Mr. Blay, most popularly known for his song Take Away confirmed the news on Accra-based Hitz FM: “On Saturday, I was at church rehearsing with the band and choir for Sunday church service when I had a call that she had been rushed to the Lapaz Community Hospital. When I saw her condition upon my arrival at the hospital, I requested that she should be transferred to 37 Military Hospital. They accepted my plea and transferred her around 11pm Saturday. From that 11pm Saturday till the time she died on Monday, she was in coma – she couldn’t tell anybody what happened to her.”
