The young boy who inspired the story in Yvonne Nelson’s new movie ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ has died. According to the actress, she met Kweku, who was suffering from cerebral malformation 2 years ago and decided to tell his story.
Nelson did not only tell the story, but included the young boy in her cast for the movie. Two weeks after the shoot, the actress said she received a call informing her that little Kweku has passed on.
Ghanaian director, Pascal Amanfo, took to his Instagram page to pay tribute to the late kid, child actor behind Yvonne Nelson’s new movie production “If Tomorrow Never Comes” and also reveal him as the inspiration behind the upcoming movie.
“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 @luckielawson foundation and initiative, i decided his story could and should be told…
“This forms the premise for a @ynproductionsghfilm…IfTomorrowNeverComes…
“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 @luckielawson..@yvonnenelsongh…Kwaku lives on!!” – He shared.
May his soul rest in peace. Amen!
