The family of the late highlife great Daasebre Gyamenah have decided not to hold an Islamic burial for the dead singer despite the fact that he had become a Muslim later in life.
Islamic tradition dictates that a dead person is given an unfussy burial within 24 hours of their death, but the family of the late singer say they have no intention of honouring that, saying as a royal he deserves a grand burial.
They did not say that in so many words, but that’s what they meant.
One family member told Joy News that the body of the singer would be deposited at the St Joseph’s Hospital morgue in Koforidua as they plan the way forward for his final rites.
He said Gyamenah is a royal from the New Juaben Traditional area and deserved a burial in accordance with that.
Daasebre passed away early Friday whilst on admission at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. He had been battling illness for a while now, with frequent trips in and out of the hospital.
