The mother of a 30-year-old tenant who was shot and killed in his rented home at Ofankor said her son was destined to be a star.

Spark Benjamine was a budding musician who was murdered by his landlord. His mother, Stella Okyere, believed her son was a devoted musician that was destined for greatness.

Speaking to GhanaWeb, she stated that the deceased always told her that she was a mother of a superstar in waiting.

“My son’s death is really a blow to us. He was a beacon of hope. We are not rich but Benjamin was a big inspiration to us. He always told me that my labour will not be in vain. He also used to tell me that he and his siblings are stars in waiting so I should watch out.”

She also mentioned that his dead son was the lifeline of the family, hence his passing away will have a devastating effect on the family.

“My son was my go to person in times of need. He supported me whenever I needed money to go to the hospital. As he is gone now, where will my help come from when I’m in need?”
