Onasis Kobby: Rest in Peace Kofi B. You served us great hi-life tunes. Much Respect.
Very sad to hear of the passing of one of the most talented musicians I managed from day one. Kofi B was an exceptionally talented musician and it was a delight spending time with him in the studio with Ofori Amponsah at the turn of the last millennium.
Sleep well B!
GH Melodies: First time I met him, the whole vibe was so cool like we’ve known each other for years. He’s such a jovial man with high sense of humor and humility. This is too hard to admit. Rest in peace Kofi B.
