He stated that people should not wait till he dies before they decide to give money to his family, but rather, they should show him their kind gesture while he was still alive.
Few weeks before his death, some pictures of him circulated online which showed the actor looking very sick.
In a self-recorded video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Instagram, DKB was heard saying that he did not expect the veteran actor to spend the upkeep money he received from Dr Bawumia.
According to him, spending the upkeep money would push him to beg for more once the money gets finished.
DKB said instead of spending the money, he should rather invest it into a lucrative business that would yield returns for him.
