Hip Life Group Asumafuo Member Dies

 Onetime popular Ghanaian music group, Asumafuo has lost its leader, Zack otherwise called Benjamin Asare.
The late Zack, according to group members, died in a road accident while traveling to Kumasi after the group’s performance in Swedru.
“We really miss him and may his soul rest in peace. We love him and miss him. It is not easy surviving as a group without him but we are taking it cool. Life must go on.
“His death has taken something out of the group; not just for the fact that he was our leader, but also he was hard working. It has been a stressful experience coming back on the music scene without him after a longtime,” they told NEWS-ONEin an exclusive interview.
Asumafuo is currently made up of Famous (Andrews Frimpong) and Lover (Selassie Owusu).
The group started sometime in the year 2000 as a trio, and made its official release in 2005 with the album, ‘Mina.”
The title track ‘Mina’ became an instant hit and enjoyed massive airplay.
Two years later, the group relocated to Jamaica and spent close to two years there. But unfortunately, their leader passed on.
Now Andrews and Selassie are ready to conquer the industry. The group has released its latest single, Trotobento. It is gradually picking up on radio networks and its video is making serious impact on TV networks.
Trotobento comes on the heels of an upcoming album as the group is currently in the studio.
 According to the duo, Trotobento is a signal to music fans that Asumafuo is back.
“We want Ghanaians to know Asumafuo is not dead. Though our leader is gone. We are back.”
The group believes that it has prepared enough to enable it stay in the game.
