bold and talk about their pasts to encourage their fans and inspire them to be
According to the actor, a lot of celebrities shy away from
talking about their past because they don’t want anyone to know where they come
from and that for him is bad.
“I know some of these celebrities come from very poor homes and it’s just right that they talk about it to motivate their fans.”
“I have always said I
come from a very poor background but the Lord has been good to me. I have six
other siblings and it wasn’t easy for us growing up but with determination and
hard work I am making it,” he told Showbiz in an interview on Thursday,
Sunsum, real name Yaw Adu, explained that he uses every
opportunity he gets to talk about his past and has through that, gotten
individuals to support him.
“I have gotten support from very good people who heard my story and wanted to help. Such persons were touched to help when I openly told them my story. So I want my fans to know that all is not rosy and hard work pays,” he said.

has featured in movies like Sunsum Mu Nsem, Owuo Sunsum, Ghetto Superstar,
David Ba, Abofra Samuel, Adu Bone, Bisa Nyame, Anibre, Kwaadee, Abusua Ben Ni
