Ghanaian actor Fred Amugi has disclosed that he was once nominated to be the Ga Mantse (Ga Chief), but rejected it based on advice from his father.
The veteran actor has starred in so many movies, and was a regular on Ghanaian TV screens in the 1990s and 2000s.
In an interview with Doreen Andoh on the Cosmopolitan Mix on Joy FM, Fred Amugi revealed that the Ga Kingmakers had originally approached him to take up the title of Ga Mantse.
To him, becoming the Ga Mantse would have required him to alter his religious beliefs, hence his reason to reject it.
“I just followed the footsteps of my dad. My dad dodged becoming Nii Amugi II because he said 'your religious and moral social life get messed up when you become a chief," he said
He also added that “there are things if you were yourself, you wouldn’t want to do [but] you would be forced to do all those things so the best thing to do is stay aside.”
