Sorrow gripped the hundreds of mourners who gathered at the Sacred Heart Cathedral Church at Ho-Bankoe in the Volta Region on Saturday, October 17, 2020, to pay their last respects to late Citi TV, Keyboard Idol contestant, Chris Afelete Tamakloe.

The solemn church service was followed by the interment at the Ho public cemetery.

Deputy Head of programs at Citi FM and Citi TV, Ranstina Opare-Saforo, who read a tribute on behalf of the media organisation, described Chris as a God-fearing, wise and gifted young boy.

Chris, 13 died on Saturday, September 19, 2020, after a vehicle in which he and his father were travelling was involved in a road accident, at Asutsuare Junction.
