Ghana loses another veteran actor Waakye.

The entertainment industry these days was very different from what we used to experience in the past. Times have changed as such it has become inevitable that the industry will also change. We had so many great actors and actresses that graced our screens in the past. It was always a joy to behold watching these great men and women entertain us. The dexterity with which they delivered still lingers in our minds today. We can't just have enough of them. One sad aspect of the entertainment industry those days was that it wasn't lucrative as it has become today.

That was one of the things that didn't work for them. Unfortunately, we have lost some of these wonderful people to the icy hands of death. Uncomfortable as it may be, we have no control over such happenings. We heard the sad news this afternoon of the passing away of another veteran actor. Prince Yawson who is popularly known as Waakye has reportedly passed away this afternoon. He is said to have passed on earlier today at the 37 Military Hospital after battling an illness. Mr Yawson was 52 years of age. The sad event was confirmed by another veteran actor, Bob Smith Jnr (Diaboloman) who was heartbroken.

Waakye has entertained us for so many years. He has starred in so many movies. He was the toast of many. Somewhere in 2020, Waakye confirmed that he hasn't been feeling well for a while but by the grace of God he has recovered. He was also later ordained as a pastor after bowing out of the movie industry. Pictures of him wearing a graduation robe and beaming with smiles went viral. He attended a Bible school in Accra for his new religious role after he officially bowed out of the movie industry.

His demise is a big blow to the industry. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family. May his soul rest in peace.
