The brouhaha surrounding the cause why Bishop Nyarko’s mother prevented his colleagues from visiting him on his ill bed does not look like it’s going to depart any time soon.
In a latest twist to the story, Oboy Siki, a veteran Kumawood actor who was also very close the deceased Bishop Nyarko has clarified why the decision was made and has requested the film makers to stop making stupid claims approximately trying to assist him financially. He spoke on Kofi TV, monitored by GhanaWeb.
According to him, at first he was confused as to why the relatives would make this type of decision not to permit anyone to visit him, till things were made clear to him by the late bishop and his mother, and he fully agreed with them.
Oboy Siki was responding to controversies surrounding the bishop’s choice and the uproar that decision triggered among a few Kumawood folks. Oboy Siki stated the hypocritical nature of movie makers in Kumawood was the motive why the relatives came to that conclusion not to permit visitors. He said Bishop Nyarko in an interview before he died stated he specifically gave instructions to his mother not to permit anyone to come visit because they are all hypocrites, and he completely agreed due to the fact that indeed Kumawood filmmakers were nothing but hypocrites who would have visited him camera prepared to take snap shots to share on social media.
He rebuked the movie makers who claimed they desired to assist him with money and questioned them on which money they claimed they desired to give him when you consider that he knew thoroughly they had nothing for him.
“Kwame in an interview explained that these film makers were best coming to visit him to take pictures for social media clout this is why he prevented them from coming. When he spoke I understood him because our people are evil and hypocrites. They claimed they wanted to present him cash, what cash? It is this foolishness that gets me angry. What cash do you have to provide him?” he asked.
