    A star has been plucked from the sky.
    The sky is now dimmer.
    It happened on September 14th.
    A day, Haga’s will always remember.

    Efo Kodzo…our last meeting together with Opoman in Accra was great! We relived Mawuli as we reminisced! We planned a repeat performance in December 2011 but alas! As we continue the struggle you go on and Rest in Peace! Your Chicago team from ETA and CSU bids you farewell. I was supposed to deliver a play for your review in December 2011. The team will have to find someone else…but it would not be the same. A Luta Continua!
    Efo, Babaa..RIP.

    You were one of the reasons I enjoyed Mawuli school so much. I vividly remember the song you taught us for NINO’s night (Arkutu, Mensah, Ocloo, Abadzi, SAFO……) It’s sad you had to leave us so soon. The Almighty knows best. May your soul rest in peace Snr Pascal.

    Efo Kojo (Pascal), a giant among men. You will be sorely missed. We remember with great affection, the humour you created, inspired and passed on through your wonderful plays. Your gift of humour lives on through your plays. Thank you for enriching our lives. Rest in Peace.

    I head it on my way to work. I did not believe it. Then I remembered he asked us all to remember him in our prayers. Them I started fliping the dial. It was all over the airwaves. Then I remembered the 1st of July 2009, when he was the MC at the “borbor” get together at the GBC club house where he auctioned the “hata”. I remember he lead Trost house folks to sing the “kokosatsi” anthem.I remember he said Trost house was the only house with an anthem. Now I remember he is no more. He shall still be REMEMBERED. Efo. Rest In Peace !!

    “When wealth is lost, nothing is lost,
    When health is lost, something is lost, but
    When character is lost, everything is gone”.
    Efo Kodjo Mawugbe was a mega star and a huge icon in the arts and culture arena in Ghana, Africa and the world. His image will continue to loom larger than life and his legacy will out-live him.The Mawugbe family, Mawuli School and Ghana should be proud of producing such a gem. May his soul find lasting peace on the right side of God.

    Efo Kodzo Mawugbe was our Entertainment Prefect when we were in Form One. He performed his duties to the BEST of his ability. No wonder he stood tall in his chosen Profession.This teaches us that we should identify our TALENT(S) and develop them to the maximum.Efo, Rest in Peace

    Sometimes it is not how long we live on this earth that matters, but how we live and what we did during our sojourn on earth that sets us apart from our friends and relatives. And it is always no telling how much we have impacted the lives of others such that in death we are still greatly missed. But of all our good or bad deeds on this earth, it is the care, compassion, goodwill, understanding and concern we show toward our fellow human beings that count the most. My friend and mentor,EFO KOJO MAWUGBE was such a person, and this is why I have undertaken on these page to remember him, honor him, and share with you his good deeds.
    In this regard, someone once said: A Good Friend is “the siblings God forgot to give us.” And another said: “I believe that friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.” But as for those of us who were considered Efo’s friends – we saw him as “a four leaf clover, HARD TO FIND and LUCKY TO HAVE,” because he made the world SPECIAL just by being in it. Most people walk in and out of our lives, but only friends leave footprints in our hearts.As a mentor a friend and a brother to many,Efo Kojo was actively involved in religious, social and political activities
    Efo knows that his Redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: And though after his (Efo Kojo) skin worms destroy his body, yet in his flesh, he shall see God. For there shall be no more death, neither shall there be any more pain for the former things are passed away. So fare thee well, my friend,my brother may your soul rest in perpetual peace! And I trust that the Great Lord will richly reward you for your great works on earth, and protect you until such time that we shall meet again. May your soul rest in perfect peace!

    The other side of Fo Kojo Mawugbe (Snr. Pascal), he was an athletic, a 400m runner. Very impressive when he gets to the ‘Aku Corner’ and raises his hands, one must be assured he will be in the medal zone.A goal keeper for the house and the school team. We remember him sharing 7 goals with Snr.Akordor (of wilberforce)
    during a match with then Ho Tech.We also remember him for the weekly articles Araba Season in the Weekend Mirror(Azalo, Adzovi
    ,Goviofe Todzi etc) were all featured well to our admiration because some of us knew the characters and locations. During the inter house plays Fo Kojo wrote for most of the houses in the school. The latter continued nationally and Internationally.Who takes over from you? Fo Kojo? Lucas, Adovor,David Kwadey etc.We are grateful Fo Kojo was at the 60th Anniversary, and while we were at the Dinner Dance (Woazor Hotel) he was directing one of his plays in the schools Dinning hall. That is what Fo Kojo Mawugbe
    had left behind for Mawuli School.OMSU pick it up from there.Snr.
    Pascal rest well. Amen. Don King (KNUST Kumasi Ghana)

    Efo, the last time we spoke it was about our mutual project which had been in limbo for a few years. We were going to revive it. Then you ‘blasted’ me for abandoning creative writing for something else. I understood. I’d like you to know that I’ve started again. Eei! Efo Kodzo! Where’s my share of the BBC prize money. You promised me a cut when you were leaving town for the award, remember? But, hmmm. All I can now is: Rest In Perfect Peace. You deserve it because God Himself knows you’ve done your bit. Na hede nyuiee.

    …yes…Efo… I have never met you but I heard of your great name withing the four walls of ‘Mawuli kpodzi’

    “I’ll remember you in sunshine

    Its rays warming earth and sky

    I’ll remember you in bird’s graceful wings

    As they glide and flutter by

    I’ll remember you in the summer breeze

    And in softly falling rain

    I’ll remember you in dark storm clouds

    The rainbow’s picture frame

    I’ll remember you in blossoms and fields

    And in gentle streams that flow

    I’ll remember you in all that lives

    All that brings life…that grows

    I’ll remember you in the mountains

    When golden leaves fall at my feet…”

    …”Moment by moment I’ll remember you

    You’ll never be too far away

    Because I’ll keep you in my heart

    Each and every day”

    xede nyuie ne nadzudzor le nutifafa me.
