Stephen Okyere, better known as Kokotii, a popular Kumawood actor who has appeared in over 50 films, has left his fans and most Ghanaians in tears after a photo of him pounding fufu at the chop went viral on the local digital space.
The former movie star was severely hammering fufu for one of Accra’s chop bars in this heartbreaking shot.
After the fall of the movie industry, it is reported that he has gone completely broke and now relies on pounding fufu for chop bars to make ends meet.
Others have questioned what he did with the money he earned from performing during his peak years, since it is alarming to see a celebrity in this situation unable to buy a three-course meal when he once had the world at his hands.
Kokotii rose to prominence in the early 2000s after appearing in films such as Mabre Mo, Abusua Apam, and Efie Nipa.
