My dad was everything to me; it’s been tough without him -Akwaboah Jnr



Losing a parent can be tough, and Ghanaian highlife singer, Akwaboah Jnr has not had easy since the passing of his dad, Akwaboah Snr.

The Highlife musician Kwabena Akwaboah Snr passed on in May, 2023, and Akwaboah Jnr says he misses him greatly.

Speaking in an interview on Graphic Showbiz, Akwaboah Jnr. said, “I was closer to him than anyone else in the world. My dad was everything to me. With him now gone, who would be straight with me and tell it to me as it is? Indeed, it’s been tough without him and I am going to miss him greatly.”


According to Akwaboah Jnr,  “You see, what I had with my dad was so strong that I hear from him every day and I always run to him when something beats my mind. It will be hard to replace him because he was the best.”

He continued; When it comes to my music career, he was there for me. I am who I am today because of him. I never released a song without passing it by him. He will literally critique all the songs I sent him and trust me, he was great at what he did,” he said.
