It has been exactly two weeks since Kumawood actor Bishop Bernard Nyarko passed away at the Ridge Hospital in Accra on Saturday, May 9, 2020.
Since Bishop Nyarko's death, a lot of matters have arisen concerning his private life and more keep coming up day-in-day-out.
The latest about the late actor to come up is that he had two other children who were virtually unknown to his family prior to his death.
Following his death, it had been widely reported in the media that Bishop Nyarko had three children, a boy and two girls.
As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, the boy, Gideon Kankam Nyarko, who was the eldest had completed Sunyani Technical University. The second-born was a nursing school graduate while the last born was in secondary school.
But according to Bishop Nyarko's mother, Yaa Konadu, two other children of her son have surfaced following his unfortunate passing.
In a recent interview on Adom TV, Madam Konadu revealed that Bishop Nyarko had told her about one of the children, a four-year-old boy, when she flew from London to take care of him.
"I only knew him to have three children until I returned from London and he told me he had been a bad son and that he has a child who lives in Kumasi and that he had even named him after me. I then told him I couldn’t reject my grandchild, so he together with me went looking for his son. The boy is just 4 years old," she said.
On the other child, Madam Konadu indicated that it was an 18-year-old who came around just before the late actor's one-week observance on May 9, 2020.
"Just before the one week celebration too, an 18-year-old girl also appeared, saying she is daughter to my late son. I was a bit confused till I remembered how he wanted to inform me about it, but claimed he was scared. The child looked like one of his siblings so I have accepted all the five children and will take care of them," she added.
