Entertainment critic Ahmed Banda, popularly known as Bandex, has disclosed his son, Rahim Banda, was to play the role of ‘Agu’ in Beasts of No Nation.
According to Bandex, who is father of Ghana’s exceptional child actor Rahim Banda, Abraham Attah deserves the role he played as ‘Agu’ in the award winning movie ‘Beasts of No Nation’ since his son, was the one to have been chosen but due to his fair-coloured skin he was not featured in the award winning movie.
Speaking with Kojo Preko Dankwa on Kasapa Entertainment on Kasapa 102.3FM Saturday, the Movie cum music producer asserted that sixteen year old (16) Rahim Banda was the only young actor who was auditioned twice and on the eve of the auditioning at TV3 premises, Abraham Attah was absent.
Bandex noted that though Abraham’s success is phenomenal, journalists or media critics should be circumspect in their reportage to save the 16 year old actor’s career.
When asked if he (Bandex) agrees to the clamour by the the public for Abraham Attah’s relocation to the US, the Entertainment Pundit said, “Yes Abraham should relocate to the US but should be trained to be versatile since movies like Beasts of No Nation comes once in awhile with good story line and good directing.”
In an answer to Attah’s recent comment that he will not feature in ‘Local’ movies, Bandex said, Beasts of No Nation is a local movie as compared to other Hollywood movies, adding that it is a low budgeted film.
