Ghanaian actor, Abrahama Attah has been the talk of the week in the Ghanaian entertainment world because of a speech he delivered in America when he won best actor award at the Independent Spirit Awards.
Days after the teen actor received the award; three renowned radio presenters in Accra, Lexis Bill, MzGee and Jay Foley were accused of mocking the ‘Beasts Of No Nation’ actor for his speech delivered at the awards. This comment from the radio presenters, which happened on Joy FM and Live FM angered many Ghanaians who thought their action looked down on the 15-year-old boy. Disappointed Ghanaians took to social media networks to call out these radio personalities. After many Ghanaians expressed their complete disgust about their actions, Jay Foley, Lexis Bill and MzGee apologized to the actor and Ghanaians for their actions.
Abraham Attah after their apology also explained why he fumbled on the night after he received the award. We approached some Ghanaians to take their thoughts on the incident, which has had many Ghanaians talking for days. Whilst some think the three radio presenters did not work professionally, others think we should cut them a slack.
Watch what some Ghanaians said about the Abraham Attah saga.
