President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described the late Nana Kwame Ampadu as a highlife legend whose tremendous role in the Ghana music industry is incomparable.

Speaking this morning at the funeral ground, which is being held at the forecourt of the  State House in Accra, the President eulogises Nana Ampadu saying his music has made Ghana proud since he was able to transcend the Ghanaian languages to other parts of the world.

According to the President, Nana Ampadu’s songs, in a way, had an impact on his political life.

“Talk of the commencement and growth of highlife music, and one of the people whose names will be on (the lips of) most Ghanaians is Nana Kwame Ampadu. The outpouring of grief by many Ghanaians following the news of his death is in appreciation of his music’s impact on successive generations of Ghana”.

“He was one of Ghana’s musical icons and undoubtedly a legendary highlife artiste whose music transcended our national borders.”

In his speech, the President revealed how behind the scenes, the late Ampadu contributed towards the New Patriotic Party (NPP) visions.

Akufo-Addo added, “He assisted me tremendously on the campaign trail in the run-up to the victory of my party, the NPP, and the elections of 2016, for which we remain eternally grateful.”

The President consoled the family and said the late highlife artiste will be “sorely missed by all who had the opportunity of knowing and meeting him.”

The family has announced that the funeral rites will continue tomorrow, October 8, at Obo Kwahu in the Eastern Region, where his remains will be taken for interment.

At the State House today, most celebrities like Grace Omaboe, popularly known as Maame Dokono, and other movie stars and music legends bid  Nana Ampadu farewell.
