Castro’s disappearance made me lose interest in music – D Black

Ghanaian musician D Black said he took a break from the music industry following the disappearance of his friend and colleague Castro.

Castro was declared dead on 6th July, 2021.

According to The Evidence Act of 1975, Section 33, a person can only be declared legally dead after seven years by a court, where the person in question has not been seen or heard from in seven years despite diligent and persistent efforts to find him.

D Black in an interview sighted by TVXYZ revealed, he had been close to the artiste, and they had scheduled to play a lot more shows together before the unfortunate incident happened.

However, he found it difficult to continue his work, so he needed a break.

“You know when Castro disappeared his last song was featuring me and my last song was featuring him. ‘Personal Person’ and ‘Seihor’ were released the same month.

“We had 14 different shows, locked in at different places and then imagine being told that the person you are on these shows with is not around anymore. People are saying he’s dead; others are saying he’s drowned. How are you going to continue doing these shows?”

7 years ago, Castro disappeared with Janet Bandu at the Ada Estuary whiles on holiday.

While the jet ski involved in the accident was recovered on the same day of their disappearance, their bodies were not, despite a search by the police. The pair remain missing to date.
