Kumawood Actor, Joseph Osei popularly known as ‘Wayoosi’ has said that performing excellently in a job has nothing to do with his inability to speak good English language.
In a telephone interview with DAILY HERITAGE, the actor confirmed his interest in vying for the deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts (MoTCCA) position.
“I’m interested in the deputy MoTCCA position. I’m competent when it comes to handling public office though I’ve not handled any public office before. I may not be good in English language but excelling has nothing to do with language.
“Productivity is the hallmark of every employee not language efficiency. I’ll employ a translator when appointed and by so doing I’ll be helping the people to take care of a family,” he said.
Who becomes the deputy minister for MoTCCA after the mention of madam Catherine Afeku as minister-designate has seen a lot of lobbying, as some of the industry players believe they fit to work diligently at the said ministry.
Key among them are, Mr. Socrates Sarfo, Mr. Kwadwo Antwi and Mark Okraku-Mantey who has been in the news to have rejected the slot when he was consulted.
Wayoosi is an alma mater of the College of Arts at the Cabin in Kumasi. He is a painter by profession before becoming an actor. He had his secondary school education at Kings International School, Kumasi.
Wayoosi featured in his first movie role in ‘Awiee’ and acted with the likes of Master Richard, Suzzy Williams, a late actress, Judas and Agya Koo.
