Sly Collins drops tribute song for Late Peace Fm GM

Veteran Ghanaian highlife musician, Obiba Sly Collins, who has been in the music business for well over 30 years, has released a tribute song for the late Kwesi Brenya – General Manager of Despite Group of companies.

Obiba Sly Collins released the song just after the one-week celebration of the deceased.

The musician, who performed two of his popular songs at the one week celebration of the late General Manager, revealed to that though he has met the late Kwesi Brenya only once, all the testimonies which was given by family, friends and workers were howling – to the extent that he couldn’t stay without recording a memorable song for him.

He said that a good man is always a good man adding “Kwesi Brenya was humble and respectful to everyone”.

In our culture, we often speak good things about the death, but, Obiba strongly believes all that have been said about Mr. Brenya are real.

According to Obiba, Mr. Kwame Despite and Father Dickson have indeed lost a humane brother, diligent and loyal staff and a comrade.

“Songs are very powerful. Anytime the song is played, it will remind us of his good works and will help us not to forget him just like that,” he said amidst tears leaking from his eyes.

Mr. Brenya passed away on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at the 37 Military Hospital after a short illness.

He died at age 57 and final funeral rite is scheduled for 26th, 27th and 28th June.
