In a saddening turn of events, Ghanaian rapper and former Lynx Entertainment signee, Andy Nii Akrashie, widely recognized as Oj Blaq and affectionately known as the ‘Biggie Boy Lover,’ has passed away. The news of his demise surfaced yesterday from close sources, leaving fans and the music industry in mourning.
The exact cause of his untimely departure remains shrouded in mystery. However, it is worth noting that in a candid interview back in 2016, he revealed a near-death experience due to a kidney-related ailment. Blaq courageously battled through double kidney failure, attributing it to past indulgences in binge drinking and smoking.
Amidst life’s challenges, he found a transformative path. Embracing a new chapter, he emerged as a born-again Christian, channeling his energy into spiritual endeavors. This resolute shift also marked his return to the public eye, albeit in a different role – that of an evangelist.
Beyond his musical prowess, Blaq ventured into the world of acting, gaining prominence for his memorable role in the beloved Ghanaian series, Sun City. His multifaceted talents and charismatic presence left an indelible mark on both the entertainment and spiritual realms.
As the music and entertainment fraternity mourns the loss of a vibrant and multifarious talent, Oj Blaq’s journey serves as a poignant reminder of the fragility of life and the enduring legacy one leaves behind.
