Ghanaian actor and entertainer Mawuli Gavor has revealed that his unprecedented breakthrough in one of Africa’s biggest movie industries, Nollywood, came through a colleague actor, Chris Attoh.
In an interview with Mz Gee on the entertainment segment of New Day on TV3 Friday, October 23, the former KPMG worker said he was fortunate to have been surrounded by people who believed in him, hence his ability to have been part of great productions both in Ghana and Nigeria.
Talking about how he got featured on one of his biggest movies, Hush, he stated that “if you have people supporting you, anything is possible, and so Hush, actually happened because of my friend Chris Attoh”.
He added: “Chris is like a big brother and he is one of those people who took me in and said listen I believe in you and I am going to try and do whatever I can for you.
“He knew that I was interested in doing one or two things, so he was actually the one who went to fight for me with Mnet and said there is this guy you need to meet.”
Mawuli further said that his main turning point was when he got called by the team Chris had spoken to and it came as a shock to him because he didn’t know anyone in Nigeria and had never been there.
“I had to now decide am I going to take the lead, broke at the time but I gathered my last cash and said let me take the risk. Somebody has gone to fight for me, this is an opportunity to work with one of the biggest networks in the world.”
The model added that he got called after that meeting in Nigeria and for what he thought he was going to be spending some weeks shooting movies there ended up being a whole year and, he is currently in his third year in the country.
Some of his movies are the ‘Castle and Castle’ and ‘Chief Daddy’.
Mawuli, who is also known to be ladies’ favourite, further stated that he doesn’t believe his looks alone got him the roles he played but it took something more than looks to be featured on movies.
