Acting Career

Ras Nene, who has been in the industry for over a decade, said he got into it by accident.

“Friends of mine called Tutu and Daniel Adeyele tried to talk me into it but I ignored them. There was a time Tutu was on set at Buokrom and I had to go pick my keys from him. As soon as the director saw me, he said he had a gangster role for me and he was impressed with the way I executed it so that is how it all started,” he recalled.

Ras Nene said he almost gave up at the early stages of his career because the movies he shot were not being released.
