Gospel star Kefee Don Momoh has been pronounced dead after being in a coma in hospital for a number of weeks. The Nigerian native was being treated in a hospital in the United States for the past few weeks due to a pregnancy related disorder.

Multi award winning Kefee was diagnosed with preeclampsia, a serious condition that affects 5% of pregnant women. She was 6 months pregant at the time of diagnosis and the condition results in elevated blood pressure which can often be fatal when not diagnosed at an early stage.

Kefee was said to have collapsed after getting off of a 14 hour flight to Chicago late last month. She remained in a coma since being rushed to hospital and Kefee's husband Teddy Don Momoh confirmed news of her death saying: “One of her our very own is dead. May her soul rest in peace.”

Gospel singing Kefee had been the recipient of a number of awards including a Best Collaboration win at the 2010 Headies Awards for her hit song Kokoroko in 2010. The news of her death has been hard to take for many of her fans and they have taken to social media to pay their respects.
