Waakye roamed through three hospitals, according to Diabolo, before finding a bed for treatment.

The accounts provided by certain people close to the late actor Prince Yawson, alias Waakye, before his death, have been confirmed by veteran actor Bob Smith Jnr, also known as Diabolo. 

According to reports, Waakye passed away on Tuesday between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. after being taken the previous night by ambulance to Accra's 37 Military Hospital. 

Waakye is said to have fought for his life even before being admitted to the hospital as attempts to find him a bed in certain capital-area hospitals proved fruitless. 

Waakye was rushed to Ridge Hospital, but due to a shortage of beds, he was transferred to the 37 Military Hospital, according to veteran actress Grace Omaboe, also known as Maame Dokono. 

Diabolo was the most recent to respond to the tragic news, and he too blamed Waakye's demise on the "no bed syndrome" at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital and the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital (Ridge Hospital). 

He explained: "Waakye had been sick, but he got a little better and was coping, then he had an episode on Monday night. 

"The family finally transported him to the 37 Military Hospital where, after much wrangling, they were able to acquire him a bed after trying in vain to secure one for him at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge Hospital). 

"He was so restless that night, and on Tuesday afternoon he finally passed away. He said, "I shall really miss him. He was such a humble person. 

Waakye struggled with stroke for a very long time and had therapy in and out of the hospital. 

Diabolo claimed he almost passed out upon hearing the tragic news.
