Veteran actor, Prince Yawson popularly known as Waakye, has disclosed that he is not active as an actor like he used to be in the past.
The actor cum-director told Prince Kwesi Dadzie aka Mr Handsome that, ‘’I am still working as an actor. But, I do not stand in front of the camera like I did in the past.’’
Giving the reason for this decision, the actor said, ‘’my strength is as compared to the past,’’ he said in a proverbial manner.
When he was asked to explain his proverbial statement he said, ‘’I a m saying, the bible has directed us to be guarded in our utterances and I do not want to say anything that will affect me negatively. I will like to repeat that, my strength today is more than it was in the past so I am no longer in front of the camera like before.’’
Mr Yawson stressed he only works actively when ‘’my strength is more, but when my strength is less, I do not act’’.
He took a swipe at the media for not exhibiting circumspection when discussing stories about celebrities and only engage in sensationalism even when these stories affect the person involved negatively.
He said, ’I sometimes wonder why the media tries to dig into people. When people give answers in a proverbial way, they refuse to decode the information and go ahead to dig more so the person will say the things in the way they want. That is not a good practice. Sometimes you have to accept answers in the way they are given.’’
When asked about his health, the actor said he is well by the grace of God and on the claims that he was unwell and needed financial assistance; the actor expressed worry and declined to comment on the story.
According to him, he does not want to discuss any issues bothering on his health because that is a matter between him and God.
‘’I usually do not respond to certain issues. I am not used to responding to every issue I am confronted with. This is because; God loves me more than any other individual. He loves me because what happened to me was between me and my God. What happened to me; it was only God who I have to be grateful to,’’ he concluded.
