The nightmare of any newly married woman is to lose her husband not long afterwards and in Valentina Ofori Afriyie’s case, she was so stunned by the demise of her broadcaster husband Kwadwo Asare Baffuor Acheampong alias KABA that when she was finally informed of his passing, she stated it was untrue but reality was soon to set in.
Valentina managed to birth little Nana Yaa who is a few months old before the passing of the bulky KABA.
But who is she?
Well, blakkpepper gathers Valentina worked at Spirit FM in Kumasi as a broadcaster and according to Okay FM’s Kwame Nkrumah Tikesie, he knew her well in Kumasi before they both sojourned to Accra.
In Accra, she served with Lartebiokoshi based Radio Gold for many moons before securing a deal at fast rising radio station Class FM.
Her educational background is bare and information her age equally scant.
KABA passed on to eternity on Saturday, November 18, 2017 having been rushed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
Since his passing, gurus from the NDC, NPP and other political parties have all commiserated with the young widow including former president Mahama and Vice-President Dr. Bawumia as well as other well-meaning Ghanaians.
We wish the family well in this trying time.
