Ghanaian veteran actor, Prince Yawson who is popularly known as Waakye has died at age 52 — per reports, he passed on earlier today at the 37 Military Hospital after battling an illness.
This unfortunate news was confirmed by his colleague in the film industry, Bob Smith Jnr aka Diaboloman.
You recall that in October 2020, it was confirmed in some reports that Waakye was hospitalised after battling a stroke after a photo of him on a hospital bed went viral — he later said in an interview that he regrets campaigning for the NPP party and being neglected by the people he stood for on his sick bed.
Some months later, he appeared to have recovered and found his purpose as an ordained Reverend minister in April 2021.
He attended a Bible school in Accra for his new religious role after he officially bowed out of the movie industry.
Before his demise today, August 2, 2022, ‘Waakye’ had featured in many prominent movies in the Ghanaian space.
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
