Kwaku Manu blames Abass' death on the lack of opportunities in film industry

Kumawood actor, Kwaku Manu, has blamed the collapse of the movie industry for the death of his colleague, Abass Abdullai popularly known as Blinks.

The 35-year-old Kumawood actor was stabbed to death Wednesday morning at Sawaba Akrem in the Asokore Mampong Municipality in the Ashanti Region.

The actor was allegedly attacked and stabbed by two men during a brawl in Kumasi. Blinks was trying to intervene in a quarrel between his boss' wife and her brother.

But speaking on Adom FM's Work and Hppiness show, Kwaku Manu explained that if the industry was thriving, Blinks would not be where he was at the time of his stabbing.

Manu stated: “Blinks was not just an actor, he was also a makeup artiste and combined the two anytime we were on location to shoot a movie".

Kwaku Manu recalled how he linked the late Blinks to movie producer, Jones Agyemang which begun their friendship.

“Blinks was like a brother so his death really hit me. I’m convinced if we were working, this wouldn’t have happened to him,” he bemoaned.

The police have mounted a manhunt for the suspects whose names have been given as Abass and Tijan.
