Ghanaian artist,Theophilus Tagoe aka Castro, is said to have died in a ski boat accident at Ada. Sources say he drowned in the Volta Lake while on a weekend getaway with Black Stars striker, Asamoah Gyan. Gyan was taking his friends a boat cruise in Ada, when the accident occurred Sunday afternoon, according to the reports.
The Black Stars Captain usually rents out a yacht to accommodate close family members and friends whenever he is in town for holidays. But, according to Ghanasoccernet.com, the said yacht was unavailable this time around, as it had been sent out for repairs. The group, therefore, resorted to using ski boats…Castro and his girlfriend were said to have taken one of the boats out on a cruise on the Volta Lake when the accident occurred.
According to the reports, the lady, who was not wearing a life jacket, suddenly fell into the lake, prompting Castro to try to rescue her.As Castro attempted to rescue the lady, both drowned. The ski boat they were riding and the life jacket used by Castro have been recovered, but the bodies of the two have not been found, the reports stated. Benjamin Tettey, who is at the scene, told Accra-based Adom FM that it might take two or three days before the bodies are found.
The reports HAVE NOT been independently verified. Castro, who hails from Takoradi, was born in 1982 to Lydia Tagoe, a trader, and Mr Coffie, an accountant, at the Takoradi Harbour. He attended Anglican Primary and J.S.S in Takoradi. Before he launched his debut album in 2003, he had featured on hip-life group 4×4 hit track, “sikletele” which officially introduced him into the local music scene. His songs such as ‘Odopa’ ‘Seihor’, ‘AfricaGirls’ have received awards and long airplay over radio waves.
