Ghanaian actor Fred Nii Amugi has been honoured by Despite Media Group and Hisense for his sterling role in the movie industry.
Amugi who was a guest on United Showbiz hosted by actress Nana Ama McBrown was presented with Five Thousand Ghana Cedis [GH¢5,000] cheque, 65-inch Television and 4-Double Door Fridge from Hisense Ghana Limited.
The Ghana movie industry has made significant strides despite its many challenges.
Several industry players have complained bitterly about why Ghanaian veteran actors had been neglected by the industry.
Many believe that there is a need to acknowledge the pacesetters in the film industry for the outstanding roles they have played. They have set the tone and the foundation for what many proudly boast of in the Ghana movie industry.
The 71 years old actor showed his appreciation to UTV and Hisense for the kind gesture.
Amugi began his acting career in 1970 in Drama and Documentaries until 1985 when he starred in his first movie ‘Opinto’. The television series brought him into the limestone.
The veteran actor has appeared in numerous movie roles, including local Ghanaian movies, Shoe Shine Boy (2013), Nyame Bekyere 1&2 (2015), Menua Paa Nie (2016), Housekeepers (2016) among others. His first international role came in 2005 when he played the character Kwame Attakora in the BBC drama Holby City.
