Tributes and messages of condolence have flooded social media after news broke that veteran actor, ‘Kohwe’ born Kofi Laing has passed on.
While many are sympathising with the bereaved family over the loss, others are angered about the sad state of veteran actors who have contributed to the growth of the industry.
The works of Kofi Laing, they say will never be forgotten.
According to reports reaching Joy Entertainment sources, he died on Thursday at his Accra residence.
Joy Entertainment sources say the veteran actor suffered a stroke recently and was receiving treatment.
