Fast rising actor, Too Sweet Annan, may just be living his name and having a time of his life on set.

At a period when some of his more experienced contemporaries are lamenting the lack of role and prospects in the industry, Annan is riding on a crest of a wave having discovered his dream job. Life as an actor has been nothing but sweet for him.

Perhaps, it may not be as gloomy as others tend to describe perceived declining opportunities in the industry, as the young actor paints a positive picture about the development of the film industry, particularly in critical areas such as directing, remuneration, among others.


“The Ghanaian film industry has become much better than it was before. Things have definitely improved in terms of directing, payment, the type and quality of equipment used for shooting, editing and other aspects,” admits Annan in an interview with Showbiz.

For the promising artiste who developed the passion for acting at an early age, he honed his skills when his school appeared on Toddlers’ Time, a children’s show on GTV. But his major career break came in 2008 when he met Joseph K. Serebour, the Executive Producer of Peace Films, who featured him in his movie, The Supremo.

Since then, Too Sweet admits his career has been on the high and is enjoying his newfound fame while remaining grounded and not allowing himself to be carried away by celebrity life.

“There is a lot of pressure from all the fans and you have to appreciate them for their support because at the end of the day, they are the ones who patronise your movies and spread the word about you to the rest of the wider public,” he said.

As a responsible family man and father of a two-year-old daughter, Too Sweet says he does not allow his female fans to cross the line and has learned to deal with pressures that come with the job.

Born and raised in Ghana by a Nigerian mother, Too Sweet Annan studied Visual Arts in Nungua Senior High School and proceeded to study Fine Arts at Ghanatta College of Arts.
