Beasts Of No Nation Producers Enroll ‘Strika’ In School.
After Beasts of No Nation movie hit the cinemas, one child actor who has not gained international recognition, as Abraham Attah is Strika, a child soldier who never spoke in the movie. The young boy who was picked from the streets of Sodom and Gomorrah, a suburb in Accra did not get the shine due him as compared to his colleague, Abraham Attah who has won many international awards. Many who have watched the movie, Beasts Of No Nation eulogized the young actor for his stupendous performance.
All hope is not lost for Strika known in real life as Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye as producers of the Cary Fukunaga directed movie have enrolled him in school. This was revealed when Hitz FM presenter, MzGee interviewed actor Kobina Amissah-Sam who played the role of Agu’s father in the movie “Beasts Of No Nation”.
According to Amissah-Sam, producers of the movie are taking good care of Strika and other casts of the movie.
“They have not been forgotten, they have really been taken care of. They are not lacking now as they used to so everything is cool for them now.
He has never been in school before but after the production, producers of the movie felt that they have to put him in school.
I don’t think that it is Netflix that is taking care of them, it is the producer who wants to help the kids. He is taking care of the three kids, Abraham, Striker and there is one other guy called Justice who stepped on Agu’s head when he was caught.” Kobina Amissah-Sam told Mzgee.
Kobina Amissah-Sam made it clear that owners of the production house, Red Crown Productions LLC who financed the movie are taking care of the young actors not the director of the movie, Cary Joji Fukunaga.
He added that “they felt that why should they leave them to go back to the streets when the movie is shinning somewhere. When people ask about your star Strika then they would have to find him on the street which will not speak well of them.”
He also disclosed that Strika is now signed on a casting agency, which is scouting roles for him. He continued that he has also been signed on the same casting agency with Ghanaian actors like Abraham Attah and Adjetey Annan aka Pusher.
According to info reaching us, Red Crown Productions LLC was founded in 2010 by Daniel Crown and Daniela Taplin Lundberg.
Ebony’s funeral invitation finally out
We have sighted a photo of an invitation card for the funeral of late dancehall act, Ebony Reigns, known in real life as Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, which has started making rounds on social media.
The invitation to the funeral is reportedly coming from the family of the late singer who are expecting a mammoth crowd during the final funeral rites of their late family member.
According to details of the card, family of the late award-winning dancehall act were inviting Ghanaians to partake in the solemn ceremony which is slated for March 24.
The funeral is expected to take place at the forecourt of the State House on Accra with her final resting place going to be the Osu Cemetary.
Not too long ago, father of the ‘Date Ur Fada’ singer, Nana Opoku Kwarteng revealed the official cloth to be used for the funeral of her daughter.
In an interview with Joy News, Mr. Nana Opoku Kwarteng revealed that he had a hard time sleeping, so did some of his family members, especially, Ebony’s sister.
He also used the opportunity to ‘appeal’ for support from well-meaning Ghanaians who wanted to contribute to make Ebony’s funeral a memorable one.
A tribute concert is scheduled to take place on March 23 in honor of the 21-year-old singer in which many artistes have been billed to perform.
Ebony died in a gory accident on the Sunyani-Kumasi road while returning to Accra from Sunyani. Her childhood friend and PA, Franky Kuri and one air force official, Francis Atsu Vondee, who posed as a bodyguard also died in the car crash.
The final funeral rites and burial service of the late Dancehall diva Ebony Reigns have been scheduled for March 24, 2018 instead of the first date, March 17. The postponement follows difficulties to secure a big enough venue for the funeral.
