Popular Kumawood actor, Komfo Kolegae, could not control his tears at the final funeral rites for his late wife, Millicent Oteng.
The final funeral rites and burial service took place today, Saturday, December 17, 2022, at the Tabere school park in the Ashanti region.
At the funeral grounds, the actor was seen weeping bitterly in public when friends and sympathizers were paying their last respect to his late wife.
The sight was one that was hard to watch taking into account how strong Kolagae is widely perceived to be.
As things stand now, it is expected that a thanksgiving service in honour of Kolagae late wife will be held on Sunday, December 18, 2022, at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, Ohwimase after the funeral and burial today.
Earlier this month, the actor known in private life as Collins Oteng, lost his wife while she was pregnant. Miss Millicent died while delivering her baby at the hospital.
Colleague actor, Oteele, confirmed the sad news when he said “Our brother’s wife is dead. Kolege’s wife is dead. She was going to give birth. God rest her soul. I was listening to Hello FM on Saturday where I first heard the news of Kolege’s wife’s death, I was so shocked”.
In an interview with Ghanaian blogger Zionfelix, he added that “now I’m in Kumasi. I just came from his house to confirm and its true. The family confirmed. Before that, I went to the lady’s house at Koforidua Tabre together with Otele and it was a sad scene”.
According to Oteele, Kolege has been inconsolable as he has been struck with two huge loses (his wife and child).
“Kolege is inconsolable. His wife died in the labour ward, together with the baby when they went to give birth. His wife was a nurse and he loved her so much. There is a saying that men don’t cry but my brother has cried his eyes out. We pray God consoles him. If you know him, kindly call him and console him,” he emphasised.
