Veteran TV personality, George Laing has debunked all claims that he is a brother of the late veteran actor Kofi Laing as reported by some news outlets.
In a recent press release, the 'Kyekyekule' star urged Ghanaians to ignore speculations going on that he is a brother of the late actor who passed away last week after an illness.
Read the statement below:
Following the unfortunate and untimely demise of veteran actor Kofi Laing also known as Kohwe, certain falsehoods have been peddled by some media house about myself and my relationship with the deceased.
Among others, it has been alleged that he was my brother whom I neglected during his illness.
I would like to state categorically that, Kofi Laing was not my brother, neither was he related to me in any way.
Also, I had no financial or other obligations towards him. Neither does he possess shares in the school which is owned by my siblings and I, as has been alleged in other circles.
I would like to take this opportunity to extend my condolences to the family of Kofi Laing.
It is my hope that, some of the media houses currently engaged in the needless sensationalism would channel their efforts into celebrating the rich body of work Kofi left behind.
