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.
