My memoir is carefully written not to destroy others to sell— Adjetey Anang

Multiple award winning actor, Adjetey Anang, has assured that his memoir chronicling his 50years life and experiences will have good impact on the youth as it is carefully written not to destroy others in order to sell.

According to him, the public judges one based on the contents he or she puts out as part of a life story and cited “I am Not Yvonne Nelson” as one of the memoirs generating moral issues.

“With such a memoir, you need to be careful with what you put out there because people will judge you with it. A typical example is I Am Not Yvonne Nelson, which has brought a whole lot of issues.”

“Inasmuch as it is about you, you need to be careful what you put in there. I don’t believe anyone writes an autobiography to destroy others just to sell,” he added.

Speaking in an interview with the media, Adjetey Anang who doubles as a lecturer at National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI) admitted that his life had not been a bed of roses and he narrated some of the challenges he faced in life as an actor, a father and a husband in his book to educate the youth.

“Ghanaians think I am okay and not bothered by anything but I have a lot of issues. I just manage to keep them out of the public eye and create the image of that perfect character. In this world, everyone has issues. It is just left with you to deal with them,” he said.

Adjetey Anang noted that the memoir which would be launched on Saturday July 8 in Accra, talked about his story of faith through trials, imperfections as human and his resilience to lead an exemplary life that would motivate others to bring the best in them, hence the title: “Adjetey Anang: A Story of Faith, Imperfection and Resilience.”

Adjetey Anang also said he would launch his foundation alongside the book launch to support the country in the best way he could.

The actor shot to fame as “Pusher”, a screen name in a television series titled “Things We Do for Love” in the year 2003.

He has starred in movies including Deadly Voyage, A Sting in a Tale, Sugar, The Perfect Picture – Ten Years Later and Gold Coast Lounge. He has also featured in a Dutch movie titled Slavery.
