Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye, one of the stars of the Idris Elba-fronted movie ‘Beasts of No Nation‘ has revealed that he is homeless and has been begging for food and water.
Why? He is yet to receive the money he is owed for the important part he played in the movie.
Why? His representatives- who told him he’d be able to access his money when he turned 18- won’t tell him where said cash is stored.
His story below…
The 18-year-old, who gave portions of the interview above in the language Ga, revealed that he was told he’d be paid and given access to education in exchange for his performance which has now been streamed by millions on Netflix.
Alas, he was cheated and is yet to receive anything and this has forced him to seek refuge from strangers on the streets of the nation’s capital.
Who he cites as the source of his problems? One Kofi Robert who advised the-then child to have his earnings transferred to his bank account.
After the movie, I was to be paid 1% of the profit made from the movie. They told me it’s in the bank but I am yet to see the money,
Reps for Netflix are yet to respond.
