performs. And rather, push him into a hospital to care of his health.
At 59, Okala looked 90—perhaps it was bad genes; more reasonably, it was poverty and stress.
The ending story of Bob Okala and Joy Industries is a clear illustration of the sort of ruinous relationship between ordinary human beings and the bourgeoisie, on the back of this thing called capitalism.
For those looking to learn something new; “In Marxist philosophy the bourgeoisie is the social class that came to own the means of production during modern industrialization and whose societal concerns are the value of property and the preservation of capital, to ensure the perpetuation of their economic supremacy in society.”
Joy Industries in this case, fits this vile social structure!
