Bishop Bernard Nyarko's son, Gideon Kankam Nyarko has defended actress Nana Ama McBrown over accusations that she neglected Bishop Nyarko when he was sick.
As it has been widely reported, 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 the family denied the claims McBrown that she tried to visit the late colleague while he was sick.
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.
However, in a new twist, Bishop Nyarko's son has stated that McBrown did not lie about calling as earlier suggested.
Appearing in on Adom TV with his father's elder brother, Isaac Darko, revealed that McBrown had been eager to visit his father and had called on many occasions.
"I have one clarification to make. If you want one person who was calling very often, the person who was so keen on coming to see my father, it is McBrown. That is all I have to say about that," he said.
Answering a question on whether McBrown sent any financial assistance to his father, Gideon Nyarko stated that he was not aware of that but maintained that Mcbrown had called regularly.
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.
