According to reliable sources, veteran actor Prince Yawson, also known as Waakye, has died.
According to a family source who confirmed the tragic news, the “Obra” actor had been fighting for his life for some time but passed away today, Tuesday, August 2, 2022. Mr Yawson was 52 years old.
However, the exact cause of his death is unknown.
The veteran actor has allegedly been bedridden by a mild stroke since 2013, which explains his disappearance from our TV screens; unlike in the past, when he served Ghanaian TV screens with unadulterated talent and limitless entertainment.
A few months ago, misinformation spread that the legendary actor’s condition had deteriorated and that he had been rushed to a spiritual and herbal home in Dominase in the Central Region; this enraged the actor. As a result, he accused some media outlets of failing to double-check information they disseminated.
The veteran actor was recently ordained as a Pastor after graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Theology from My Life Theology University in Accra.
In the early 2000s, actor Prince Yawson, known in showbiz circles as Waakye, appeared in popular films such as ‘Diabolo,’ ‘Babina,’ ‘Obra,’ and ‘Chorkor Trotro,’ a Ghanaian comedy series aired on TV3.
