RIP- Ghana mourns Veteran actor Nii Odoi Menseh who died in China.

It came as a shock to the Ghanaian movie industry when the death of veteran actor, Nii Odoi Mensah, was announced. According to Starfm Online, the former President of the Ghana Actors Guild reportedly underwent a kidney transplant in China on Monday, April 11, but he suddenly passed away. 

The transplant was said to have been made possible through popular actress, Juliet Ibrahim, through her foundation. Sadly, the veteran could not come back to show appreciation to those who supported him. Speaking to KMJ on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Ghanaian film producer, Socrate Safo said Nii Odoi was living on dialysis in Ghana but went to China upon hearing of a hospital which could treat him. 

“I spoke to Nii almost every day except yesterday because I had lots of meetings… Before he went to China, he told me he had heard of a hospital there which could treat him and they needed about $10,000. We all did our part by contributing but when he got there, he realised he would need more than the said amount because he needed more treatment. I remember he called to request for about $26,000. We solicited for support and all that,” he said.

 “Three days ago, we had a conversation and I told him I will update him on certain things I had to do for him. I couldn’t call. I woke up today, checked ASOG board platform and Abeiku Sagoe had posted there that he had passed on. I called Nii, he didn’t answer so I sent him a message hoping he responds. And I pray he responds,” Socrate Safo added. May his soul rest in peace.
