Ashamed & Hurt! No excuse makes sense to me – Sarkodie apologizes for no-show at Nana Ampadu’s funeral

Written by on 10/10/2022

Sarkodie has humbly expressed his regret for missing out on the final funeral ceremony of the legendary Nana Ampadu due to unforeseen circumstances.

In a Facebook post on October 9, the musician said he was ashamed of himself and hurt for missing Nana Ampadu’s funeral despite being reminded about it by veteran actor, David Dontoh.

He said even though David Dontoh’s reminder lingered on his mind, it apparently skipped him on the day of the event.

Sarkodie added that it was bad enough for him to be missing the funerals of legends stressing that he needs to do better.

He wrote: “Ashamed and hurt for not making it to the Legend Nana Ampadu’s funeral … Uncle David Dontoh told me about it last Sunday… Crazy how I had it on my mind from then and still missed it but all the same Rest In Peace Grandpa May the almighty keep you safe No excuse makes sense to even myself missing all these legends’ funerals… Need to do better”.

Nana Ampadu died on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, while on admission at the Intensive Care Unit of the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) in Accra with his funeral slated for October 8.
