Ras Nene Was A Street Thug And Armed Robber But Kumawood Changed Him – Sumsum Narrates. Sumsum of Kumawood fame has praised the Kumasi movie industry for changing the lives of many people.
Speaking in an interview on Kingdom+ Fm, he said unlike the Accra Ghallywood stars who grew up as ‘Dada Bees’, Kumawood stars had a tough childhood.
He disclosed that most of the Kumawood stars hustled on the streets before the movie industry changed their lives.
Sumsum talked about Ras Nene who was a feared street thug in Kumasi with many police cases around his neck.
According to Sumsum, back in the days, Ras Nene was a notorious robber who has served many terms in prison but now he’s a changed man all because of the opportunities Kumawood directors gave him.
He also talked about how Agya Koo moved from a shoeshine boy who sleeps on the streets to a national icon all because of Kumawood.
