Strika and Abraham Attah were starred in the Beast of No Nation in the year 2015 which gave them popularity in and beyond the shores of Ghana.
Things have taken different turn for Abraham Attah as he continued and now attended school in the United States but for Strika is a bitter story.
Strika about a year ago was spotted on on the street selling, something that took the entertainment industry by surprise taken into consideration the fact that the money he got from the said movie was sufficient to transformed his life.
Known in private life as Emmanuel Nii Adokwei , in an interview with Abraham Offei of Glovantis Multimedia blamed his failure to be on the same page as his friend Abraham Attah on his stubbornness.
“I would say I am here because of my stubbornness, I believe that if I had taken life, the opportunities and myself seriously, I would not be here today. Unlike me, Abraham took advantage of the situation and made good use of it,” he said.
When queried if he has any regrets considering where Abraham is at the moment, he mentioned, “if I say I have regrets, it will sound like I am jealous of where he is which is not the case. Like I said, it is my stubbornness that has rendered me in my current state.”
When asked why he didn’t take his education serious as that could have also helped transfy his life at least, he said, “before I was enrolled into the Montessori school in Cape Coast after the Beast of No Nation movie, I hadn’t stepped in any school, so it was difficult grasping want was being taught, I didn’t get anything so I had no interest in schooling. I recall that I had to suggest to my superiors that they should just find some vocational school for me, something that I can do with my hands rather than going to the classroom.”
Asked if he has any of his family members is looking after him now, he said, “yes, I have an aunty who is doing her best to take care of me, in fact I’m currently in vocational training and she is the one taking care of everything.”
On what his future plans are, he said, “I would like to go to art or acting school.”
