How did DJ Rab Bakari die? Death cause

6th March* I would rather be on ‘The Beach’ this Independence [from the goddam #British monarchy] Day.

(Yessir! I’m here!)

With this Instagram statement, DJ Rab Bakari revealed that he was at Busua Beach enjoying the gorgeous Independence Day.

According to reports, he was attempting to swim around in order to spend some quality time there. By the way, he doesn’t know how to swim properly. There are also no security guards nearby at the time.

At one point, he lost control of the waves and wanted to keep close to the coast, but he couldn’t because the waves drew him in. He tried to swim but couldn’t keep up.

Fans complained that they don’t educate people on how to swim properly and that they should inform people that they don’t breathe in water.


DJ Rab Bakari Cause of death

As a result, DJ Rab Bakari drowned in the water and gradually lost his vitals. The safeguards arrived and attempted to locate him. They returned him to the shore once they found him. They attempted to remove the water from his lungs and recover him. But it was too late; he suffered from acute hypoxia, which had harmed multiple organs, most importantly the brain. And, unfortunately, we have lost a great man.

…”.in 1998 I met Reggie Rockstone and Rab Bakari on the streets of Accra jumpstarting the hiplife movement. Guido Sohne of blessed memory was lead architect in developing Reggie’s website under the auspices of Webstar – our web enterprise. Yesterday we got together at Rockstone’s Office for a little reunion to get 2018 going – thanks for inviting me Grandpapa and Rab — you guys are the quintessential definition of African hip hop.”
