The excitement and fun of a musical concert held in Koforidua by Joy Industries turned sour as the unfortunate and unexpected happened.
According to a report filed by Starrfmonline.com, Okala, a veteran comedian who was a pioneer of the popular Key Soap Concert Party in the 90s, collapsed on stage while performing at the Jackson Park on Saturday.
The spokesperson and Managing Editor of Dady Media Solomon Nuwodu is said to have confirmed the news.
According to him, ‘Bishop’ Okala, as he was affectionately called, has been part of the Joy Industries’ programmes over the years, but he was never invited for this Saturday’s event due to ill-health.
“Okala pleaded to perform briefly but he realised he couldn’t continue and the bouncers had to come on stage to hold him because he began to lose stamina,” Nuwodu said.
He was confirmed dead at the hospital Sunday dawn. He died at age 59.
