Spotlight: John Dumelo

John Dumelo

John Dumelo

John Dumelo is the latest screen idol to set hearts racing amongst the Ghanaian (and even Nigerian) female population. Following the frequent presence of caramel complexion brothers on Ghanaian movie screens, John was a breath of fresh air to emerge within the Ghanaian film industry. A tall, dark, and handsome man representing for all the chocolate coloured brothers, and causing the majority of female fans to fall for him, the bonus part of all this is his incredible acting credentials.

The only son and the youngest of three children, Mr Dumelo first received his big break as a seven-year-old at Christ the King International School in Accra. It was at this school the producers from the GAMA Film company visited in 1991 to find children who would be suitable for roles in their film ‘Baby Thief.’ John and his older sister were some of the lucky few to be selected, with John eventually securing one of the lead roles in the movie as Saka.

After attending Achimota School and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology for high school and university respectively, he appeared on several Ghanaian television programs including ‘Sun City’ and ‘About To Wed.’ However, his popularity reached a higher level when he made the transition from the small screen to the big screen.


Appearances in top highly-rated movies like ‘The Perfect Picture,’ ‘The King Is Mine,’ and ‘Chelsea’ have made Mr Dumelo hot property in the film industry- even Nollywood producers are clamouring over themselves to gain the opportunity to work with him.

Such popularity in the film industry has only served to make him an equally hot topic within the media- he has been romantically linked to various co-stars, yet has denied all of such allegations.

In spite of his popularity, John remains humble and modest: “You know some people can get carried away when fame and fortune knocks on their door, making them lose focus of who they are and where they are coming from. I want to work hard to avoid that.”

He is also heavily involved in charity work, having already donated GH 1000 cedis worth of goods to the children’s unit of Battor Catholic Hospital during New Year’s Eve 2009.

Along with his acting career, John manages a real estate company, and partners an IT firm. Not only is this guy a pretty face, but obviously a man of many talents also.

i love him with all my heart. I love to see him act romantic roles though get carried away.

Evelyn says:

John Dumelo started out with very noble intents but he has since fallen out of love with the art of acting and in love deeply with the money because that is the only thing that can explain some of the very USELESS roles he’s been taking in USELESS movies that lack moral or any up lifting message or lessons. Today, someone tried to sell me two films with him in it and once I saw the picture of him standing between a woman’s raised legs in both, I told the guys to take them back. I just saw a trailer with him and Juliet Ibrahim and he’s screwing her on top of a table OUTSIDE the house!!! Doesn’t John know that he will have children some day? The images committed to film is forever! Is the money so worth it? He’s disgusting to me, I’m sorry. He keep doing this nasty movies, why not just sign up to do p*rnography!
