- Highlife legend, Paapa Yankson died last week at home
- According to the ace musician's son, Silas Yankson, his father was abandoned throughout his sick days till his demise
Ghallywood and Kumawood actor, Clement Bonney, has rejected claims that Highlife legend Paapa Yankson died without receiving enough support.
According to the actor, who is popularly known as Mr Beautiful, the late musician was supported with money as well as other needs from ex-Ghana president John Mahama.
Son of the legendary musician, Silas Yankson earlier alleged that his father received minimum support before passing on.
However, in response, Mr Beautiful quashed those claims, insisting John Mahama did his best to make sure Paapa Yankson was comfortable before his demise.
Speaking on the Starr Drive show, he said: “I read it online and I said this is not correct. This is not true, maybe he [Silas] didn’t know how his father was fed that’s why he came out to say his father was abandoned.
“It’s never true, maybe he [Silas]abandoned his own father because, before the 2016 elections, Former President Mahama sent me several times to visit Paapa Yankson, before he went for his Prostate cancer operation.”
The actor added that Silas Yankson may not have been aware of Mahama’s deeds because the former president wanted to keep things under wraps.
“Honestly, I have been telling His Excellency, daddy; these things that you are doing we need to put it on air but he will say ‘no, I’m doing it for God’. He personally goes round to visit this old age musicians and actors and gives them money from his own pocket for their upkeep….
“You can call Amandzeba and ask him about it, it’s unfortunate because they do it on the low because of the kind of politics in this country.”
