Late gospel crooner, Irikefe Obareki-Momoh’s Kefee’s Branama Kitchen at 11, Ajose Street, Mende, Maryland, Lagos, is still shut… four months after the beautiful singer passed away on June 13, 2014, as a result of lung failure after being in coma for 15 days.
ENCOMIUM Weekly paid a visit to the African dishes restaurant on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, and the mood around the one-time heavily-patronized eatery has not been altered with neighbours affirming to our reporter that no one has been to the restaurant since it was shut down on Friday, June 15 – days after the singer died in a hospital in the United States of America (USA).
Repeated efforts to speak to the late singer’s husband,
on why the restaurant which used to attract a host of celebrities is still under lock hit a brickwall as the on-air personality (OAP) said he does not want to speak on anything concerning his late wife anymore.
Songstress, Kefee Obareki Don-Momoh, born Irikefe Obareki, opened the restaurant, which she said was borne out of her passion for African recipes, two years ago (February 2012).
