Nana Turkson Is Stupid To Have Died – Socrate Sarfo
“Nana Turkson is a stupid boy. So stupid that he will leave us at this time when we need him most and I have been so angry and confused for what he has done. At least he should have given us the slightest indication that he was going to die.”
These are the words of Socrate Sarfo, Director of Creative Arts, Programs and Projects at the National Commission on Culture, as he shared his fond memories about the late entertainment pundit, Nana Turkson.
In an exclusive interview with The Publisher Newpaper during the burial service on Friday, he described the late Nana Turkson as a good and kind person who was always ready to offer a helping hand to those in need.
Socrate, who served on the same board at the Zylofon Arts Fund (ZAF) with the late entertainment pundit, was full of memories of his late colleague.
According to him, “everybody who presented a proposal and was invited on the board will attest to it that even if your proposal is denied Nana Turkson will give you hope for you to come back again.”
The Communication Director for Zylofon Media, Arnold Asamoah Baidoo, also described the late Turkson as one of the best in the entertainment industry.
He said “He had in-depth knowledge in the industry related issues and he was very blunt. He spoke without looking over his shoulders. His kind is rare we do not have the likes of Nana Turkson in the industry.”
Arnold believes no better person can replace the affable pundit and author at the ZAF board.
The late showbiz pundit was laid to rest on Friday, during a private burial which followed a burial service at the St. Luke Anglican Church.
The ceremony was attended by family and friends, as well as showbiz colleagues.
Nana Turkson, 42, died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on August 7, following a short illness.
Until his death, he made regular appearances on entertainment programmes across the country, and also sat on the board of the Zylofon Arts Fund.
He left behind three children; Amanda Turskon, Josephine Turkson, and Bertranda Turskon.
