Joseph Nana Osei Kofi, popularly known as Wayoosi in Kumawood circles is said to be alive, contrary to circulating reports of him being dead.
According to Viasat1 News, Wayoosi is in a critical condition and on admission at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.
A close friend to the actor has also emerged to rubbish the news of his death and revealed that Wayoosi is still alive but very sick.
He said, “It shocking to him to hear this bad news being reported by some bloggers whereas he is alive."
A similar rumour emerged in 2013 that suggested that Wayoosi's leg had been amputated, while another story claimed he was dead, forcing the actor to come out to deny the rumours.
It is still unknown what illness the actor is severely suffering from but rumours have it that Wayoosi is under a curse while others believe his bloated stomach is as a result of a kidney disease.
Wayoosi who is 40 years old has been married for 8 years and recently welcomed a baby girl.
