Possibly touched by the poor conditions of Emmanuel Nii Adom Quaye popularly known as Strika, a fan who spotted the Beast of No Nation actor selling coconut in wheelbarrow has appealed to his co-actor, Abraham Atta to support him.
In a video posted by Ghana Weekend on Twitter today, the fan called on people in touch with Abraham Atta to contact him to sort his friend out his present situation as a coconut seller.
“Yeah, Strika this, ein dem Abraham Atta shoot Beast of no Nation. Ridee, young man dey Yankee and young man too dey here. Wey dem boys wey have Abraham Atta ein number, make dem call Abraham Atta come dey help e guy, Strika chalie, ego be,” the fan is heard saying in the background.
To show that he is in agreement with the appeal, Strika nodded his head and said, ‘for real’.
This is not the first time Strika who got famous for his role in Beast of No Nation has been in the news unpleasantly.
In 2018, a number of news portals reported of his unfortunate situation when he disclosed that his managers had not given him an amount of $30,000 which was paid to him by the producers of the ‘Best of No Nation’.
At the time, he claimed that a member of the management team by name Kofi Robert had told him he will get the money when he attains the age of 18 years.
His revelations got many to blame the said manager for Strika’s poor condition but the hostility changed when reports started coming in that the latter had been a truant.
It was reported at the time that Strika always ran from a boarding school in Cape Coast to do menial jobs in Accra.
Many people including the headmaster of Montessori School in Cape coast where he schooled had come out to disclose that he was engaged in drugs and was recalcitrant.

Strika’s current condition is quite pathetic considering that his co-actor, Abraham Atta his doing quite well.
In April last year, it was reported that Abraham Attah gained admission to Tuff University in the United States of America but the opposite of the good life he is living seems to be the case for Strika back home.
