Veteran Ghanaian actor, Emmanuel Kojo Dadson, has died at age 68, at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital where he had been on admission for some time.
Emmanuel Kojo Dadson died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Tuesday, February 9, while undergoing dialysis for kidney issues.
Kojo Dadson, who gained fame for his role in productions such as Home Sweet Home had been recovering from a stroke he suffered in 2012 and which kept him wheelchair-bound for eight years.
His brother, PaJohn Bentsifi Dadson, well known on the arts and entertainment scene said he died exactly two weeks after his beloved wife passed away.
According to PaJohn, his brother suddenly became weak a week ago and was dehydrated. He was admitted at the Ridge Hospital where he was put on drips and they run several tests on him.
He said the doctors diagnosed him with kidney issues and recommended dialysis. He went for his first dialysis session on Tuesday at Korle Bu but unfortunately passed on.
