Pencil thin singer, (Moses Okori) Coco Finger is bereaved. He lost his dad, Augustine Otuke who succumbed to hypertension early Monday morning.
The singer, who was on a three week tour of Scandinavia returned to Entebbe Airport on Saturday to the news of his dad’s ill-health.
The old man, 70, a former police officer breathed his last, in the wee hours of Monday before the Kifannayi singer could make it by his bedside in Aboke Sub County, Lira district.
Coco Finger confirmed the sad news on phone: “He has been battling hypertension, diabetes and memory loss. He suffered a stroke two years ago and never recovered,”
Ironically, Coco Finger had only recently secured family land in Kawuku, Entebbe Road with hope of constructing his elderly parents a home. He will be buried tomorrow in Aboke, Lira.
