Recall that Wednesday, July 7, 2014, Hiplife artiste Castro and his female friend Janet Bandu went missing while jet skiing at the Ada Estuary.cSome musicians have put it upon themselves to celebrate or recognize him for who he is.
However, Kofi Kinaata has deemed it unnecessary to declare Castro dead since he’s been missing for 7 years.
Speaking with Graphic Showbiz he said, “Personally, his absence is costing me a lot and his being declared dead will not change anything for the family, friends, and loved ones since we still don’t see him around.”
“Again, we don’t feel his presence or contribution in our lives, which is a great loss so what is the point in declaring him dead? The declaration will not change how we feel about his absence and the many tears that are being shed for what befell him since we are already in pain,” he added.
“Declaring him dead will not kill him or prevent him from coming back home when he feels like doing that if he is not dead,” he stated
Describing himself as Castro’s protégé, Kofi Kinaata said there were many people like him who were still keeping hope alive that the Toffee singer would return someday.
“As I mentioned earlier, the declaration will mean nothing to me and not change anything for me because there are those like myself who are very optimistic about Castro’s return,” he stated.
