Ghanaian comedian Yaw Donkor popularly known as Nkomode has passed away today, February 5 after battling kidney, liver problems and bladder failure due to excessive drinking.

Fellow actor Akwasi Boadi aka Akrobeto confirmed the news this afternoon on Accra based Hitz FM.

According to him, the comedian who is well known for his major role on popular TV comedy programme, "Key Soap Concert Party", died at a hospital where he was admitted after kidney, liver problems and bladder failure.

In 2015, Nkomode was reportedly bedridden due to kidney, liver problems and bladder failure.

His bladder problem was so bad that he urinated more than 15 times day.

The Comedian started drinking while he was abroad, growing a pot belly in the process and other drinking-related complications.

However, doctors saved him. But he picked up heavy drinking again after his return to Ghana.

Nkomode explained that money coming from the Ghanaian movie industry, coupled with seizure of his house by his wife plunged him once again into the bottle.

The comedian also blamed his condition on subtle animosity he faced in the movie industry.

He explained that he decided to come to Ghana after fellow actor Akrobeto and a few friends convinced him to return to do movies because comedy was losing its shine.

Nkomode once beat Original 32 in 1997 to retain the best "Key Soap Concert Party" title and Agya Koo in 1998.
