Deaths in Ghana always come with a whole lot of speculations and stories attached to them. The situation is even worse in the case of celebrities, where rumours are created around their deaths. 

Young, beautiful and talented model, Belinda Asiamah, who passed away on August 12, 2016 has had her fair share since her passing. Popularly known for the role she played in Obrafour’s hit song Pimpinaa, Belinda was rumoured to have died after an attempted abortion.

However, a post on livefmonline.com revealed that one of the doctors who treated Asiamah has denied the report in an interview with Hitz FM.

“She was on admission at the Legon Hospital, what happened was she had an ectopic pregnancy – basically ectopic pregnancy is where the fetus develops outside the womb, typically in the Fallopian tube so it called for a surgery because ectopic pregnancy was dangerous for her. So after the surgery, she had a cardiac seizure where the doctors at the Legon Hospital successfully dealt with,” he said.

He added: “She was transferred here to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on the 11th of August because there at the Legon Hospital, there was no support unit. Immediately she was transferred here, she also had another seizure which we also successfully dealt with and she died the following day, that was on the 12th of August 2016.”

An ectopic pregnancy is said to occur in 1 out of 50 pregnancies. This can be caused by one or more of the following: an infection or inflammation of the fallopian tube which can cause it to become partially or entirely blocked, a scar tissue from a previous infection or a surgical procedure on the tube may also impede the egg’s movement, previous surgery in the pelvic area or on the tubes can cause adhesions and abnormal growths or a birth defect can result in an abnormality in the tube’s shape.

The burial of Belinda Asiamah is scheduled to take place on Saturday, September 10, 2016 at the Madina Cemetery. Burial and thanksgiving service will be held at the Resurrection Fire Ministry International at Social Welfare, Madina.
