Dwamena’s funeral brought together former Black Stars players including Augustine Arhinful, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Ibrahim Tanko, Kwadwo Asamoah, Isaac Vorsah, and Sulley Muntari.

The Ghana Football Association(GFA) President Kurt Okraku also led a delegation including General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo, and Executive Council Member Eugene Nobel to pay their last respects.

The player passed away on Saturday, November 11, 2023, after a cardiac failure during an Albanian league game while playing for KF Egnatia against Partizani in the 24th minute.

Prior to the sudden death, the 28-year-old was diagnosed with a heart condition and as a result had a defibrillator inserted before making a ‘personal decision’ to remove it in 2022.

The talented footballer made his international debut for the Black Stars of Ghana on June 11, 2017, against Ethiopia.
