June 14, 2014 – Nigerian Celebrities Pay Tribute Kefee Obareki, Gospel Singer Who Died In LA

Popular Nigerian singer Kefee Obareki passed away exactly 4 am on Friday morning at an undisclosed hospital in Los Angeles

News of Kefee’s death has soon gone viral, with colleagues and fans displaying her photographs on various social media platforms.

Equally devastated by the news, gospel music artiste, Lara George said, “We were colleagues in the industry. Not so many of us are female gospel artistes in the industry. I have met her several times. We have been on stage together several times. We interacted as colleagues. I won’t say that we were very close, but we knew each other well.

“I will miss her drive. She seems to me like a very determined woman who had been through so much and yet kept her faith in God. For me, that is one of the biggest testimonies that one can have. She kept her focus on God in spite of whatever it is that life threw at her. In her, I admired the drive to succeed and the drive to keep at what she was doing and to keep on expanding her frontiers and enlarging her territory,” George said.

Who are we to ques­tion God? -Chinyere Nwabueze, actress

The number of celebrity deaths of recent is so em­barrasing and it’s giving me concern. We were all pray­ing for Kefee to come out of coma only to wake up to this sad news. Who are we to question God? I guess, He needs her more than we do. Kefee died so young but she made a mark. It’s not how long that one lives that matters but how well.

This is a rude shock-Ejiro Okurame, actress

I have been praying so hard to see Kefee come out of coma but I got another rude shock again after los­ing my dear friend, Lizzy Ogbodo, who also never came out of coma. I have received so many bad news this month and I’m just trying to be strong. Kefee’s death is a big blow to me.

We will all miss you-Lisa C, singer

It’s hard to hold back the tears. Dear Kefee, my beloved sister and friend. You shone your light to the world. We love and miss you. Rest on in the Lord’s bossom till we meet at the rapture.

Kefee was like a younger sister to me. We were in the studio when she was record­ing her last song. She loved God so pas­sionately and she lived a good life. Adieu woman of good nature and warm smiles.

The industry has lost a rare gem-Cynthia Onuoha, actress

The industry has lost a great icon. Keffi brought life to the music industry with her talented dance steps; she had so much zeal to get to the top and she didn’t relent. A wonderful mother and a sweet coach. Rest in peace.

May her soul rest in perfect peace (amen).

    Osh! Kefee I can remember years back while I was in the university each time I want to go down, but when I remember your song “Na who know me before” I got console with your song.

    The trouble of this world is too much that good people does not last. When I heard that you have waken up from coma, my heart was filled with joy only to wake up the next day and heard that you have gone forever.

    Keffee, I don’t know you as a person but I know you through your wonderful and inspiration songs. May God Almighty forgive you, your sin and give you rest. An for your family and your husband, I pray that the Almighty God consoled them. Amen.
