I haven’t gotten any script from any Ghanaian director but if they want me to feature in a local movie, that movie should have a future and should be on an international platform like Netflix. I have a manager in Ghana and in USA who send me scripts if only the movie is good,” Abraham Attah said.

Attah got into the limelight after starring in Idris Elba’s award-winning movie ‘Beasts of No Nation.’

The movie shot in Ghana starred Ama K. Abebrese, Fred Amugi and Grace Nortey.
