The promising act while returning from a performance at the University of Ghana Legon got involved in accident and died at age 21.

His then Manager, Reagan Mends, is saying that if the late Terry Bonchaka should be alive, he would have won a Grammy for Ghana by now.

Speaking during a phone-in session on Onua FM’s Entertainment and lifestyle show to commemorate Terry’s 18years after his death, Reagan Mends said the ‘Pulele’ singer had all it takes to win Ghana a Grammy award.

I managed King Ayisoba, after Terry Bonchakas death, and Ayisoba gained prominence. For the first time, a traditional artist won the overall Artist of the Year in GMA in 2007. It had never happened. I believed if Terry Bonchaka was around, I would have won Grammys with him,” he said.

He further stated that his former artist, King Ayisoba, couldn’t get anywhere because of his poor background in education.

Because he had all the qualities an Artist needs except being well-educated. That’s one of the things that restricted Ayisoba internationally. Ayisoba is illiterate. So he doesn’t understand some things, sometimes because of illiteracy. Terry Bonchaka was a complete artist. He’s got everything,” he said.

Terry Bonchaka was born as Terry Nii Mensah Adjetey, and rose to fame with his unique music style. He reigned in the music industry from the year 2001-2003 when he died.
