Ghanaian movie actor and political activist, Clement Bonney, has revealed the reason he had to part ways with Kumawood.
He revealed that it was contrary to the popular belief that it was his preference for the Fante language over Asante Twi that caused his exit.
Bonney, better known as Mr Beautiful, is known to have publicly supported the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the 2016 election.
It was alleged that his association with the NDC negatively affected his role in the movie industry.
The actor sought to return to movies after the election, but was allegedly denied the opportunity by some producers.
The general consensus at the time was that he was no longer a force to reckon with.
Debunking that assertion on ‘Delay Show’, Mr Beautiful stated that the language factor was the reason he could no longer stay.
“The Kumawood producers wanted me to speak Asante Twi and I said no. I will stick to Fante,” he said.
He however, believed that the producers were solely responsible for the industry’s current state.
According to Mr Beautiful, he isn’t done with movies.
“…I have lots of scripts. I want to do lots of things before I come out. I have not retired from shooting movies! How can I retire?” he asked.
