Video: I never saw my $30K after ‘Beast of No Nation’ movie – Strika

Young Ghanaian actor, Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye, popularly known as Strika, who co-starred in the “Beast of No Nation” movie says he never received any payment for his role even though he was told someone was holding the money in trust for him.

Strika alleges that after shooting the movie that that pushed Abraham Attah into the limelight, a producer – Kofi Robert – informed him that he would hold the money in trust by depositing it in a bank account until he turned 18.

However, but that hasn’t happened even though he is approaching 19.

Strika, who now hawks and begs on the streets of Accra, says neither his 1% share of the profit gained by the American service provider, Netflix, has reached him.

“After the movie, I was to be paid 1% of the profit made from the movie. They told me it’s in the bank but I am yet to see the money,” he explained.

Strika has also revealed that his relationship with his co-actor, Abraham Attah hasn’t been the same ever since he relocated to the USA.

“The way he [Abraham Attah] now behaves is not good. The way he talks; the way he replies is not good. He will be shouting on you and all stuff, I don’t know if it’s because he has travelled outside [sic],” he said.

Strika also disclosed that he was paid ¢10,000 for “Jungle Justice”, a movie he starred in after “Beast of No Nation”, but a manager by the name, Mawuko, used all the monies to buy him “clothes and shoes”.

“Mawuko used the money to buy suits and other things the money was not given to me directly; I was only told…! Strika disclosed.

Watch the interview below:

So this was an Interview with Strika of Beast of No Nation.According to him, he helps someone to sell yam.And that is what he feeds on daily.Adding that, monies he made after he featuring in Beast of No Nation did not get to him because he was told he hadn't attained 18years.We're pleading with society to help take the young man off the street to continue his acting career since that is what he has interest in.This is not for fame anything whatsoever.We're only performing our duties as society demands.
