Mother of renowned Ghanaian actor Majid Michel, Paulina Olympio, has passed away.
The actor’s mother passed away last Friday, October 10 in Accra after she collapsed and was rushed to the Ghana-Canada Hospital in East Legon, Accra.
It is unclear what might have caused her sudden death, but her remains have been deposited at a funeral home in Laterbiorkoshie in Accra.
Half-brother of the actor, Mico Michel, paid glowing tribute to the late 63-year-old on photo sharing site, Instagram.
He wrote, “In my heart you live forever! Mom, I know you are in a better place now. As we all give thanks to the day, you walked into our lives we knew our family would never have been this strong without you there to guide us and love us the way you did.
You were always there for me, in fact, all of us; nothing was too small or too big for u. Personally, I know the strength and love you gave me in my hardest moments.
You NEVER gave up on me, never judged me even when I made mistakes; but in Love you gave me advice and always told me that no matter the situation you were always there for me and you would say ‘even if monkey no fine im mother love am’.
Such was your love for all your children and beyond. The pride in your eyes as you introduced us all as your children to everyone. Indeed, an ANGEL has gone home.
We will miss you, but NEVER forget you as long as we live. You are an inspiration to us all. Who will call me YAW now? That infectious smile you always had beaming across from your face, Aunt Polina, as I always called you. From Your son, Mico with love,” Mico Michel posted.
Adding, “Forever love, an Angel gone home Auntie Paulina.”
Paulina Olympio was survived by two children, Majid and Isabella.
Majid is currently not in the country.
He is said to be in Paris, France and is expected in Ghana by close of this week.
