Kojo which i’m playing in this television series “shante”, Is a very different Character particularly for me, as you know, producers and directors have tagged me as a comic actor and those are the roles they usually call me for.
I am basically very excited about this role and it came as a surprise to me when i was called upon to act this role but i believe Prince David Osei trusts i can deliver.As an Actor, there should be different dimensions to your acting, its all about creativity, the craft is not about tagging yourself into one category and making it your comfort zone.
What makes you a good or excellent actor is by taking up challenging roles and ones you adapt, you are good to go. There is nothing comedy about my character in this television series and after this is out, my fans will see another side of me.They should lookout for this.
