Bernard Nyarko

Solemn and sad scenes were the order of the day at the final funeral rites of the late Kumawood star, Bishop Bernard Nyarko.

A video from the funeral, making rounds on social media, showed family members, colleagues in the entertainment industry and sympathisers in attendance.

Amid practising social distancing and mandatory wearing of facemasks, attendees trooped into the residence of the late actor to bid him a final goodbye.

Those present filed past the mortal remains to pay their last respect.

The most notable excerpt from the video was when actresses Christiana Awuni and Nana Ama McBrown were seen weeping uncontrollably as they bid their former colleague goodbye.

Ms Awuni lifted her hands into heaven as she questioned the powers that be why he had to leave so early as she mourned.

Other mourners were seen weeping uncontrollably after they viewed the mortal remains of the affable actor who normally played a man of God or the rich man in Kumawood movies.
