The family of Hiplife artiste Castro has said that, instead of organizing a funeral to mark the first anniversary of the musician’s disappearance, they will rather mark the day with special prayers to ask for God’s guidance for him.
The father of Castro, Mr. John Eshun, an employee of Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority spoke with Graphic Showbiz.

“We as a family have not planned anything or a funeral for Castro, but on that day, we will gather and pray to ask God that, wherever Castro and whatever happened, He (God) should reveal it to us because the mystery is too much to bear.”
“Yes, we as a family have missed our son but until we get credible information on exactly what happened to him, we will not hold any funeral for him because we believe he is alive somewhere.”
“We hope to see him one day. Infact whether dead or alive he belongs to us and we are waiting.”
“Just like he always tells us he is traveling for one show or the other – he goes and comes back, so we would want to look at the whole thing as one of such trips. We are still hopeful he will come back.”
“I must say that my wife, children and the rest of the family are at the moment left with no option than to resort to fervent, endless prayers which have been our ‘weapon’ to fight the pain his mysterious disappearance has brought to us.
“Our supplications to God since the day of the incident is still for Him (God) to show us the way and also what really happened to our son. In our heart, one day our son will come back. I pray to wake up one day and he will be there as usual to tell us what he has been up to.”
Castro was reportedly drowned at Peace Hotel in Ada with his female friend Janet Bandu on July 6, 2014. Later the story was changed to missing.
Monday July 6, 2015 officially marks a year since the incidence.
