The Police stood with me in the office and they said unfortunately we couldn’t get any of them, chairman Clement and pastor Eric looked at me and all I said is It is well. Then they asked me how do we tell Mummy, and I told them to leave it to me because she is my wife”

Tragedy on United from Accra to Washington as man dies in flight

Daniel-Toffey-Jr

Tragedy struck onboard United 997 while in the middle of the Atlantic when a young man of almost 27 died in what is suspected to be a case of pulmonary embolism.

What’s worse, Daniel Junior dies as his father Daniel Toffey Sr. looked on helplessly – in flight.

“He kept saying ‘Daddy I can’t breathe, Daddy I can’t breathe,’” the senior Toffey narrated to DNT in an interview moments ago.

After having sat for a while, the victim was said to have attempted to stand up to go and use the restroom when his movement became shaky, and was soon gasping for air.

One young lady shouted, “we need a doctor, we need a doctor.” At that moment, what appeared to be a sixth sense got the senior father to jump from his business class area and rushed to the scene although the flight crew instructed everyone to remain in their seats.

 

               

 

Unfortunately, with as many as seven doctors on board, and with tools with which those doctors were “impressed” for United Airlines to have on board, Daniel Toffey Junior still suffocated too death in flight.

The flight took off from the Kotoka International Airport around 11pm on Sunday and was scheduled to arrive at Washington Dulles early on Monday.

Bur as a result of the tragic incident, the flight was diverted to Bermuda where all 178 passengers were lodging at Grotto Bay Resort pending their continued travel to Washington.

Jesse Lasuer, a neighbor at business class told DNT how the deceased father was holding up in spite of the monumental loss. “Although he is holding up just fine, you can just see the pain in his eyes,” Lasuer recalled.

Daniel Toffey had come to Ghana with his wife and Gospel Artist son to attend the funeral of an in-law. The wife stayed behind while father and son took the lead home to Pataskala, Ohio – a suburb of Columbus.

The Junior Toffey was scheduled to launch his album on June 4 with Joe Mettle scheduled to attend in Columbus. But now, the mother, at the time of posting this story, was in flight heading home to prepare for the arrival of her husband and the body of their son.

The Toffeys hail from the Jomoro area of Ghana.

I Cannot Minister Chairman Opoku Onyina’s “Nyansabuakwa Nyame” For The Second Time – Diana Hamilton

diana-hamilton-album-grace-e1643799680650-611×405

Ghanaian gospel artiste Diana Hamilton has revealed that she won’t minister the popular twi “Nyansa boakwa Nyame” song again.

The 2021 VGMA Artiste of the Year said she has never and would never be able to tell the “Nyansa boakwa Nyame” story twice. According to her “Nyansa boakwa Nyame” was a classic spontaneous time of worship. The song came to the limelight again during her “Experience” worship concert in Kumasi; prior to that, she ministered to the same song in Accra however it did not get the traction Kumasi’s version got.

Speaking to Rev. Thompson Sakyi on the Church Groove on Class 91.3FM she noted, “So I will I have never and I will never be able to minister Nyansa boakwa Nyame the way I ministered it on this night. I can’t, I can’t do that! You cannot retell that story twice. If you want to know what spontaneity is, Nyansa boakwa Nyame is your classic spontaneous time of worship and so yeah you canrehearsesed that’s why I’m just grateful to God that we were able to capture it because sometimes you might miss it but I’m just grateful to God that he did what he did but we’re able to capture it.“

 

Mrs. Hamilton further revealed “But every day I minister that song, He deals with us differently on that particular day; that’s what trusting in God and relying on Him does. You don’t have to create an atmosphere, cook it up, then it’s not spontaneous. However, there are some songs we would rehearse, we will rehearse most songs and then leave the rest to God then take it and do what He wants to do with it. So we knew we would do Nyansa boakwa Nyame, did we know I was going to fit in my mom‘s example and ask Chairman Opoku Onyina for permission? No, I didn’t rehearse those. The songs that followed did I rehearse those? No, I didn’t. To be honest I did that song in Accra before Kumasi because Accra is always number one however Kumasi’s experience was different”
