Veteran actor Prince Yawson who made a name for himself in the ‘Obra’ series as Waakye and as Chemu’s master in TV3’s popular comedy series ‘Chorkor Trotro’ has earned a theological degree to become a preacher man.
Waakye according to reports graduated from the Accra campus of My Life Theological University (USA) and its now fit to be called Rev. Prince Yawson although some folks mischievously opt for Rev. Waakye. Waakye being the Ghanaian dish of cooked rice and beans eaten for breakfast, lunch or supper.
According to the seasoned film and series practitioner, he’s been given pointers to enter ministry over the years including being told by pastors that he had the calling of God to do ministry work prompting his enrollment into the bible school.
Waakye has been plagued by ill health recently. It’s therefore heartwarming to see him doing well. Blakkpepper wishes him good fortune.
