A stuntman who worked on the Marvel flicks Black Panther and Avengers perished in a horrific automobile catastrophe, along with three of his children.
Taraja Ramsess, 41, his 13-year-old daughter Sundari Ramsess, his 10-year-old son Kisasi Ramsess, and his newborn daughter Fugibo Ramsess were killed in the collision on Interstate 20 in Dekalb County, Georgia.
On Halloween night, Ramsess was driving a pickup truck full of youngsters when it collided with a tractor-trailer, killing himself, the 13-year-old, and the infant instantly, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
After the collision, his son, Kisasi, 10, and a 3-year-old girl were rushed to the hospital in severe condition. Kisasi died on Sunday as a result of his injuries. According to authorities, the girl is in critical but stable condition.
According to preliminary investigations, Ramsess was driving a Ford F-150 when he hit a tractor-trailer in the left lane on an exit ramp.
According to IMBD, Ramsess worked in the film business and performed stunts for Marvel’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.
He also worked in the art department on over 43 projects, typically as a set dresser, including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Tributes have been flooding in for the adored musician and his family, with a GoFundMe established up on his mother’s behalf raising $81,359 so far.
‘Kisasi – or ‘Sauce the Boss’ – brought so much joy to so many people’s lives. Every minute he was in the hospital, he was surrounded by adoring family members.’ The GoFundMe page for the 10-year-old stated.
Ramsess’s mother, Akili Ramsess posted on Instagram: ‘All who knew and met him know how special Taraja was. He had a deep capacity for love and loved his children more than all. He loved his martial arts, motorcycles and all things related to filmmaking.’
‘He is a very droll yet wicked sense of humor & yet could be as cornball corny as can be. Sundari, Sunny as she was called, also reflected that special light. Funny & loved to dance. Oh God! I can’t believe they’re gone!’
On Instagram, filmmaker Ave DuVernay paid tribute to Ramsess.
‘He walked like a king. And to me, always acted like one. He was a part of our crew family at ARRAY. He left us last night forever in a way that makes the hearts of all who knew him break into a million pieces,’ she said.
We’d talk about art and his family. My goodness, did he love his children. I remember one day on set, we didn’t have enough Black background actors for a key scene. I had to recruit my crew members to be on-camera.’
‘Taraja was the first to say yes. Yes, I’ll do my real job and then jump into this wild scene playing a tough guy with a gun for you,’ DuVernay said.
‘He was just an amazing person. We have a great loss to this world. It makes you reflect and gives you a new perspective on everyone you need to call every day. Because you never know when your last words are going to be to someone,’ long-time friend and X3 Sports trainer Tony Tucci said to WSB-TV.
‘He was always a family man. They would come and sit and watch him train, and they would jump in and start training too.’
Ramsess’s cousin Pharaoh Hardee told USA Today: ‘He was very involved and loving with these children. I would FaceTime call him randomly throughout the day and he would be getting the kids ready for school, picking them up or taking them to gym with him.’
Piesie Esther openly declares love for Sarkodie’s songs
Piesie Esther, a gospel singer, has publicly commended rapper Sarkodie for his distinct style.
She added that she like his tracks because of his extraordinary ability to convey properly the lyrics in his rhymes.
Piesie Esther named Sarkodie’s song “Countryside,” which featured Black Sherif, as one of her favourites.
“What makes me love his [Sarkodie] rap is that you can hear what he is saying… recently, the one that he did with my man [Black Sherif], I love it. I don’t normally listen to those songs, but when they are playing, I listen” she said in an interview on Starr FM on November 24, 2023.
The award-winning gospel artist also expressed a desire to work with Sarkodie in the near future.
Wendy Shay donates educational materials to Weija Presbyterian Primary School
Wendy Asiamah Addo, also known as Wendy Shay, provided teaching and learning materials to students at the Weija Presbyterian Primary and Junior High School in the Greater Accra Region on Monday, November 20, 2023, through her organisation Shay Foundation.
Branded exercise books, newly made school uniforms, detergents, and refreshing drinking water were among the kind donations.
This charitable deed, which honoured International Children’s Day, demonstrates Wendy Shay’s dedication to encouraging student access to critical educational resources.
Speaking to the students and staff of the school, the ‘Bedroom Commando’ crooner said, “Shay Foundation is a nonprofit organisation that is committed to seeing to the welfare of both young and old. The organisation aims to support the educational needs of the community. Our main mission is to provide equitable access to quality education for underserved communities. It’s sad to see people drop out of school because they do not have the proper materials. Education is the key to the future, and we must do everything possible to make sure that every child has access.”
The acclaimed singer welcomed kindred spirits with open arms, pushing them to band together and make a lasting influence on the foundation’s noble cause.
Wendy Shay ensured that, in addition to educational contributions, entertainment had a role in the donation ceremony, exciting students with live performances of some of her favourites.
For the past three years, the Shay Foundation has been pursuing these humanitarian activities with zeal.
