Experienced Ghanaian actor, Prince Yawson known in the world of showbiz as Waakye has indicated in an exclusive interview that it is only his fiancée who has helped him financially.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on myjoyonline.com, the actor indicated that it was only the woman in his life that tried to raise funds for him when he was very ill.
While speaking in an interview with veteran journalist Doreen Avio, Waakye said that no one donated money into the mobile money account put out by his partner during a radio interview.
Waakye went on to reveal that he had personally not made any move to solicit for funds for himself but it only happened after his partner granted an interview to one radio station.
During the said radio interview, Waakye's fiancée was made to put out a momo number on which benevolent individuals could send money to in support of the bedridden actor.
Unfortunately, the comic actor said no one donated since he did not receive any momo alert on the number.
After expressing his disappointment over the development, Waakye said if anyone had given money to anyone on his behalf, he is yet to receive it.
“If people are putting mobile money accounts out for me, fine, but I have not received a dime from anybody. So everyone must know that if anyone is receiving money on my behalf, then they are keeping it,” he said.
He also told Doreen Avio that anytime he is asked if he needs money, he only asks people to remember him in prayers.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that reports going round on social media had it that Waakye was being held up at a health facility over some unpaid bills.
According to the reports, the comic actor's medical bills had piled up so much that he was finding it difficult to settle them.
A social media user on Instagram by name @iamphylxgh made this known in a post after he shared a photo of the actor on a sickbed.
