Actor Who Played Agu's Dad In Beasts Of No Nation- Kobina Amissah-Sam Says He Got The Role Ahead Of John Dumelo And Jim Iyke

John Dumelo3
Kobina Amissah-Sam, who played the role of Agu’s (Abraham Attah) dad, has revealed that he won the role ahead of two other heavyweights.
According to him, both John Dumelo and Jim Iyke also auditioned for the role, but ultimately were passed over in his favour.

The highly acclaimed Netflix flick starred young Ghanaian Abraham Attah as the protagonist, Agu, a fun loving child who was gradually hardened into a child soldier as war ravaged his village. It has since propelled Attah to worldwide fame.
Amissah-Sam said one component of his personal style is actually what landed him the gig- his haircut.
“One of the panelists said I had [an] African look and that I would better portray the values they needed to see in Agu’s father in the movie; who was a typical local African community leader and organiser” he said on Hitz Fm.
When asked if he felt jealous that Attah seemed to be the only one getting international fame out of the movie, he added it’s just natural to be a little jealous, but that the important thing is to support Attah is his endeavours.
“I think this is his time and we just have to support him.” he said.

  1. That’s why his chasing politics now – because he is hungry andthe women he use to dupe for their money have become smarter since Anss so the poor boy is hustling for roles. Siaaaa

  2. This boy is just mouf mouf….that was a simple role but still he could pass because k!ssing and s€xing wasn’t inside. Like he will pass with flying colors. That’s all he knows. Womanizer!!!!Your stomach will continue to grow the pot belly it is growing and you will continue to get fat as your reward. Thief…reaping where you do not sow has consequences. Small boy too you go and cheat him for popularity. How disgusting!

  3. Oh John you shy your body. This small role. You for pray ooo e be like your career dey fall rapidly and politics is too dangerous because that your mouth will by all means get you in trouble. You talk as if NDC pays you millions meanwhile I saw you in town reduced to a smaller car (a Peugeot) ma Sri Saa because Mahama get plenty land cruisers he can give you but his letting you do the dirty talking with your big mouth while you drive a baby Peugeot. SMH. My friend use your head and stop using only that thing btn ur legs

  4. Hahahahahahahaha Dumelo you blast ooo. So only Jocelyn and chicks u go fit kiss and s£x in films very well. Simple audition you blast. you fail just like u failed in KNUST and you call yourself a pioneer actor. Kai!

  5. At least Jim has a strong Nigerian accent so it would have been odd in the film full of Ghanaian accents but you John why your head die? Wu ye nam ankasa. Dead goat follower ?

  6. HOH John dem bounce you. This be true Yawa. Sorry wai. This one die I shy give you wey I hear say your tundra spoil wey NDC no dey give you pesewa sef. Cars dey park and rot for their car park wey u dey drive baby Peugeot. Your life dey go down oooo not up. Your hotel too I go there hear say you have nothing to do with the property so u figure say we fool eh. You dey lie lie then pretend. You see your cup is getting full. Everyday you dey talk say you be Christian. Remember say God dey help honest people, he no dey help crooks and pretenders so dey guard…A word to the wise……..

  7. OH SHYOUS….and he never even mentioned it. Abi this one you can’t brag about it but when they gave you small tourism post, you will announce it before the government even issued statement or comment. Sia…learn your lesson wai and watch that mouth of yours. Politics is not for people who can’t secure simple roles that’s doesn’t requires using their waist. It’s for smart thinkers not drop outs of KNUST. Kai shame!

  8. In twi there’s a saying – Wo pre a wo b3 ti
    In other words when you rush you will embarrass yourself with mistakes…..that’s John Dumelo for u.

  9. Honestly I don’t think this guy can settle down. The way he lies and cheats on women around the world is serious. Sometimes 2 or 3 women have been assured by him that his dating them. He will end up like his best friend Fred Nuamah. Mark it. Just jumping from woman to woman without a soul forever. Everytime you see him his with a different woman in a compromising amorous position. Such a shame and you are not getting younger. Infact you are getting older, fatter and growing breast and pot belly. My friend pray because something may be behind you from your sins in the dark.

  10. Mr Thimble pen!s why am I not surprised that you couldn’t pass this audition. If my thing was like a thimble (which I have seen urs) I would focus my energy on work and not cheating women of their money. Now even simple roles you are failing. The Ghana roles you get small small because you are friends with the producers but am sure if they were to do a proper Hollywood audition just like beast of no nation did, you will not make it. I shy for you. Kai Kai Kai and you call yourself a don. You clown pass! Mr Tsatsu dro (ant pen!s)

  11. Amissah-Sam really has the African look as they said. I think Jim would hve over done it/ over-acted. lol. And lol at the comment abt John…hmm JD ahunu amane

      • Lol JD’s pomposity led to his failure at that audition and on top of that snatching the tourism ambassador title from a little boy. (Abraham) when it was clearly announced that he is the one. The boy has made the biggest impact for Ghana in the last year alone than you have in your whole how many years career? You see Oscar stage before? It’s not that 2 by 4 stage you and Fred Nuamah have been doing for Ghana movie awards oo. This is the real deal! The people and connections he met & made at the 2016 oscars alone are people you will never see in your entire life JD. He has even been sent to America now for FREE. Meanwhile JD still dey hustle for American papers with a girl hr married in Virginia but keep lying to the world about. Kwasiasem nkwaaaaa JD. Skin pain be wat lol
