Fast-rising Ghanaian musician and businessman Gambo, has paid a surprise visit to Cofie Eshun, the father of the late hiplife legend, Theophilus Tagoe who was popularly known in showbiz as ‘Castro Under Fire’.
The visit formed part of activities of his Takoradi media tour.
Gambo embarked on the Takoradi tour to promote his ‘New Era’ Extended Play (EP).
The ‘Drip’ hit maker says he thought it necessary to pay his respect to the family of one of the greatest Ghanaian musicians that ever lived.
Castro’s father was highly thankful for Gambo as an up and coming musician to do the needful by visiting him.
Mr. Eshun observed how other musicians visit Takoradi to do their media tour but do not bother to pay him visit upon all that his late son did for the Ghanaian music industry.
He prayed for God’s blessings upon Gambo’s music career just as he would have done for Castro if he were still alive, expressing how he deeply misses his son.
Gambo was humbled by the kind words and prayers from Castro’s father.
He was also humbled by the great reception he enjoyed in Takoradi, saying his overall experience in Takoradi has been one of the best so far in his tours.
He expressed gratitude for the great support he enjoyed in Takoradi.
‘Castro Under Fire’ disappeared on the 6th of July, 2014 at the Beach in Ada during a jet ski with Janet Bandu, a female friend.
Reports indicated at the time that the two, while on holiday with the Gyan brothers opted for a jet ski cruise at a resort close to the Ada estuary and they never returned jetting but their jet ski was later found with a life jacket hanging on it.
