Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang popularly known as “Pusher”, has said actors and actresses fail to further upgrade on their quality and extent of their acts when they are highly praised by their devotees.

He said, many actors and actresses are still novice in the industry because they feel they have arrived in their acting career.

The award winning actor on After Hours on TV 3 with Mikki Osei Berko shared his experience on how he feels when he’s referred to as one of Ghana’s best actors.

“I used to be swollen headed but not anymore and I’ve learnt bitter lesson. The moment you begin to feel that then you don’t find ways in improving anymore and you will come to a point where you say to yourself ‘I’ve arrived’ and it limits how far you can go.”

Talking about his prospect as an ‘Acting for Screen’ lecturer at NAFTI and Accra Film School, Adjetey Anang disclosed mentoring and nurturing new talents in the industry to surpass him.

“I would’ve produced from the teaching sector people who are far better than me. I’m seeing some serious ones who are up and coming and I’ve asked them to look out for my weakness and make it their strength and so this is some of the things I’m hopeful these young ones will pick up and we would have some good hope for this industry.”

Adjetey Anang, steadily meanders his way through to the top and currently remains one of the most adorable and relevant Ghanaian screen icons of our time.

He became a household name late 1999 and early 2000, when he played the character ‘Pusher’ in the rested TV series, Things We Do For Love, on GTV. Those days every youth in the country was fond of Pusher and mimicked his talent and the role he was playing in the series.
