My mother deserves State burial – Awurama Badu’s son pleads

Those who were hit most were her immediate family and colleagues who expressed shock on the death.

The sad news of the passing of veteran musician, Awurama Badu, last Thursday was a shock to many Ghanaians.

Those who were hit most were her immediate family and colleagues who expressed shock on the death.

Ceaser Ohene Karikari, a son of the late musician said the whole family is devastated at her passing because she was a mother to all.

He said his late mother deserves a state burial.

He added that he agrees with critics who believe the ‘Medofo Adaade Me’ singer needs the funeral organised by the state to honour people of national significance.

Speaking on Accra-based Univers radio, he said the family will not force government to organise such event for his mother but her mother’s family would be happy if such a decision is taken.

The one-week celebration, according to the family, will be held on Friday, November 3 at Asante Banko after which the burial arrangements will be made public.

Awurama Badu died at age 72 and is survived by four children.Source:Pocket News

  1. Yes Awurama Bedu must be celebrated, she has done a lot for the entertainment industry of Ghana and deserves a state burial. Even at her old age she accepted to aid the youth in the music industry , I quite remember her contribution to TV3 mentor. I am a lover of songs and will not bother if my comment is published. Kom kom na ya ye ooooo, government please do something. She deserves a state burial. Thank you.

  2. Yes she deserves more than a state burrial. Her songs come with peace messages. Maa, Ghana loves you. Rest peacefully.

      • What do you mean exactly? Her songs inspired millions of Ghanaians. Read about her. Ooh maybe you’re a fan of some of these new Ghanaian artistes who are simply chocking our airwaves with absolute noise.
        Awurama was an inspiration!

        • Sad news but want to know the roll she played for the nation, then Tommy wuradu and other musicians, falm actor’s and actress who had pass away should also fight for there’s Ghana is a peaceful country so we need peace

  3. Why must she be given state burial does this means all the musicians who will be dying would be given state burial? Not bad to be given her a state burial tho but would she be going to heaven straigth after given her the state burial? Just a question.

    • Whether she’s going to Heaven or not is definitely not our business. Maybe you should contact God. Our interest is in honoring a woman who has done a lot for many Ghanaians.

      • I doubt you took time to read before replying.
        How can Ghanaians judge where she’s going? Only God knows. We should be able to substantiate issues from sarcasm.
        Anyway requesting for state burial by her son doesn’t mean it’s granted.

    • Why are u desperate about her going to heaven or not,but the way I guess we should celebrate our heroes before they go to eternity

  4. So shall we all pass on one day.
    May her soul rest in perfect peace.
    But, how are we the living preparing for this ultimate journey ?

  5. Hmmmmm. What do we learn from this when we hear of such news. Where do we go from here. May God Almighty direct US to His path. May your soul rest in the abord of God.

    • You ask a question that touches my heart ,where will go from here ,I am a foreigner but I have so much heard about this notorious singer,may her soul rest in perfect peace

  6. That state burial thing must stop,does it mean government officials have to organized state burial for every musician who pass on. I said it oooo when they did for paapa yankson,it’s good but not necessary.

  7. May her soul rest in perfect peace.
    Think about where she is going and the accountability she is going to account than that state burial. God be with the family.

  8. She really deserve a state burial simply because she once
    served in the nations interest as a singer at the Ghana police service.
