Veteran actor, Kofi Laing, has made a passionate appeal to Ghanaians to show him love while he is still alive and not wait till his death.
According to Kohwe, as he is popularly known in the Ghanaian Entertainment industry, the plight of old actors who, through their talents, brought laughter and smiles on the faces of Ghanaians some time ago is nothing to write home about.
“In our days, the movie industry was not rewarding in monetary terms while the movie producers and directors also had their favorite actors so we couldn’t acquire any wealth despite our hard work,” he said.
Speaking in an interview on Adom FM’s Work and Happiness, Kohwe said some of his colleagues died as paupers in sorrow because there was no support for them.
“It is unfortunate that people will wait for you to die before they show love but I am pleading with them to do it for me now while I am still alive,” he said.
He added: “I will appreciate your kind gesture no matter how small it may be in your eyes. You can send your support through my mobile money number, 0244437963.”
Kohwe is known for the active roles he played in Ghana’s ‘Akan Drama’ series and the popular ‘District Colonial Court.’
