He became a household name on the back of the song ‘Mampi’ but has since struggled to replicate that fine form and tragically Vybrant Faya has passed on.

Vybrant Faya real name Emmanuel Kojo Quayeson had a vehicular accident on the Tema Motorway and despite efforts to revive him, he died at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra on Sunday, October 23.

The dancehall artiste was signed to the Shatta Movement Family (SMF) and on the back of the ‘Mampi’ hit, greater feats were expected. The news of Faya’s passing is the more tragic given he had just concluded talks with his management about plans in the works to produce another commercial hit tune only to be informed about the eternal loss.

A statement signed by Kelly Nii Lartey Mensah from the Shatta Movement Family (SMF) Communication Directorate shed more light:

“We are shocked and in total state of sorrow. We met with Vybrant and some of his family members on Sunday afternoon around 3pm and had a rather good discussion. Few hours after their departure we had a telephone call that Vybrant Faya had been admitted at the 37 Military Hospital after being involved in an accident. 

“A team from SMF was quickly dispatched to the hospital only to be told that our brother has passed on. We are grief-stricken and cannot hold back our tears. Our deep condolences to the family. Family of Vybrant Faya is yet to release official statement on the issue.  May Allah find a peaceful place for you brother till we meet,” the statement concluded.
