Scores of people on Saturday thronged the Forecourt of the State House to show their last respects and bid final farewell to Martin Kwabena Kwakye, popularly known as ‘Wofa K.K”, the Director of Oman FM at Kencity Media Limited, who passed on in February this year.

The solemn, stately and memorable final funeral rites for the highly respected media practitioner were graced by the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, the Chief of Staff, Madam Akosua Osei-Frema Opare, Deputy Chief of Staff, Emmanuel Adumuah-Bossman, the hierarchy of the New Patriotic Party, including its Chairman Stephen Ayesu Ntim, and General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Chief Executive Officer of Kencity Media Limited; Mr. Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, Founder and Leader of Movement for Change; ministers of state, parliamentarians, corporate Ghana, traditional leaders, the clergy and well-wishers and sympathizers.

As early as 0500 hours, some sympathizers had already made their way to the venue to catch a glimpse of the late radio personality.

It was an atmosphere marked by repeated sessions of weeping, sadness and contemplation.

Tributes poured in from his family and several individuals and institutions such as the Kencity Group, the Board of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC), the NPP, Gospel Music trio-Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Resurrection Power and Living Bread Ministries International, and the Ghana Journalists Association.

Bishop Boakye Acheampong, Accra East Regional Overseer, Resurrection Power, and Living Bread Ministries International, during his sermon, urged everyone to live for God and always give him first place in their lives.

Family and loved ones were cut to the heart when the mortal remains of the late Kwabena Kwakye were being put into a hearse to be taken away for interment at the Sekyere Kwaman Cemetery in the Ashanti Region.

Kwakye Kwakye died on February 14 after a short illness at the University of Ghana Medical Centre. Wofa K.K. was a seasoned journalist with over two decades of experience, with a stint at Adom 106.3 FM.

Before his death, he was the host of Oman FM’s political show ‘Boiling Point’ and Director of Radio at Oman FM, a subsidiary of Kencity Media Ltd.
