Ghanaian actor Prince Yawson, known in showbiz circles as ‘Waakye’, has spoken about how he supposedly died but later came back to life, thanking God for giving him another opportunity.

Speaking to broadcast journalist, Kofi Adoma Wawani, he emotionally narrated a recent near-death ordeal. He admitted he was basically deceased and only made it out of the jaws of death due to a timely divine intervention.

“We had gone for rehearsals to prepare for the Ghana at 60 celebrations. When we closed and I got home, I started feeling uncomfortable. I woke up at dawn but didn’t look at the time. I realized my heart was beating and was sweating profusely which I hadn’t encountered before so I was worried.

Mr Yawson mentioned that moment was not easy for him at all, especially when he didn't know what was happening to him.

Recounting “I decided then to come out and enjoy fresh air but the pain kept increasing, sensing I was alone I quizzed myself: ‘Why don’t I step outside, so that should I die, people may find my body outside here rather than die in my room.

“When I stepped out the pressure was still mounting, the pain in my chest was excruciating, beating very fast. Still sweating, I drove my car in pursuit of help or anything that can ease the pain I was going through, I thought of buying coconut juice and the only thing I was wearing was a track suit. I sat in car and drove to buy some myself, to my amazement there was still traffic on my route.

The father of  2 explained that, when he got to the coconut seller, he bought 2 and drank the juice but was still not feeling well and so he relaxed on the heap of coconut behind the seller, feeling helpless at that moment, he  said “The coconut seller then held my hands and told me we should go to the hospital, we went to the Trust Hospital at Osu and I must admit the nurses did a great job and I commend the coconut seller, he stood beside me till I was discharged.

“I was in pain at the hospital from midnight till morning and I knew death had come. I lost my breath, and I knew my end had come," the scriptwriter revealed.
