Ghana’s highlife legend Nana Tuffour has died.
The 66-year-old died Monday dawn in his home after a short illness, family sources told 3news.com.
His body has since been deposited at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.
The ‘Abeiku’ hit maker early this year released a new song, Abasa Komu.
Tributes have been flooding social media after news of the musician, popularly known as 9-9-2-4, broke Monday morning.
“It’s sad to hear that the High Life musician 9924 (Nana Tuffour) has passed away,” Cobby Randy tweeted.
