Nigerians Hold Memorial Service For Late Singer, Kefee In California, USA

Friends and family of the late Nigerian singer, Irikefe Obareki, popularly known as Kefee, have concluded plans to hold a memorial service and a celebration of life for the Kokoroko crooner on Thursday, 19 June, 2014.

Pulse reports that the event, which will hold in California, USA, will parade some of the finest Nigerian gospel singers and ministers who are based in the US.


According to the organizers of the service, the occasion will not be an event for tears but that of celebrating the impacts the late Kefee had on Nigerians with her soul lifting songs, industry and encouraging spirit.

It could be recalled that the late Branama Queen passed on on Friday, June 13, 2014, in the United States of America.

According to her manager, the late singer died of lung cancer.

The remains of the late gospel singer arrived Nigeria on Tuesday, 17 June, 2014 ahead of the burial which will hold later this month.

Kefee’s body was flown into the country via a Delta Airline aircraft and touched down at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, at 4 pm.

As the Obareki’s family prepares for Kefee’s burial, we wish them the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss.
