John Evans Kwadwo Bosompem, known professionally as Bob Santo or Santo, was a Ghanaian comedian who was born in 1935. He appeared in films in which he communicated in Akan. He usually acted alongside Judas, a neighboring friend.
Following the news of the entertainer's death, Bob Santo continues with several people describing how he died. Santo's doctor, who cared for him before he died, has backed the claim that the late comic's death was caused by cocaine.
Dr. J. K. Kwakye - Maafo, Director of West End Clinic in Kumasi and a Santo sibling, has debunked rumors that the late brilliant entertainer died from cocaine ingestion. He said this during a Santo memorial service held at Akyem Awisa, near Akyem Oda, for a week.
Dr Kwakye - Maafo stated at a large social gathering at the family home that there was no way Santo would have survived for more than 48 hours if he had genuinely taken the medicine. If cocaine had intruded into his body, he saw that no one could get by after that era.
Santo's sibling, Dr Kwakye Maafo, revealed that his sibling came to him for therapy about two years before, in 2000. After diagnosing the condition, he informed Santo that he was developing an ailment as a result of his constant filming, and he advised him to reduce his schedule because he needed a lot of rest. As a result, he traveled to Europe. Santo was diagnosed with a comparable condition in Denmark and was given clinical consideration. He seemed to be doing okay, so he continued with his filming.
When he went to Holland, his illness worsened. Santo was sent back to Ghana to be cared for by Ghanaian clinical professionals who exhorted that he would not last due to a lack of health care coverage to cover him.
Santo died in 2002 at Kumasi's West End Hospital, despite several attempts by doctors to save him.
