Popular Ghanaian actor, King Aboagye Brenya has died.
According to his family, he died on Thursday, September 30, 2021, at the County Hospital at Abrepo in Kumasi after he was rushed to the facility for treatment.
The 82-year-old had been incapacitated for the past six years, and as such has been out of the Ghanaian movie scene. Following the news of his passing, some actors and producers have visited his home at Bohyen to commiserate with the family.
According to the President of the Film Producers Association of Ghana, James Aboagye,
“King Aboagye Brenya affectionately called Nana or King was one of the pioneers in the film industry when it comes to the Kumawood fraternity. He was among those who accepted the challenge to battle their colleagues in Accra for roles, despite the latter’s vast experience in the industry. He progressed very well and starred in popular and iconic movies like Kumasi Yonkoo, Asem, Odasanii. Nigerian film producers noticed his acting skill and invited him to Nigeria for movies through Mr. Samuel Nyamekye of Miracle Films. He fell sick about six years ago, and he did not fully recover and has been on the sick bed until late afternoon today, Wednesday, 30th September 2021”.
