“Beast of No Nation” Star Strika’s Money is safe in a Trust Fund – Management Company

Talent Management Company MK Content has responded to trending story on Beast of No Nation’s Strika (real name Emmanuel Quaye).

Emmanuel was in the news this week after a journalist claimed he saw him “begging for money on the road”. He was later interviewed by Serwaa Amihere of GHOne.

Strika said he’s not been given access to the $30,000 he made from the movie as promised, since he’s turned 18.

The company released a statement providing details on the welfare facilities and financial support given to him following the movie.

The company says he ran away from school and his guardian’s home prior to the interview. The company said him and another child actor from the movie Justice live together and are on full scholarship paid for by the producers of the movie with contribution from Netflix.

The company says his $30,000 is in a Trust Fund in his name at Barclay’s Bank and now that he’s 18, he’ll need a valid ID card to access it.

MK Content also clarified Emmanuel’s story about them using GHc10,000 to buy a suit for him. The company said “he meant to say it in the old currency which is ten million, currently GHc1,000.”

The company added that a suit shirt, tie and a pair of shoes for him to attend the Teens Choice Awards in 2016.

The company added that he has a good relationship with co-star Abraham Attah who played the role of Agu in the movie.

He’s now back in their custody, the company said.

We do hope everything works out.

      I’m all for justice but there are a million reasons why a no hear word teenager would runaway from home and say no one is giving him his money. He was a minor. It would have been irresponsible to move him all that money

    @Slice. That is very true. There are questions their release fail to address though, like when did he turn 18? and. why did he take this interview for MK to say where his money is and that he needs a valid ID? How long does it take to get an ID? Did they start the process of getting him a valid ID? Who is the guardian to him?
    Above all, I am worried by the statement “we currently have him” in #5, it sounds sort of a “captive” situation to me.

    i agree with slice. even at 18, he shouldn’t be given full access till the money till perhaps 25.

    It appears to me like this guy will even blow off the cash once given the access to the account. He needs to learn the value of money.

    I just don’t like the fact that someone with such talent was found begging for money. This is so troubling with some of our youths these days.

    Didn’t see the movie, but only $30K? Was he an extra or something like that?

    Anyway, the worst were those two child actors from the top-grossing award-winning movie “Slumdog Millionaire” who returned to their slum lives after making the movie.
