A child actor who was featured and played the role as ‘Strika’ in ‘Beast of Nation’ is now a beggar, a Facebook user has disclosed.
The Facebook user, Caleb Nii Boye, a student of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), said, the actor approached and begged him for alms today [Monday].
He was shocked and wondered why an actor who featured in the movie alongside Abraham Attah, who is now a global icon would be begging.
The post by the GIJ student read: ‘’I am sad this morning. I was heading to the Ghana Institute of Journalism campus and I met Striker. You would ask who is Striker? Striker starred in the movie Beast of No Nations. The said film that made Abraham Attah. Today I met him begging for money on the road leading to GIJ. I called him and brought him to campus. Speaking to him he tells me he now works with a gentleman who sells Yam at Agbogbloshie Market. He stays with his grandma at North Kaneshie”.
Meanwhile, he has granted an interview to a number of media houses where he has reportedly stated that, he has benefitted from the $30, 000 he made from shooting the movie.
Social has been awash with comments over the matter with some calling on lawyers to intervene on behalf of the actor who they claim have been cheated.
