Ghanaian comedian and actor, Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng popularly known as Funny face has disclosed that Castro introduced him to music.
Funny face was promoting his new album titled “Animal Kingdom “ and told Ola of peace fm in an interview that he wants to use the money to build a children’s park and so urged Ghanaians to listen to his new album.
“The Animal Kingdom album is long overdue. It was actually Castro who introduced me to music and I have recorded different songs over the years.
“I have sold over 1,000 copies and I want to use the money to build a children’s park”, he said.
However, he disclosed that having problems with his wife and not being able to see his children put him through depression which made him do a lot of things.
Over the last few weeks, the comedian was seen crying and showing his disappointments on social media which involves his family issues but later apologized to his fans after they showed their disappointments and displeasure about how he handled the issue.
Speaking to Ola on Saturday 4 July on peace fm, he said “Having problems with my wife and not getting access to my children made me go through a lot of things and I reacted in a way I shouldn’t. I am sorry it will never happen again.”
He added that he said all of those out of depression. “I am sorry I overreacted. I said so many things that I shouldn’t have said when I was going through difficulties, I was going through depression”.
According to Funny Face, there are so many fake people in the entertainment industry and so he does not have any friends in the industry.
In his statement, the comedian said “I confided in some friends in the entertainment industry when I was going through difficulties but they gave me out. As we speak now I don’t have any friends in the industry because they are all fake people.”
The actor/comedian revealed that he believes these are his trial times and he has learnt so many lessons from it including not trusting people.
“I think one of my problems is that I trust people too much and I become disappointed and hurt when that trust is broken. Thanks to Bola Ray and Emmanuel Adebayor for the advice they gave me. They were very helpful,” he said.
