Kohwe who lives in the Ablekuma West constituency tells me of his joy to have entertained Ghanaians back in the days and holds no regret quitting his job at the foreign affairs ministry in 1965 to do comedy.
I had a hearty conversation with the one time vibrant man. I assured him to hold on to life and be hopeful as some of us will continue to support and allow God to do his part. Ablekuma West da m’akoma so. You matter to meY’abr3 anka y’ad”
