At the news of his sudden passing due to cardiac arrest, the world was stunned and so is ace Ghanaian presenter, friend and a colleague Kwasi Kyei Darkwa otherwise known by his abbreviations KKD.
Komla Afeke Dumor was born on 3 October 1972 in Accra and died in his London home on Saturday January 18 2014.
Check out the eulogy composed for him…
An illustrious Son of Africa has fallen
An intelligent citizen of the world is gone
A kind-hearted father, husband and son has left us
May his family and friends be comforted and be strong
A sociologist and psychologist by learning
A broadcast journalist and newscaster by choice
The nation that birthed him lives in mourning
The continent and the world will miss his fine voice
Your sudden departure is a heart-wrencher
The spirits must have called at the wrong door
But even though your heart surrender
Your spirit lives on in a resounding encore
You lit up the screens of people everywhere
As they rose to see an intelligent anchor
Handsome, dignified and determined to bring
The news to the world and so much more
I miss our jokes about Savile Row bespoke
& the darndest things our children spoke
The smiles in our faces and daggers in our backs
From mates who wished we’d blow away like smoke
We pray for the great family you left behind
On this journey on the stairway to heaven
We hold you dear in heart and mind
Komla Dumor will never be forgotten
Damirifa due, Komla Afeke Dumor
Nyame mfa wo nsie
Rest in peace, Urban Warrior.
God be with you till we meet again
