Veteran actor, Kofi Laing, popularly known as Kowhe, has revealed that life has been unbearable for him and that he cannot even afford a car tyre since his fame in the movie industry has waned.

He said he worked with the Foreign Affairs Ministry in 1965 and moved into cinematography 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.
