- Management of Strika, who starred in 'Beasts of No Nation', has quashed reports that he is now turned yam seller
- According to them, his money was in a bank account and he could access it now that he was of age
- Contrary to reports, Strika claimed that his money had been locked up by some people
YEN.com.gh has sighted a press release from managers of Strika, a cast of popular movie, 'Beast of No Nation' after it was reported that he was now a beggar and was dealing in yams in suburb of Accra.
According to the release sighted on social media, Emmanuel Adom Quaye, is reported to have ran away from school.
The release went on to say that the 1% profit made by the actor after starring in 'Beast of No Nation', was still intact and that he only needed an ID card to access the money since he had turned 18 years.
The press release from the management known as MK Content, also debunked certain statements made by the actor after he was discovered on the streets of Accra.
There were earlier reports that Strika had turned into a beggar on the streets of Accra.
This was revealed by Strika himself in an interview with GHONE Newsroom on Monday, August 20, 2018, monitored by YEN.com.gh.
According to Strika, they were a group of three boys including himself, Abraham Attah, and one other boy called Justice who shot the Beasts of No Nation movie.
He revealed that they were each given an amount of thirty thousand (30,000) but couldn’t say whether the amount was in dollars or cedis.
That money, he said, was given to one of the casts of the movie called Zowi, an American star.
Strika added that he was told that the thirty thousand is what was being used to cater for him therefore, he has accepted that the thirty thousand no longer exists.
That money, according to the agreement he had with the producers, was to be kept in the bank for him until he turned eighteen years old.
The money, which he said he has no idea how much it was, was deposited at the bank with signatories of one of the Ghanaian actors in the movie, Kofi Rabbit, and Zowi.
However, now that he is eighteen and about to turn nineteen, Kofi Rabbit is refusing to let him have access to the money, and keeps telling him many stories, Strika stated.
He revealed that he does not remember which of the banks his money is being saved, but he desperately needs the money to learn a trade or start his own business.
He disclosed also that as part of the promises, he and Abraham Attah and Justice were taken to a Montessori School in Cape Coast but Abraham left later to school in America.
Strika said he left the school in Cape Coast and returned to Accra because have lived in Accra all his life and he never found living in Cape Coast comforting.
He also said he realized he couldn’t grasp anything he was being taught in school and so he concluded that his was to learn a trade, for which reason he wants his money back from the ‘pocket’ of Kofi Rabbit.
According to Strika, he and Justice were also picked on the street just like Abraham Attah, and went through two auditions before being selected for their roles in 'Beasts of No Nation'.
