Ghanaian Actress Soraya Mensah’s Dad Laid To Rest – VIDEO

Godson Mensah, the late father of actress Soraya Mensah, was laid to rest after a funeral ceremony at Haatso, a suburb of Accra, over the weekend.

Godson died on June 15, 2020 at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital where he was receiving treatment for an unconfirmed ailment. He was 83 and is survived by 15 children.

He was buried at the Gethsemane cemetery at East Legon on Saturday after the funeral. Subsequently, his memorial and thanksgiving service was held at the Ernest Bruce Memorial Church at Adabraka on Sunday.

In her final tribute to the dad, Soraya wrote, “It was a blessing being your nurse as you will call me. Taking care of you while you were ill was a blessing to me daddy, loved doing everything for you. Even though we fought a few occasions because you did not understand why your young daughter will be controlling you. I only wanted the best for you, I observed you so much and learnt a lot about your illness and medications I almost always knew what you needed at each point. Watching you suffer so much was the hardest thing, you were in so much pain.

I haven’t had good sleep in a long time. I will always wake up at night believing you needed my help and each time I was right. I went to bed believing it was the last time I will see you but you fought hard daddy … I admire your strength.. Dad you are a great man, you never failed us nor the world know that for sure. My hero, my king, my protector, my adviser , my silver pimp as people called you and my daddy I will always love you and I will make sure I continue the good you did on this earth. Rest well daddy and continue to shine. We need you but God needs you most. Rest in perfect peace.”

Your love n care for me all started when I was born, u fought for my life from my first day on this earth when u insisted that I was not born dead as the doctor claimed ..you pushed the doctor to do all he can till I began to cry,you never gave up and I thank you for that. You would shout Sooooraaaaaayaa !!! And I will respond daadddddyy!!!, like we were singing , we would call each other sometimes for no reason .I was your little princess, you loved to carry me everywhere and showed me off to all your friends, you will always ask me to wear the finest cloths to look my best. You will tell me always to walk n look confident, don’t bend your back, stand up straight with ur chest out , u will say .No wonder I do so now when I do any presentation for a contract. We had a lot in common, we both love music , dance, working hard n most important money. Oh my dance partner, who will dance with me ?who will I sit and listen to good music with? .. Dad I miss your long conversations. I will miss your advises, hmmm who will I complain about my workers too , who will advise me about my business .. you really contributed to all that I am today. The treatment I give my workers is as a results of your teachings. People tell me Soraya I know you will do as you have said bcos you won’t promise and fail n all I will say is my dad taught me so. I remember how you will always give me everything I wanted and even when you said no I will stand behind my door and count bcos I knew you will come back and give me what I wanted in no time .. you will say Soraya I wish can give you everything you need so no one will ever bluff you. I loved every bit of being one of your favorites as you never hid that from anyone. In all of this you still taught me to work hard , never to cheat anyone and to always be honest and kind. What an admirable Father, I grew up feeling so proud each time bcos everyone had something good to say about you. You went through so much, It was a blessing being your nurse as you will call me. Taking care of you whiles you were ill was a blessing to me Daddy,loved doing everything for you. Love u daddy .. rest well daddy
