Father of the late Ronnie Coches, Decarlo Coches Quainoo, has stated that his son had no wife at the time of his death.
He added that his son never married any of the women who are parading themselves as the wife of the late singer. According to him, they were all his girlfriends.
“He is not married to any of the women. They are all his girlfriends”, he stressed.
In an exclusive interview with this journalist, Decarlo further disclosed that he had knowledge of five children, out of the seven acclaimed children of Ronnie.
“I know he has three children, till he later told me he has two more, making five”, Decarlo stated.
When asked about the fondest memory he has of his son, since he was not around him most of the time, he said; “I like his stubborn nature, though he does not listen to me most of the time. His handsomeness, I am sure he picked from me. “ That is why all the girls were after him”.
Decarlo, who admits that he did not have a close relationship with his son due to his constant travels out of the country, is not happy about information in the media that his son had about a thousand girlfriends. He has cautioned the media and all who seek information about Ronnie and his children to contact the office of MUSIGA or his office (Decarlo) at Anyaa.
The father of the musician expressed his appreciation to all for supporting them in their grief.
In a related development, a friend of the late musician (name withheld) revealed to this paper that the late musician had seven children with seven different women. According to her, the eldest is 13 years and each of the children lives with their mother, since the musician did not perform his fatherly obligation. She added that Ronnie’s mum has no knowledge of some of her grandchildren, but she only got to meet some of the children, a day after the singer’s demise in their family home.
Our informant also confirmed to this paper that Ronnie married one lady in the US for his papers, to confirm his stay in the US. According to her, Ronnie lived with Ophelia Adusei for 11 years and Ophelia is somehow the “official” wife known to the family.
The rather sad informant also disclosed that Ronnie had been complaining of heart pains for a while, mostly after every stage performance. She said the singer never paid close attention to the problem, till it became severe.
The ex-member of Buk Bak hiplife group, Ronnie, 36, was the first of four children. He died Thursday morning November 21, at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital after a heart attack.
