Veteran actor, Bob Smith Junior, popularly known as Diabolo Man, has said he didn’t believe the death of Waakye.
He stated in an interview on Hitz FM that he only believed that Waakye was dead after he saw his lifeless body.
Mr Smith Junior also revealed that he nearly fainted after the shocking news hit him.
“Seriously, I nearly dropped, I nearly fainted, but I told myself it was not true. I knew he was ill. On Monday morning, he was rushed to the hospital. First, to Korle-Bu, there were no beds for him. He went to Ridge, but it didn’t work, and they went to 37 with his fiancée.
“Incidentally, over there, they had a good reception. So, we all knew he was on admission and were preparing to go see him and see what we could do. We called a couple of friends. Normally, when it happens like this, you need a good amount of money,” he disclosed.
Diabolo Man further stated: “I couldn’t believe it because I thought something could be done about it. I seriously couldn’t believe it…[he broke down crying].”
Veteran actor, Prince Yawson aka Waakye, was reported to have died on August 2, 2022.
