Home Sweet Home star Emmanuel Kojo Dadson has reportedly died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.
According to reports, he died on Tuesday at the capital’s biggest referral hospital while receiving treatment for dialysis for kidney problems.
The versatile actor has been in a wheelchair for the last eight years as he recovers from a stroke.
PaJohn Bentsifi Dadson, a blood brother of the deceased who is also a travel, art and entertainment writer disclosed that Mr Kojo Dadson passed on exactly two weeks after his wife died.
He said the ‘Run Baby Run’ star unexpectedly became sick a week ago and was subsequently dehydrated.
The comic actor was rushed to the Greater Accra Hospital aka Ridge Hospital where he was put on drips while they run several tests on him.
According to Mr PaJohn Bentsifi, the doctors diagnosed the ‘Love Brewed in African Pot’ star with a kidney problem and recommended he undergoes dialysis.
Mr Kojo Dadson went for his first dialysis session on Tuesday, February 9, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital but unfortunately passed on.
Kojo Dadson laments deplorable treatment of veteran actors
In 2015, the ‘Hotel St. James’ actor told Joy News he sometimes weeps for the uncertain future of veteran actors in the country.
The actor who suffered a mild stroke while on a movie set recounted what he went through during his sickness which convinced him that the welfare of matured actors is not on the priority list of the Ghana Actors Guild.
He said the Guild has no welfare plans for the elderly in the movie industry.
The actor revealed that although he is one of the pioneers of the Guild, he looks back on its founding principles with much regret.
“It certainly doesn’t make me happy. In my personal case, I am not frightened as such because I work for my father’s company.
“I have my social security so I feel for those who maybe do not have anything to depend on when they get old. The acting industry does not have anything for them to rely on” Kojo lamented.
