It’s been 2 years since Nigerian gospel singer, Kefee Obareki Don Momoh passed away.
In honour of her and to celebrate the second anniversary of her death, Kefee Peace Foundation will run a week-long free medical check-up starting today, June 12, 2016.
Kefee died of lung failure in a Los Angeles hospital on Thursday, June 12, 2014 after being in a coma for 15 days.
In partnership with Prince Joy Medical Centre, the free medical check-up will run from Sunday June 12, 2016 through June 18, 2016 at the hospital located at 28, Oyebanjo street, Igbobi, Lagos.
In her lifetime, Kefee was very much interested in peace-keeping. In 2009, she was honoured with the prestigious International Young Ambassador for Peace Award at an event which held in Lagos.
In 2011, Kefee Peace Foundation released a track titled ‘Let peace grow’. In this moving track, Kefee Obareki and friends appealed to Nigerians to let peace grow.
Kefee was born in Sapele, Delta on February 5, 1980. She graduated from University of Benin with a degree in Business Administration.
Growing up as a teen, she actively engaged herself with church activities, especially singing in the choir.
She actively began her career in 2000 when she released an album titled “Trip” and that made way for her into the Nigerian music scene as a gospel artist.
In 2003, she got signed to Alec’s Entertainment, a record label founded by her former choir director and she released her Branama album shortly after.
The Branama album brought her into the spot light as a fulfilled gospel artist with sales both national and international.
