The family of Kumawood actor Bishop Bernard Nyarko has denied claims by Nana Ama McBrown that she tried to visit the late colleague while he was sick.
According to the family, McBrown never tried to reach Bishop Nyarko or his mother as she had claimed.
As it is already known, Bishop Nyarko passed away at the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge) Hospital on Saturday, May 2, 2020.
The gigantic actor had been battling cancer of the colon for some time and had been going in and out of hospital for treatment.
Following the news of his passing, many of his Kumawood colleagues lamented how they had been refused access to the actor by his mother.
Star actress McBrown who was hosting her United Showbiz programme indicated that she had tried to reach him and arrange a visit but she was told to hold on for the appropriate time.
In her own words, McBrown claimed to have spoken to Bishop Nyarko's family who told her to wait.
But in their latest interview, the family has stated that no such call came from Nana Ama McBrown.
Speaking on Vision 1 FM as sighted by YEN.com.gh, one of the relatives who was described as the late actor's brother stated that Bishop Nyarko's mother was devastated when she heard McBrown's claim.
"Nana Ama said something on TV and I was saddened when I heard her saying that she called Bishop for a visit but was refused.
"When I told our mother about what McBrown said, she broke down in tears and I had to console and encourage her to take heart."
The brother made the statement while lamenting on how people who were close to him, including those who were benefitting from his kindness, neglected the man in times of his sickness.
On his part, Bishop Nyarko's elder brother, Isaac Darko, pointed out that people should get to know all the sides to information before making judgments as wrongful judgments could incur the wrath of God.
He maintained that it was Bishop Nyarko's decision not to allow visitors and neither he nor his mother could have done anything about it.
Meanwhile, a poster for the one-week observance of Bishop Nyarko has been released on social media.
The poster confirms the May 9 date as previously reported by YEN.com.gh.
Earlier, Bishop Nyarko's elder brother disclosed how the ceremony was going to be organised.
Speaking in an interview with SVTV and sighted by YEN.com.gh, he indicated that in adherence to the social distancing rules, both ceremonies will largely be held privately.
In the video, Isaac Darko pleaded with the many fans of his brother who would have loved to be part of the one-week ceremony to bear with them and stay home and observe on social media.
For those who would still want to attend, brother Darko stated that their time on the one-week grounds was going to be limited.
