It may not have occurred to you that aside being the most celebrated star in Ghana at the moment, Abraham Attah has also joined the league of few million-dollar earners in the country.
The 14 year-old lead actor of Beasts of No Nation has reached unprecedented heights in the global movie industry after his role as a child soldier in the movie.
From winning the Marcello Mastroianni Best Young Actor Award at the Venice International Film Festival to bagging the Best Male Lead Award at the Film independent Spirits Award, Abraham Attah has risen to the heights of being an award presenter at the highly respectable Academy Awards (Oscars).
Recently, his manager has revealed that the young actor pocketed a whopping sum of $1.2m for the role he played in the popular Netflix movie, ‘Beasts Of No Nation’.
This is a financial feat a lot of celebrities in Ghana are yet to achieve even after many years in the world of entertainment.
Now we know why the young chap said, “I’m not gonna do local movies…,Hollywood is more fun”!
We just pray he doesn’t turn an extravagant spender as some child stars did in the past because with this fat bank account, if managed with discretion, he is already guaranteed a comfortable future.
According to latest news, Abraham Attah will soon relocate to America to continue his education and career following a scholarship award from Netflix.
This is a move some abroad-based Ghanaian celebrities had earlier suggested he makes. With this now, his career is believed to be secured, at least to a considerable extent.
There is also a pending proposal from the Minister of Tourism, culture and Creative Arts, to make him Tourism Ambassador for Ghana. this however, may not be ideal, as the teenager has quite a long way to go in his education and needs a lot of concentration.
