Veteran actor, Kofi Laing, famously known as Kowhe, has revealed that life has been difficult for him and that he can’t even bear the cost of a car tire since his popularity in the movie industry has disappeared.
The actor also said he used to work with the Foreign Affairs Ministry in 1965 before venturing into acting years later.
When asked of his wealth acquired through comedy on Adom FM’s Work and Happiness show, he said “I cannot even boast of a car tyre despite my years of service with the Foreign Affairs Ministry as well as the film industry.”
According to Kohwe, he made very little from ‘Akan Drama’ series and the industry as a whole because his aim was to exhibit his talent but not to pursue wealth.
“Filming is something I do with passion, I don’t regret acting because I would have been dead by now as a result of sorrow and depression,” he said.
The 75-year-old actor appealed to the public for financial assistance as he is financially handicapped at the moment.
