You may remember him as Kadeem in Love Don’t Cost a Thing (2003) but his close friends called him Sam Sarpong.
The London-born actor died sometime this week, according to an Instagram post his fellow acting-mate Meagan Good shared today on Instagram.
To you Sam .. You are one of the most genuine, kind, enthusiastic, hopeful, uplifting beings.. One of the sweetest human beings that I’ve had the pleasure to know. Thank you for being #Light wherever you went.. That is the way everyone will remember you ✨ Love you and will miss you Fam #RestInParadise #SamSarpong 🙏🏾
