Ghanaian act, Gambo visit father of late ‘Castro under the fire’


Fast-rising Ghanaian musician and businessman Gambo, has paid a surprise visit to Cofie Eshun, the father of the late hiplife legend, Theophilus Tagoe who was popularly known in showbiz as ‘Castro Under Fire’.

The visit formed part of actions of his Takoradi media tour.

Gambo embarked on the Takoradi tour to promote his ‘New Era’ Extended Play (EP).

The ‘Drip’ hit maker says he guessed it necessary to pay his respect to the family of one of the greatest Ghanaian musicians that ever lived.

Castro’s father was highly grateful for Gambo as an up and coming musician to do the needful by visiting him.

Mr. Eshun identified how other musicians visit Takoradi to do their media excursion but do not bother to pay him visit upon all that his late son committed for the Ghanaian music industry.

He asked for God’s blessings upon Gambo’s music career just as he would have done for Castro if he were still alive, conveying how he deeply misses his son.

Gambo was humbled by the kind words and prayers from Castro’s father.

He was also humbled by the tremendous entertainment he enjoyed in Takoradi, saying his all-around experience in Takoradi has been one of the best so far in his tours.

He conveyed appreciation for the great assistance he enjoyed in Takoradi.

‘Castro Under Fire’ died on the 6th of July, 2014 at the Beach in Ada during a jet ski with Janet Bandu, a female friend.

Documents indicated at the time that the two, while on vacation with the Gyan brothers opted for a jet ski cruise at a resort close to the Ada estuary and they never returned jetting but their jet ski was later found with a life jacket hanging on it.

Gambo is balanced to become the face of Ghana music in the new future, with the release of his ‘New Era’ Extended Play.

The ‘New Era’ EP was launched on June 18, 2021 and has seen Gambo featuring the likes of veteran rapper, Ayigbe Edem, Strongman, Medikal and Sefa.

Early this year when Gambo released the ‘Drip’official video believed to be the most expensive music video for 2021 so far, Gambo made it obvious that there was a melody for everyone on his upcoming EP.
