Ghana has been thrown into a state of shock and sorrow following reports of the passing of Kumasi-based actor Bishop Bernard Nyarko.
News of his sudden demise was confirmed by musician, ace radio presenter and DJ, Andy Dosty.
He said God was taking him through a punishment.
“Oh Lord, I don’t want to believe you’re gone. God be with you my friend,” an Instagram post by Andy Dosty read Saturday evening.
The cause of Bishop Nyarko’s death is currently unknown. But Information gathered by Manuelnewsgh.com reveals that he was receiving treatment at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital for colon cancer.
Former Manager of Lilwin – Zack Gh in an interview with Kobby Kyei touched on how Kumawood actor Benard Nyarko passed away. According to Zack Gh, he recently got in touch with the man of God who even prayed for him. He said upon hearing the news, he called the late’s brother, and he was told Benard had died at Ridge Hospital. Zack further said Benard’s brother who was with him at the time he passed away, said the celebrated actor has really suffered.
Exactly a month ago, he was reported to have said he has quit acting and nothing will make him rescind the decision.
He became a full-time pastor to spread the word of God and win souls for his Maker. According to reports, the actor ditched acting for the gospel after he was hit with an unknown illness.
Bishop Nyarko, in a viral video was heard telling his congregation that he has decided to follow the steps of actor Majid Michelle, stressing that the movie industry is full of evil.
“I have stopped because it’s full of evil. Every day, you would meet different people; every day, you would see different girls. All of them want you to become their friends and some of them are coming from the marine sea, they should take their movie,” he said.
Few months ago Bishop Bernard Nyarko made it clear that he is no more into acting after suffering from a sickness ( he stated that the Kumawood is full of evils ) and hence he’s into full time Ministry.
