Veteran actor, William Addo known popularly as Akpatse has detailed the challenges he has been facing since retiring from the Ghana movie industry.

Respected as one of the pioneers of the film industry in the 90s and early 2000s, William is famed for his roles in movies like Death After Birth, Chronicles of Odumkrom: The Headmaster,
Children of the Mountain and GTV Thursday Theatre.

In a special report produced by Citi TV, titled ‘Untold Stories of Veteran Actors’, William got candid about the struggles he has been through since going totally blind 5 years ago.

Speaking in the interview, William who lives at Tefle in the Volta Region, revealed that he has no electricity in his house because he owes ECG over 5,000 cedis.

“Occasionally, there are other ailments that come into play. Last time, I was rushed to the hospital for cardiac arrest and had to spend 6 days there. It was not easy at all because I almost went (died) just like that” he further added.

Through the interview, Akpatse appealed to the public to support him to start a corn mill business (known locally as nika-nika), which according to him, will provide a sustainable source of income to fund his medical bills.
