Veteran actor, Prince Yawson is reported to have died.
He is said to have passed on earlier today at the 37 Military Hospital after battling an illness.
Mr Yawson was 52 years of age.
The sad event was confirmed by veteran actor, Bob Smith Jnr (Diaboloman) who was inconsolable.
The actor, popularly known as ‘Waakye’, has featured in many prominent movies in the Ghanaian space.
In October 2020, the actor confirmed rumors of his illness but added that God has 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.
