Ghanaian highlife musician, Jewel Ackah has died at the age of 73.

The ‘Asomdowoe Hene’ hitmaker passed away at his residence in the late hours of Friday April 27, 2018.

The iconic highlife legend prior to his demise was battle with a number of illness including stroke, leg pains and a bloated face for the past 10 years.

The veteran highlife musician was a staunch supporter of the National Democratic Congress and he composed the political party’s captivating anthem ‘Arise’.

He had accused the party last year of neglect but the NDC hit back expressing shock at his claims.

“NDC does not give money; they neglected me even in power. After that composition, I became a typical NDC. I did the song for free, and if I were supposed to charge for it will be over billions of cedis”

‘Abena,’ ‘I’m in the Mood,’ ‘Joyce Sane Bra,’ and ‘Me Wo Bi were some of the other hit songs of the late musician who also had 27 albums to his credit.
