omanhene-pozoh-1Hiplife artiste Omanhene Pozoh has passed on.

The former member of hiplife group, Nananom, passed during the early hours of Wednesday at the 37 Military Hospital where he has been on admission for some time now.

His wife Tracy Toulon confirmed the news of his death to Myjoyonline.com.

The ‘Kyenkyen bi adi me awu’ hit singer has been in and out of hospital between November 2015 and February 2016 and was admitted after his condition deteriorated in April this year.

His family said they were struggling to pay his medical bills and were praying that he will be fit enough for a surgery doctors said needed to be performed which was to cost GH¢30,000.

The family explained back then that they are only counting on God and the benevolence of society to help with the bills but it is unclear if the family was able to raise the money.

Myjoyonline.com reported when news broke about his condition, the visit and a cash donation of an undisclosed amount by the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO).

Omanhene Pozo was originally part of Nananom, one of the very first hiplife groups in Ghana which were vibrant in the late 1990s.

After leaving the group, he pursued a solo career working with highlife greats like Awurama Badu, Alhaji K. Frimpong and C. K. Mann.
