- The one time popular comedian is appealing to the public to help him make a living
- Ghana Boy has completely gone blind after returning from the United States
Veteran Ghanaian comedian, Samuel Otto, widely known as Ghana Boy, is making a passionate appeal to Ghanaians to help him make a living after going blind.
According to Ghana Boy, he began losing his eyesight months after he returned from the United States to join local movie Ghanaian movie industry, Kumawood.
Speaking recently to Kofi TV, the veteran comedian disclosed that, his current condition has made him homeless, in spite of his role in raising high the flag of Ghana as a comedian.
Ghana Boy said his eye problem started in 2007, and has eventually rendered him completely blind.
“My living condition is very bad and many people have neglected me because of my blindness. I don’t have a place to live and even what to eat is also a problem for me,” the comedian broke down in an interview.
To him, he could still pursue a career in acting or work with any radio station willing to offer him job opportunities.
“I am only blind but my senses are working correctly and can do many other jobs, like acting movies, being on radio, I can do all these things”, he said.
Ghana Boy therefore appealed to individuals and management of radio stations, directors and producers of movies to engage him since he still has the skills.
The comedian was a member of early group who starred in the once popular television show, Keysoap Concert Party.
He performed with the likes of Bob Okala, Bob Santo, Nkomode and Agya Koo.
