The week one celebration of the late Mac Tontoh of Osibisa music group was held late Monday, August 23, 2010 at his Airport West residence in Accra.
Sadly and regretfully, Hi Newspaper gathers, no single Hiplife artiste showed up at the event, making one wonder if they would make it to the funeral scheduled in early October.
One veteran musician, name withheld, expressed utmost shock at what is fast becoming 'a dangerously bad character' among our young musicians.
“You only see them at the niteclubs and at Ghana Music Awards because there'd be money to pick there”.
“That is why they hardly acquire experience and lessons from us the old folks in this business”.
Mac Tontoh died late Monday at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. He suffered stroke, diabetes and was flown to London during the earlier stages of the stroke for treatment and his condition improved markedly.
Present at the one week celebration hosted by the late musician's family members, were J. A. Adofo, Diana Hopson, K.K. Yeboah, Jewel Ackah, Bessa Simon, Ben Brako, Pat Thomas among others. The funeral is scheduled for Kyerepatre in the Ashanti Region on October 2.
