April 17, 2016 – Ghanaian Actor Narrates How Jim Iyke & John Dumelo Failed At An Acting Audition

Ghanaian actor Kobina Amissah-Sam who played the role of Agu’s father in the ever popular Beasts of No Nation movie has disclosed that he had the chance to be one of the casts of Beasts of No Nation because of his hair cut.

According to him, the likes of John Dumelo, Jim Ike among other great actors auditioned for various roles but were not selected.

When was asked by Hitz Fm’s MzGee what could possibly be that one thing that did the magic for him and got him a role in the ever popular movie, Beasts of No Nation.

He said when he went for the acting audition with his friend and they were called into the auditioning room, one of the casting director said yes, he has the African look, and he thinks he would be the best person to play the role of Agu’s father, so he’s sure his haircut played a major role in he getting the nod to be part of the cast because the likes of John Dumelo, Jim Ike among others auditioned.

    Maybe over confidence cost them their chances.
    Another lesson to be learned here is, Nobody has IT ALL in life. No one is omniscience, only God the creator.
