Practicing medical doctor at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi and General Secretary to the Ghana Medical Association, Dr. Frank Serebour has advised personalities in the showbiz industry to place priority on their health than concentrating more on their busy schedules aimed at making money.
Speaking on the recent passing of showbiz personalities due to cardiac arrest and pressure, Dr. Serebour in an interview with NY DJ on the Kapital Entertainment Unplugged Show on Kapital Radio disclosed although everyone is prone to the disease due to unhealthy practices, personalities in the entertainment industry stand a higher risk due to exposure to excessive fumes they inhale during night club sessions, alcohol intake, late and bad eating habits among many other reasons.
The doctor who was so enthused to be carrying such an education on an entertainment based show continued to explain that due to the demanding nature of the industry, many musicians are into illegal drugs which also facilitate the process of the quick killer. He has therefore advised people in the industry to go for regular checkups, take times to rest and must be very wary of their eating habits.
In recent times, Ronnie Coaches, a former of the hiplife group Buk Bak passed away due to cardiac arrest and same has been said about the passing of Ghanaian actor and producer Eric Asante.
