Bola Ray, Anas, Joselyn Dumas, John Dumelo, Lexis Bill and other celebrities pay tribute to late Kofi Annan.

In the early hours of today, 18th August, 2018 a black start (Kofi Anan) was shot down to the surprise of many. 

The news of the demise of such a personality who served the world with his all and has always held high the flag of Ghana everywhere was a blow as Ghanaians grumbled to accept the news. 

In the confusion of it, a tweet from the Kofi Annan Foundation settled our doubts and we are left with no option than to come to terms with the reality.

“It is with immense sadness that the Annan family and the Kofi Annan Foundation announce that Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of the United Nations and Nobel Peace Laureate, passed away peacefully on Saturday 18th August after a short illness…” the Kofi Annan Foundation in a tweet said.

The first gentleman of the land has issued a directive that all flags of Ghana should fly half-mast across the country and in all of Ghana’s diplomatic missions across the world, from Monday, 20th August 2018, for one week as Ghana mourns the late Kofi Annan.

Mr. Annan was the first black African to take up the role of the world’s top diplomat, serving from 1997 – 2006 and also served as the UN special envoy for Syria.

The astute diplomat who died at age 80 after a short illness has set the internet agog as tributes pour in from all angles. 

Bola Ray, Anas, Joselyn Dumas, John Dumelo, Kwaw Kese, Edem, Lexis Bill and other celebrities also joined in and paid tribute to the late Kofi Annan.
