Ghanaian Gospel Singer, KODA, Dead At 46

KODA, the reputable Ghanaian gospel singer-songwriter, producer, and instrumentalist, passed away on April 21 at the age of 46. He gained widespread recognition for his unique style, which combined evangelical sermons with funny social satire and classic highlife music.

Fellow gospel musician Nii Okai verified the news, which was extensively covered by the local media. Nii Okai asked people to pray for the family as they deal with the loss. Although KODA’s cause of death was not announced, the artist talks about receiving the incorrect prescription for eight months from a doctor in 2015 in a video that has since surfaced. Social internet is ablaze with mourning after his passing.

The popular singing group Joyful Way Incorporated expressed their sincere grief on KODA’s demise and highlighted the significant influence he had on each member of the group. While MOG Music was performing on Sunday night in Accra, they led the audience in observing a minute of silence in memory of KODA.

The Takoradi singer, Kofi Owusu Dua Anto (KODA), gained popularity for his songs “Nkwaa Abodo,” “Nsem Pii,” “Adooso,” and “Hossana.” Six compilations bear his name on them: two live albums, two studio albums, and two instrumental/jazz albums. In 2021, he released Keteke, his most recent album.

As the creator of KODED Studios, he also produced gospel musicians including Joe Beechem, Eugene Zuta, and Nii Okai and the late Danny Nettey.
