YOLO cast call for financial support for ailing Drogba

Actors Cyril and King George, both renowned for their roles in the acclaimed series YOLO, have joined the plea for funds to aid their fellow actor, Drogba, who is currently battling demyelination.

In a heartfelt video shared on platform X, both actors were captured encouraging Ghanaians to continue their generous donations towards Drogba’s medical treatment.

Desmond Danso Dankyi, better known as King George, passionately urged Ghanaians not to relent in their contributions towards Drogba’s treatment.

“We know you have seen videos of Drogba’s predicament online but we just want to tell you that the battle is not over, it is not even started. We are way far from the quota and we want you to keep donating.

“If the three of us have ever put smiles on your face, this is the moment for you to so something for us in return,” King George appealed.

Aaron Adatsi, popularly known as Cyril from the YOLO series, also revealed plans to launch a comprehensive fundraising campaign to assist their colleague.

“We are going to initiate a proper fund-raising scheme to help our brother so guys don’t stop donating. Let us make sure our brother gets back on his feet. Let’s help our brother in this time of need.”
“For those willing to contribute, donations can be made via Access Bank under the account name John Bredu Peasah, account number 0441628321091, located at the Adjiriganor Branch,” he added.

Drogba, widely recognized as John Bredu Peasah from the YOLO series, has been diagnosed with the life-threatening Demyelinating disease.

Reports indicate that he has been battling this condition for the past two years. Demyelinating disorder damages the protective covering of nerves, leading to issues with vision, movement, and sensation.

News of Drogba’s illness first emerged on social media on March 8, after Ghanaian actor Jeffrey Nortey shared a flyer seeking financial assistance for Drogba’s medical treatment.

Since his condition was made public, Drogba has been undergoing treatment while awaiting surgery, appealing for financial support from Ghanaians.

He has received an outpouring of well wishes from the Ghanaian community, with Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia even paying him a visit to offer support and encouragement during this challenging time.
