 ‘Beast of No Nation’ child  star, now begs for alms in Ghana .

Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye, the youngster who played Strika, the mute kid in the fabled ‘Beast of No Nation’ that made Abraham Attah find his way to international stardom, has now taken to begging on the streets of Accra for survival.

In an interview with Serwaa Amihere of GhOneTv, Strika revealed that all the kids who shot the movie have been well taken care of except him, in terms of payment.

He further stated that “ I was told i was paid 30,000 but i don’t know if it was in cedis or dollars. I was a child then, so the producer by name Zoey, opened the account for me. .

I have stopped schooling because it’s difficult for me hence I want to learn a trade, so I left Cape-coast to Accra. My parents are dead so I stay with my grand mum who takes care of me”.

What do we make of this? Wasn’t this young boy properly paid for his role in that movie? Was he played  by the production house who were trusted to be fair and transparent ? This is not a good thing at all. It is a big embarrassment to them all, or was he played by his own family? No matter the case, it shouldn’t have resulted to the level of begging for alms.  This is unbelievable and heart breaking.
