Young Ghanaian Hollywood actor Abraham Attah has refuted earlier claims from the Ministry of Tourism and Creativity Arts that he has been appointed as a Tourism ambassador for Ghana.
Answering questions from the media on his plans during the official unveiling of the 10000 toms for the needy, manager for the child star Mawuko Kuadzi clarified:
“We haven’t signed anything with the ministry of tourism yet, so we cant for now say Abraham is a tourism ambassador and we are also watching out closely that the ministry doesn’t do anything with his image, until we have a deal…….We’ve received the proposal, we’ve had several meetings but we’ve not signed the agreement yet ” .
Abraham Attah shot to global prominence with his gripping performance in the movie adaptation of Uzodinma Iweala’s novel, Beast of No Nation, alongside Luther star, Idris Elba. In the movie, he plays Agu, a child soldier in a war-torn African country.
