Popular Kumawood actor, Collins Oteng, known in the movie industry as Komfo Kolege, has given a vivid account on why the late actor, Bishop Bernard Nyarko, before his demise, prevented his colleagues from visiting him on the sickbed.
According to the actor on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem morning show on Monday, Komfo Kolege said Bishop Nyarko had said that his colleagues stay away from him while receiving treatment at the hospital.
He revealed that Bishop Bernard Nyarko’s request for his colleagues to stay away was due to the bad state he was in and feared his colleagues upon visiting him would take pictures of him and splash them on social media.
“I spoke to him most of the time while he was sick and I always asked whether I, together with some of our colleagues, could come for a visit but he always declined our request to come visit and his reason for doing so was that he was scared that some of our colleagues will take photos of him and put them on social media which would go viral,” he said.
Adding more to the account, he stated that until the eventual demise of the Kumawood actor, neither him nor any of his colleagues knew where he was.
“Until his demise, we didn’t know where he was, we didn’t know whether he was in a hospital or not. We forced him to tell us but he didn’t,” he added.
He, nevertheless, stressed that Bishop Nyarko at a point rejected financial support offered him by his colleagues, saying he needed prayers and not financial support.
