In 2016, Baker’s daughter, Leda, posted a blog post on his website which said that Baker was “recovering very well” after “open heart surgery and a bad fall.”

“He called the day after his surgery to say he was OK,” she wrote. “Albeit a rather disoriented and unintelligible conversation he was at least awake and aware. The fall has resulted in swollen legs and feet which he is seeing his doctor about in the next day or so. But although he is recovering, any performances in the near future seem over ambitious.”

Baker is survived by his wife Kudzai Machokoto (whom he married in 2010) and his three kids from a previous marriage: son Kofi and daughters Ginette and Leda.
