Seven years after his disappearance, Ghanaians can still jam to songs created by the Legendary hiplife musician Castro.
Castro started singing at the early age of 10 and entered the musical scene with his 2003 hit song “Sradinam”. He had features on the hip-life group 4×4 hit track, “Sikletele,” which officially introduced him to the local music scene before he launched his debut album in 2003. “Sradinam” soon became one of many Ghanaians’ favorite hits.
Castro’s dream was to retire and become a producer. His dream was to help bring to the limelight talented unknown young artist. He believes that this will develop the young talented artist and groom them for the market by becoming a producer.
Castro was a friend of the Ghana national football team’s captain, Asamoah Gyan. The duo recorded three albums together. “African Girls” was another hit of theirs
On 6 July 2014, Castro and Miss Janet Bandu were reported to have drowned following a jet ski accident in Ada Estuary while on holiday with the Gyan brothers. The jet ski involved in the accident was recovered on the same day of their disappearance but their bodies had not been recovered, despite a search by the police. Little is known of his disappearance.
After seven years, neither Castro nor Janet have returned, and their bodies have yet to be discovered. It is now necessary for a court to legally pronounce the two dead, as stipulated in Ghana’s 1992 constitution.
Evidence Acts of Ghana, 1975, Section 3 states that a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.
This means both lost personalities will be declared dead after 7th July, 2021 and their families can proceed to hold a funeral for them.
