The remains of Anokye was laid in the morning for family, friends, fans and colleagues in the industry to take their turns to file past the body and pay their last respects.
Sometimes referred to as Kwame Anokye gave up the ghost on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.
The singer had been fighting for his life after being diagnosed with a brain tumour in Ghana.
After a passionate appeal to Ghanaians for funds to undergo a surgery to remove the tumour, Supremo was flown to India in December 2018.
His surgery, however, developed some complications and left him in a coma for weeks as surgeons tried to revive him.
According to Zak, who happened to be Supremo’s manager and friend who was looking after him in India, the Highlife musician had been recovering well last Saturday (January 26, 2019) but suffered a relapse on Monday, January 28, 2019,— and died two days after— aged 33.
