Feb 6, 2015 – Yvonne Nelson’s ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ Movie Star, Kwaku Dead, Actress Says She’s Heartbroken

Gallywood actress Yvonne Nelson is not a happy woman at the moment.

Today, she lost the main character of her new movie, If Tomorrow Never Comes.

The upcoming movie is centered around Kwaku, a little boy battling cerebral retardation.

Yvonne Nelson told fans Kwaku died today in Accra Ghana few days after she wrapped up the project.

In her words:

“Had the amazing and eye opening opportunity to film with this child in his challenging condition…unable to talk or walk, cerebrally deformed and yet with a glow that can pierce any heart…His mother blatantly refused to poison him as her family demanded and stuck with her guts to give him a chance at life. I have known the treasure of raising kids…the joy they bring and emptiness life can be without them and so when I met this child through the Luckie Lawson Foundation and Initiative, I decided his story could and should be told…this forms the premise for an Yvonne Nelson Productions film, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’… it is therefore heartrending to note that Kwaku, this said child, 2 weeks after shoot just passed away in an Accra hospital..He required no greater honour than at least living to share a part of his story with the world. GOD bless your hearts Luckie Lawson Foundation, Yvonne Nelson Productions… Kwaku lives on!!”

Yvonne Nelson heartbroken..

“This lil angel I have in my arms is the reason why I shot ‘IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES’, he inspired a huge part of the story. I heard about him 2years ago from @luckielawson. I sat down with Pascal Amanfo and we decided to get a script ready…..after 2years I decided one morning I was ready to shoot…so we scheduled everything….wrapped up 2 weeks ago on the 25th of January only to get a call this afternoon about my lil angel’s death. He was suffering from a cerebral malformation, he could not sit, stand, walk or even talk…..

I asked myself one evening on set, what if a mosquito bites him, who will even scratch it for him, I’ve been crying throughout this afternoon. I’m heartbroken. Life is too sad. R.I.P my angel”.

Very painful!

  1. Words and actions have meanings people. Just take another look at the title of the movie. It says it all.
    World would be a better place if we all dwell in the word of our God rather than unwisely continuously chasing the money and fame…

  2. I came across this news on social media but can’t figure out exactly what they were saying; though my mind wasn’t in attention; nw I came across same news;nw I pictured out what’s all about.. I really shade tears; so heart touching.. Indeed ‘What if tomorrow never comes’ this should always be in our mind at every point in time of our daily lives.. May God take control.. RIP @Kwaku and enjoy endless life and happy moment in God’s arm..

  3. Dis is one of those news u hear & ur heart would jst overflood. If Tomorrow Never Comes. Yvonne Nelson is quite prescient here; she appears 2 hav read d future of dat poor child. May God com4t evry hrt dat grievs on dis account! Dis world is not a home.

  4. You knew he has that condition yet you went ahead to stress him and probably did little to assist him after d wrap up of ur movie or even when u find out his state of health what was ur contribution RIP

  5. A touching story n d child looks so cheerful. He is in a better place now, where he would feel no more pain, but will walk n talk and do everything that he was supposed to do. God bless his soul. To the family n dear Yvonne, Kwaku is safe in God’s hands, take heart n God bless u all.

  6. I have also shade tears like u Yvonne nelson, surely “if tomorrow never comes” today u might be in terrible condition and tomorrow u are happi again. may God bless his family
