FOUR years after his one cast movie, Last Night, actor Prince David Osei has picked up an award for his work.

The Ghanaian won Best Actor (Lead Role) at the African International Film Festival Awards 2019 in Dallas, USA.

The recognition is the second for the same movie after he won Best Actor (Lead Role) at the Abuja International Film Festival Awards in 2017.

The movie was reportedly the first-ever one cast movie in Africa and saw Prince David Osei in several roles including as ‘Bright Mensah’ a radio show host listening to callers glorify marijuana.

It was produced by PDO Productions and Diamond Pictures and directed by Andy Boyo. Prince celebrated his award on Instagram and described the recognition “great and fulfilling”.

He said for the one-cast movie to be still picking an award after several years means the works should be in the category of classics.

The actor revealed that a casket scene which was 80% of the movie was the most gruesome. "Aside nightmares, I was sick for some time because the wooden nature of casket hampered his breathing," he said.

In several scenes, Prince David Osei also played different characters in the movie that have been described as emotionally engaging.

Prince praised Babatunde Adewale who wrote the original screenplay and also recognised his director Andy Boyo for encouraging him.
