Arguably the most popular Actor in Ghana now, Kwadwo Nkansah Lil Win has stated that even though his rise to fame took him through a lot of obstacles he is here to stay on the Ghanaian entertainment scene.
Speaking to exclusively on Virginia based “Sankofa Radio” during his recent tour of the United States. He said, “I don’t allow stardom to get into my head; I rather keep calm and learn from others because I know where I am coming from. I have really gone through a lot before getting here and if I am making it today, I believe the best thing is to learn more and be on top for a very long time. I was nobody not too long ago, but I’m here to stay” he stated.
Talking about how he entered into movies, Lil Win a former student of Methodist Primary JSS in Kumasi said he wasn’t a brilliant student in class but won many awards for his drama group in school because he was very funny. Kwadwo Nkansah who has starred in over 200 movies up to date also stated that he has a good working relationship with the so-called English actors and has worked with Majid Michel, Van Vicker among others. He therefore rubbished the perceived tension between the Twi (Kumawood) and English actors. Lil Win singled out the late Santo as the person whose antics on the screen influenced him to enter into acting. He stated, ”I love how he (Santo) fused jokes with wise sayings”. He was a genius and an interesting character. I was very sad when he passed away” Kwadwo Nkansah lamented.
Lil Win pointed to his humility, commitment to the needy and hard work as the reasons why his career is soaring. He therefore reiterated the need for celebrities to reach out to the less unfortunate in society and use their status and power to positively influence society.
