It’s been over two years since Hiplife artiste, Theophilus Tagoe, also known as Castro and female friend, Janet Bandu got missing during a cruise in a jet ski. However, missing musician’s father, John Eshun believes Castro’s not dead and will come home someday.
According to reports from Zionfelix, music producer Edward Nana Poku Osei aka Hammer of The Last 2 is not happy about how Ghanaians have suddenly forgotten the musician known for hit songs like Toffee, Seihor and many others.
For him, Castro is dead and should have been given a befitting burial looking at his influence in the music industry when he was alive. This he said in an interview with MzGee of Hitz FM. He however blamed the family of the musician for insisting that Castro’s not dead, making it impossible for Ghanaians to mourn him.
In response to Hammer’s comments, Castro’s father Mr. Eshun, told Hitz FM’s MzGee in an interview that he hopes his son will come home soon. He stressed that although nothing has been heard yet, they are not making any plans for his funeral because he still believes that Castro’s not dead.
He said that even though Ghana Police has assured them of a positive outcome from their investigation, they are not relying on it as the family is also making their own efforts towards finding their son. He also expressed hope that something good will come out of the efforts the and the public will be informed whenever there is a positive result.
When asked if he believes his son is not dead and would return home someday, he answered yes. He stated that since there is no proof that his son has passed on, nothing will make him lose hope.
I have absolute believe that he will soon come home. There is no evidence that tells me I cannot see him. Where is the life jacket he was wearing? Have you ever heard that somebody has discovered the life jacket? They were two on the jet-ski that very day so at least we should see a trace of one of them. We are still monitoring events quietly,” Mr. Eshun said.
Castro’s Mysterious Disappearance
Afrobeats artist, Theophilus Tagoe, popularly known as Castro went missing, along with friend Janet Bandu, on 6th July 2014. They reportedly got missing while using jet skis on a holiday with former Sunderland striker, Asamoah Gyan’s family in the Ghanaian coastal town of Ada.The duo were last seen heading towards the ocean on a jet ski and were presumed drowned.
However, no bodies were recovered after the incident, thereby presenting the situation as a quite mysterious one. So many attempts were made to rescue the missing persons, or at least uncover the mystery behind their disappearance, all to no avail. A combined search team comprising the Ghana Navy, Marine Police, local fisher- folks and professional lifeguards could not find his body. It also happened that a spiritualist who claimed he could save Castro almost got drowned as he made a daring move to rescue him. Up till this moment, there have been no leads to his whereabouts.
