The young actor who played the role of Strika in Beasts of No Nation movie alongside Abraham Attah, has been spotted on the streets begging for money.
Strika, despite acting in the internationally acclaimed movie, has fallen out of luck and is now back on the streets 3 years after the movie took him off the streets and supposedly changed his life.
Strika revealed what happened to him since the movie which has led to him becoming a street boy once again.
It’s evident from the interview that Strika did not have any professional handling his money and his career and it’s easy to see his cash has been embezzled.
According to him, he made $30,000 from Beasts of No Nation but he could not really explain how the money was spent.
He also said he shot another movie from which he made Ghc 10,000 but that money was also used to shop for him.
Through it all Strika never received any real cash but he always had others handling his money because of his status as a minor and it’s evident nobody had his best interests at heart in their dealings with him.
Strika also complained that the attitude of Abraham Attah has changed towards him since he (Abraham) became a star.
Caleb in a post on Facebook disclosed that the actor sells yam at Agbogbloshie Market in Accra.
“I am sad this morning.I was heading to the Ghana Institute of Journalism campus and I met Striker. You would ask who is Striker? Striker starred in the movie Beast of No Nations. The said film that made Abraham Attah.
Today I met him begging for money on the road leading to GIJ. I called him and brought him to campus.
Speaking to him he tells us he now works with a gentleman who sells Yam at Agbogbloshie Market. He stays with his grandma at North Kaneshie.”
