Popular Nigerian songstress, Kefee Don Momoh, has died.
Kefee died on Friday morning in an American hospital of lung failure, her United Kingdom-based manager, Adeline Adebayo said.
Various Internet accounts of the cause of her death centered on pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, but Adedayo denied.
“On behalf of the family, it is with a great sadness but grateful hearts that we announce the passing to glory due to lungs failure this morning of our God’s mouth piece, chorus leader, daughter, wife, sister, friend Kefee Branama Queen,” he wrote in a statement.
“May her beautiful, gentle and precious soul rest in perfect peace. Amen!! PS: In contrast to all earlier rumors and stories in circulation, I do state that Kefee wasn’t six months pregnant and neither did she have pre-eclampsia.”
Kefee collapsed mid-air on a flight to Chicago for a performance two weeks ago and slipped into coma.
Recent reports that she recovered from the coma had raised hopes of her survival, until Friday morning when her death was announced.
