Deepest of condolences to the family of veteran Ghanaian actor, Mr. Frimpong Manso popularly known as ‘Osofo Dadzie’ on his demise.
‘Osofo Dadzie’ became a household name in Ghana particularly in the 70s and early 80s as a result of the very interesting role played by Mr. Frimpong Manso, the lead character in that popular television drama series.
It was the captivating role he played in that television series which earned him the sobriquet, ‘Osofo Dadzie’, which he would answer to for the rest of his beautiful life.
I remember my encounter with him, on my rounds, in the run up to the 2016 elections. He was still witty and lively.
We will miss him dearly.
May his soul rest in peace.
