Is Castro Really Gone?

Is Castro Really Gone?

It’s been 3yrs and some months now since Ghana’s hiplife artiste, Theophilus Tagoe known on stage as Castro under Fire disappeared in Volta River estuary in Ada with his female friend, Janet Bandu and a lot of Ghanaians are still looking forward for their return.

Reports had it that, two years after the disappearance of Castro and Janet, his father, Mr. John Eshun denied the fact that his son is not dead because his body has still not been found though a diver with the named Samuel Odartyey Lamtey reported seeing the dead bodies of the two underwater.

Quoting from an article published on JoyOnline, “The reported days ago that Hammer of The Last 2 is not happy about how Ghanaians have suddenly forgotten the musician known for hit songs like Toffee, Seihor and many others.

To him, Castro is dead and should have been given a befitting burial looking at his influence in the music industry when he was alive.

The legendary music producer real name Edward Nana Poku Osei in an interview with MzGee of Hitz FM blamed the family of the musician for not accepting his demise to allow Ghanaians mourn him.

Mr. Eshun, Castro’s dad reacting to Hammer’s comments told Hitz FM’s MzGee in an interview that he hopes his son will come home soon so there are no plans for his funeral. He said even though Ghana Police has assured them of a positive outcome from their investigation, they are not relying on it.

“We have kept our fingers crossed. We haven’t heard anything as at now. There are no plans for a funeral or whatever because we are looking beyond now.

As we all know, the police came out with a press conference that they are still investigating so they have given as about seven (7) years”

It’s been three years now, is Castro really coming back? Or should we forget the issue, dumping our legend like that without a befitting funeral?

Well this question is left for Ghanaians to decide. Drop your comments below
