Just yesterday morning, I wanted to make a post on social media asking how many people remembered the advert, ‘Quench Walayi’ which was one of the most popular TV commercials growing up in Ghana. Little did I do that later that day, veteran Ghanaian actor, Solomon Sampah who starred in the TVC would pass away.
Emmanuel Sampah, brother of the late actor, told Myjoyonline.com that Solomon complained his health had deteriorated Friday. He said the actor, had not been well for the past three months. His body has been deposited at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital Mortuary.
Solomon is well known for the popular Original Hacks commercial and has starred in several movies including ‘Foul Play’, ‘Queen’s Bride’, ‘Owuo Safoa’, and ‘Ultimate Paradise’ television series. He was survived by a wife and eight children – four males and four females. Solomon Sampah, born in James Town, British Accra, would have turned 71 on February 14.
