The sad news reaching us this morning is a very bitter pill to swallow.It is the demise of a veteran actor who brought smiles and entertainment to our various household.According to reports,the veteran actor Mr. Kofi Laing has passed on. This report was confirmed by Madam Comfort Laing , who happens to be his daughter.
She made it known that her father who is popularly known as Kohwe on screen, passed on at his residence on Thursday,16th September, 2021.
Cause of death
Per the information gathered, his death came just a few days he was spotted sitting on the laps of an unknown man. The photo of his helpless demeanor went viral on social media. It is believed that the veteran actor suffered from a stroke and aged 75 at his time of death.
It was no long ago that he was spotted on the media urging and pleading on leaders to cater for veteran actors. His reason was that, directors in movie roles leave them unrecognized and end up giving movie roles to younger actors. Consequently, they are left to fend for themselves leaving many of them paupers. So sad!
His heartfelt message
“Don’t wait for me to die, before you pay glowing tribute to me for my wonderful contribution, your tribute will be meaningless because it will not bring me back to life,” he said
It is our sincere prayer that his humble soul rests in perfect peace. Again, we wish to send our condolences to family of Mr. Laing.
