A gory accident on New Year’s Day claimed the life of Amakye Dede’s managerand best friend while they were waiting at the roadside to perform a show at the Paradise Spot.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Entertainment Review on Thursday, Amakye Dede said “What I remember on paper is GH¢ 49,296; the donation accumulated to GH¢ 31,530. So after the funeral, I asked that they sell the car which was involved in the accident and add GH¢ 20,000 from the donations to the money they will get from the sale of the car and buy a fix deposit for the two children Isaac left behind,” he stated.
Amakye Dede further indicated that the rest of the money was given to Isaac Yeboah’s mother and the family for upkeep and transportation respectively.
“I also asked that they give his mother GH¢ 10,000 and the remaining GH¢ 1,500 was given to the family for transportation back to their homes. The amount I spent on the funeral was my way of giving my manager a befitting burial. I’m not taking it from anybody. It was my way of showing respect to my former manager,” he said.
Isaac Yeboah’s final funeral rites was held on January 30 at Abrantie Spot, Lapaz.
