The Ghanaian movie industry has just been thrown into a sudden shock as a physically challenged kid actor has just passed on.
The deformed kid with cerebral challenges who was found at the Luckie Lawson foundation and initiative, was used to tell the a story in a yet to be released movie, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ from the stables of Yvonne Nelson’s productions.
According to actor cum director, Pascal Amanfo, working with the child in the movie production was so challenging as the kid was unable to talk or walkbut was full of life.
In his words, “Had the amazing and eye opening opportuinty to film with this child in his challenging condition...unable to talk or walk..cerebrally deformed and yet with a glow that can pierce any heart...His mother blatantly refused to poison him as her family demanded and stuck with her guts to give him a chance at life..i have known the treasure of raising kids...the joy they bring and emptiness life can be without them and so when i met this child through the @luckielawson foundation and initiative, i decided his story could and should be told...this forms the premise for a @ynproductionsgh film...IfTomorrowNeverComes... it is therefore heartrending to note that Kwaku, this said child, 2 weeks after shoot just passed away in an Accra hospital..he required no greater honour than at least living to share a part of his story with the world. GOD bless your hearts @luckielawson.. @yvonnenelsongh...Kwaku lives on!!
