Entertainment of Monday, 5 September 2016
Kwadwo Nkansah aka Liwin has for the past years entertained many Ghanaians through movies.
In recent times, the actor has got many people using his term “I don’t think far, I don’t think madness”.
Both old and the young have been heard on several occasions using Liwin’s phrase to have fun.
The actor has narrated how the construction came about. The “I don’t far, I don’t think madness” coiner in an interview with Hitz FM’s MzGee on Showbiz This Week Entertainment show over the weekend disclosed that he made those funny comments in a movie titled “Agyese Nyame Bamu” shot six years ago.
He revealed that producers of the movie did not pay him because he was up and coming artiste but hurriedly added that the moviemakers gave him a token of Gh10 as an appreciation fee.
The multiple award-winning actor applauded producers of “Agyese Nyame Bamu” movie for giving him such an amount when MzGee expressed shock after he mentioned the amount given him for his role in the film.
Liwin lauded them for the amount because he used to walk home with nothing after working with some producers during the time he shot that movie.
“My transportation to many movie sets back then was from my pocket so if someone is helping by giving you this amount then it’s good. In everything, if you don’t dedicate yourself, you will not be successful.
In Ghana, most people want free goods so they will continue to use that particular product for it to grow and they won’t get that free anymore from same product again because it is now a big brand.
If you think you are good and they are giving you little for your services, do it very well because your reward will come in no time.
If you focus on money from onset of your career, it might not end you well.” He told MzGee.
Liwin later thanked God for making him relevant in the country with the “I don’t far, I don’t think madness” term which has stuck on the lips of the president, Men of God and many Ghanaians.
“I feel very happy when I hear a lot of people using my term because who am I for God to use me in this way. I didn’t attend Legon so for Ghanaians to be using what I say, it’s just the blessings of God.”
Liwin who has started “I don’t think far” cypher says he has collaborations with different musicians and they will be out soon.
The Kumawood star boy noted that he has Okyeame Kwame, Jupita, Cabum, and Tinny on the next edition of the “I don’t think far” cypher, which will be out soon.
According to him, he also has a song with female Dancehall artiste MzVee which will be followed up with another ‘I don’t think far’ song which features Tutulapato, Awal, Cartoon, and Mosquito.
