Just a week after burying his late mother, Ghanaian stage actor, Obed Nii Armah popularly known as Ronny Nii Armah has passed on.
The vibrant, hilarious and energetic stage actor did not die because of sickness but drowned at the Laboma Beach near La Pleasure beach on the Republic holiday, July 3, 2017, according to ghanaweb.
Ronny known for his roles as ‘Woyome’ in Scribe Productions “This Family Is Not For Sale Season 1 and 2”, and “I Want To Sue God”, soared to fame with his unique display of art.
The actor was swimming with friends when he encountered difficulties and went under the rough waters. He died shortly after being pulled from the water.
He is remembered by friends as a young, strong and talented man.
“We are very heart broken. We really had plans of doing lots of projects together. Well. All we can say is, “God knows best.” May his good soul rest well. We have lost such a talent! Hmmm”, Kobina Ansah, CEO for Scribe Productions told Ghanaweb in an interview.
