15-year-old Ghanaian actor and multiple award winner Abraham Attah has reacted to comments made over his acceptance speech by some Ghanaian entertainment pundits and presenters, particularly Jay Foley and Lexis Bill. In an instagram, the “beasts of no nation” star basically stated that his speech was “off the cuff” and said he had no idea he was going to win the award, and so naturally he didn’t prepare his speech.
A post from Abraham Attah’s Instagram account reads:
“l knows that some of the radio presenters in Ghana are saying I gave a bad speech at the independent spirit awards. They don’t know what happened to me. I thought I wasn’t going to win, so I decided not to write any speech down. I was so surprised when she mentioned my name and I didn’t know what to say when I went up there”.
