He died suddenly of a heart attack on Saturday, age 41. This is his Wikipedia page. The wife and I were shocked to hear the news this morning (Sunday morning). He was just about our favorite reporter on the Beeb. The man was great, and this really is a tragedy. Leaves a wife and three children.
I’ll be surprised if he’s known at all in the US, but I’m curious how well known he is by the Brits on this Board. We saw him on BBC a lot, but I don’t know if how much he appeared domestically. The man was a fantastic reporter and clearly cared a lot about Africa. From Ghana. I see from his Wiki page that his grandfather composed the Ghanaian national anthem, and he’s a Harvard grad.
RIP, Komla. You will be missed.
