John Evans Kwadwo Bosompem also known Bob Santo or Santo as his stage name, was a Ghanaian comedian. He featured in movies speaking Akan. He usually acted with his close compatriot, Judas.
Contrary to rumours that late Ghanaian movie star, Bob Santo, known for his satiric gestures in movies died of cocaine usage, Judas, his best friend and partner is saying otherwise.
According to veteran actor Judas, whose real name is Tweneboah Koduah, Santo died after he was diagnosed of chronic jaundice abroad, a condition that was far near cure for the actor.
Santo was sick and we left Ghana so he could cure himself. He was very ill and even after we returned to Ghana, he lived two months before kicking the bucket.
When issues of Santo smuggling cocaine abroad to make a living surfaced in the interview with Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu, Judas debunked them saying:
“If Santo died of cocaine smuggling why would he survive many months before his death? The doctor made me aware the sickness was chronic because there was not much they could do to save him,” Judas said.
