Badu was once a police recruit but soon left to form Nananom Band when she found the service was unyielding to her musical aspirations.

According to her third son; Papa Kwame who is a chartered accountant, his fallen mother deserves a state burial for her contribution to music.

The final funeral rites for Badu is set to be held on February 17, 2018 at the Centre for National Culture in Kumasi.
