Veteran Ghanaian actor, Kohwe, known in private life as Kofi Laing has passed on.
He died aged 75 on Thursday, September 16, 2021.
His daughter, Comfort Laing, confirmed the passing of the veteran actor.
It was recently reported that he had suffered a stroke and was undergoing treatment.
Two years ago, Kohwe spoke about his financial challenges in a passionate appeal where he urged leaders of the country and the public to support old actors who through their gifts brought laughter and eased tension in many homes.
He added, the living condition of some of the veterans who worked hard to bring smiles to the faces of Ghanaians was nothing to write home about.
Kohwe said some of his colleagues died as paupers in sorrow because there was no support for them.
He, therefore, urged Ghanaians to help him while he was alive and not wait till he died before showing him love, support and pay him glowing tributes.
His appeal received a positive response from former Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Barbara Oteng Gyasi, and others who went to his aid donating monies and other items to him.
Kohwe is known for his sterling roles in the Akan Drama series and the popular TV series ‘District Colonial Court.’
