Award-winning Ghanaian international filmmaker, Leila Djansi has advised Cary Fukunaga, director for Abraham Attah’s breakthrough movie, ‘Beasts Of No Nation’ to relocate the young actor to America because his career cannot be sustained in Ghana.
In Leila’s Facebook post titled “LOOKING FORWARD TO GHANA AT THE OSCARS … ONE DAY.”, she also cried for the boy who won Best actor award last Saturday at the Independent Spirit Awards.
I am so happy for Abraham Attah. I am also sad for him at the same time. Because, unfortunately, unless Cary and co make that smart decision to relocate Abraham Attah to the US, his career cannot be sustained in Ghana. It’s Monday y’all. Award season is OVER. DONE. Roles for him are few and far between in Hollywood if he is not visible. It’s hard for child stars.
She continued to list factors she thinks Ghanaian movie-makers should follow in order to also get to the Oscars. Below is an unedited post Leila Djansi posted on Facebook

Sonnie Badu in his post said the pull him down syndrome in the country will hinder the progress of the actor should he stay in Ghana.
