After learning from the host of Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, KMJ, that the family of the late Nii Odoi Mensah were unhappy about revelations he made concerning the costs and circumstances surrounding the demise of the respected actor, Socrates Sarfo rendered an apology to the family of the deceased.
The popular movie producer, who is known as a close friend of the former president of the Actors’ Guild, reportedly disclosed that it would cost a total amount of $ 68 000 to bring the remains of the deceased actor home. According to Mr Sarfo, the amount also included the incurred hospital bills of $ 26 000.
Socrates Sarfo said that he wouldn’t want this to create issues between himself and the family as he respects his friend so much. He furthermore added that he understood what it meant for the family to have such information disclosed without them being involved. He didn’t intend to act as the family’s spokesman and wants the fact established that his beloved friend, Nii Odoi Mensah, was not a pauper. However, his apology does not mean that the information was not true. He apologised for being the source of information instead of the family.
