Veteran actor, Prince Yawson has reportedly died at age 52. The actor is said to have passed on earlier today at the 37 Military Hospital after battling an illness.
The actor, popularly known as ‘Waakye’, featured in many prominent movies in the Ghanaian space. In October 2020, the actor confirmed rumours of his illness but added that God had healed him.
This followed assertions that he had been hit by a mild stroke some years ago. But Waakye seemed to have recovered and found his purpose as an ordained Reverend Minister in April 2021. 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.
News of his death has shocked many Ghanaians who have taken to social media to express their condolences.
