Come fifth of next month, the late singer, dancer and cook, Keffee will be remembered in a massive event tagged ‘An Evening With Keffee’. The event which will hold in Lagos is aimed to be a befitting remembrance for the musician who passed on last year. The Branama Queen as Kefee was fondly known will also be releasing a post-humus album at the event which will be a compilation of some of her numerous unreleased songs.
The organising team which is headed by her husband, Radio presenter, Teddy Don Momoh also have friend colleagues and family members in it. Speaking at the unveiling of the event at the Kobis in Ikeja, during the week, Teddy who obviously still emotional, shed light on the event. “It is going to be a celebration of her life. There will be performances by over 20 musicians. It is going to be a night of music dance and networking. The event is for all her fans whom we expect to come out to have fun with Keffee.” Momoh also assured fans that the event is free and there will be no gate takings.
An evening with Keffee will hold at the Daystar Christian Centre Annex 2, Oregun, Lagos. The February 5th date was picked because the day is Keffee’s Birthday which she usually marks by going to help the needy. Keffee died June last year after collapsing in a US bound airplane. She later died in a US hospital.

Keffee was born in Sapele, Delta to the family of Andrew Obareke who were at a time Decons. Kefee graduated from University of Benin with a degree on Business Administration. Growing up as teen, she actively engaged herself with church activities especially singing in the choir. As her passion for music kept growing bigger, she started writing and composing songs. In 2000 she released an album titled "Trip" and that made way for her into the Nigerian music scene as a Gospel artist. In 2003, she released her Branama album shortly after that. The Branama album brought her into the spot light as a fulfilled Gospel artist with sales both national and international. And that served as a starting part to her successful career as Nigerian gospel artist.
