The late Kumawood actor, a month ago was reported to have said he has quit acting and nothing will make him rescind the decision when he was struck with the illness.
Bishop Nyarko, in a viral video sighted by RazzNews.com, was heard telling his congregation that he has decided to follow the steps of actor Majid Michelle, emphasising that the movie industry is full of evil.
His comment did not go down well with most of his colleague actors. Popular actress and host of United Showbiz on UTV; Nana Ama McBrown who was also not enthused with the late actor’s proclamation vented her spleen on her show.
Per Nana Ama Mcbrown’s explanation, the late Bishop was just envious of how Majid Michelle was traveling around the world as a pastor hence the decision to also quit acting.

To augment that report, Nana Ama McBrown reacting to the demise of the late actor accentuated that, they had made several efforts to visit him at the hospital but all proved unproductive.
She indicated that Bishop Bernard Nyarko kept making up excuses on why they should hold on and at the appropriate time, they will be given an opportunity to visit him.
The hostess of United Showbiz said they were waiting for a response so they could pay their colleague a visit only to hear of his demise.
RazzNews.com is reliably informed that Nana Ama Mcbrown’s swipe against the late actor was one of the utmost motives he never desired to meet them. The late versatile actor really felt break faith with the action of his colleague.
