The news about his death was sighted by YEN.com.gh in a report by Graphic.com.gh.

His death came exactly two weeks after his wife died.

He was said to have taken ill and become dehydrated after that bad experience, and was taken to the Ridge Hospital.

Further tests conducted on him showed he was suffering from kidney issues and so he was referred to Korle Bu.

Dadson was also recovering from a stroke he suffered for eight years, and so, all that while, he was confined to a wheelchair.

Some Ghanaians have reacted to Dadson's news and are so emotional.

Ekow, Michael, and Oyo wished Kojo a peaceful rest:

Esikyri thanked Kojo for making her childhood lively with his craft:

Kevmaster was shocked:

Graham wept:

Osei was so sad to hear the sad news:

Richard's heart was broken:
