With his feature film debut in Beast of No Nation, 14 year old Ghanaian Actor, Abraham Attah has been on the rise in the international movie industry.

Just recently, he bagged a Netflix scholarship, the Marcello Mastroianni Best Young Actor Award at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival, the Ghana Movie Awards Best Actor in a Leading Role, among others.

He is also expected to feature in Shane Caruth’s third film, The Modern Ocean.

A few days ago, Ghana’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare hinted that the “Beast of no Nation” Actor will be made Ghana’s Tourism Ambassador. She made the statement while addressing the media launch of the 2016 Okwahu Paragliding Festival.

She said, “We are proud of Abraham Attah at the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts and we think that all of us should pamper him and do our best to make sure all he has achieved takes him far.”

She added that her ministry will also host Master Abraham Attah and some of his friends and family at the festival where she will hold discussions with him on a package that will see him become Ghana’s Tourism Ambassador.

    Bravo , Ghana Tourism Ministry. Hope Nigerian tourism Development Corp. learn from this. Nigeria is the only country where her major artistes promote other country (South Africa) with their musical videos and are proud of the action. Nigerian tourism needs our actors and singers.

    Oh! Thank you jenniee! That boy was too natural I became emotional! From the beginning, till the end of the little part he got,dude was so good . I checked his name at the end. Emmanuel afudze or so..plus I love the way the portrayed Nigeria, when agu said, the Nigerian soldiers are easy to sell to, they buy everything,and the soldier too was so sympathetic,and gave them plenty attention n food. Imagination TV Heheheheh. Plus striker look like the guy too o, I thought twas him. I jst realised after watching that Beast of no nation is an adapptation of a documentary written by a Sierra leonean journalist “cry o freetwon”i’v had it in my lappy since 2008. Thumbs up to idris, he’s accent was good.
