He said his late mother deserves a state burial.

 

He added that he agrees with critics who believe the ‘Medofo Adaade Me’ singer needs the funeral organised by the state to honour people of national significance.

Speaking on Accra-based Univers radio, he said the family will not force government to organise such event for his mother but her mother's family would be happy if such a decision is taken.

Awurama Badu died at age 72 and is survived by four children.
