Attah's elevation to fame follows his role as a young orphan in the 2015 movie, Beast of No Nation.
The teen actor has starred in several other films including Marvel Studios film, Spider Man: Homecoming.
Despite being visible online through his social media handles, Attah manages to keep his personality away from the media lens.
The Ga-Dangme indigene, who has been residing in the United States for some years since he shot to fame, has been focusing on his acting career and education.
YEN.com.gh gathered that the 19-year-old actor secured a role in the Hollywood movie, Tazmanian Devil, in 2019 with American rapper, Birdman, as the film's executive producer.
Attah’s steady but inspiring rise to stardom from his less privileged background is truly motivating.

In another story, Ghanaian artist, Amoako Boafo, has landed a mouth-watering deal with French luxury goods company, Dior, to develop one of the most talked-about collections.
The young Ghanaian native will be working with the creative director of Dior, Kim Jones, to create designs for the Spring-Summer menswear season.
The prevailing coronavirus pandemic has prevented a physical fashion show for the time being.
However, the fashion company has featured an all-black group of models in its latest short film uploaded on YouTube. Edition.cnn.com reports that Jones' latest designs masterfully marry Boafo's motifs and sensibilities with his own.
