There have been reports on several blogs on Strika, Emmanuel Nii Adom Quayewho was a co-actor in the movie Beasts of No Nation which featured Ghanaian wonder kid, Abraham Attah.
Strika apparently is reported to have been found on the streets by Caleb Boye around GIJ campus. According to Caleb, the lad revealed to him that he has been on the street for weeks and he currently works with a man who sells yam at Agbobloshie.
The young actor is reported to have some money in the bank worth $30,000 which will be given to him when he turns 18. In an interview that the young actor granted earlier we gathered that Strika is counting on the producers of the movie to give him his money since he has been hustling on the streets.
Contrary to the bad picture that has been created in recent reports, as though the producers of the movie have neglected the actor, Manager of Abraham Attah who also happens to be the Manager of Strika has come out to clear the air.
In an interview with Hitz FM, he explained that Abraham Attah, Justice, and Emmanuel (Strika) were sent to Cape Coast Montessori, but Abraham had the opportunity to study in USA because one of the executives from NETFLIX decided to sponsor him(Abraham) leaving the two, thus Justice and Strika here in Ghana.
According to Mawuko, the young actor has been escaping from School on countless times to join his friends on the street. The last time Strika escaped from school, the administration of the school threatened to expel him from the school if he should repeat such an act again.
It is sad to know that Strika has no parents but Kwabena Sam (Played Abraham’s father) is his guardian and caretaker. From what we gather
Mawuko explains that the actor in question was given an amount of money for the role he played in the movie which he can’t disclose, but the alleged $30,000 is 1% of the profit he made from the film which is still in an account of which the actor knows of.
Being a minor, Strika has been given all the attention and care he needs hence they don’t know why the actor in question seems displeased since the same treat is been given to Justice.
He added that they have been doing their best but the actor is just not helping himself.
