Ghanaian comedian Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, popularly known as Funny Face, has revealed that the bad smell of his armpit, before his rise to fame, caused a woman to prophesy over his life.
Funny Face said life was very challenging for him several years back without money to cater for some of his needs, a situation which resulted in a daily walk from the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra to Tema in order to have a minute talk on the radio.
“At first, when I pass by you the smell of my armpit will minister to you. I went close to a woman at Tema, the woman called me [and asked], ‘young man why, what is wrong with you’? The [bad] scent was too much,” he recounted.
He said the woman told him: “Whatever you are looking for, God will answer you one day. The smell of my armpit caused someone to prophesy over my life,” he told Nana Romeo on Accra100.5FM’s Ayekoo Ayekoo show on Thursday, 1 August 2019.
Funny Face also revealed his presidential ambitions to lead Ghana’s executive arm of government in the next three elections to be held in the country.
He said: “By 12 years time, I will be the President of this country. In 12 years I will be the President of Ghana”.
The 'Cow and Chicken' actor noted that although politics was not part of his initial plans as an entertainer, he wants “to do more for the children of Ghana” hence his new ambitions.
One key feat he said he hopes to achieve is the establishment of a theme park or amusement park in Ghana.
For him, the establishment of a school is not part of his plans but an amusement park to “get something close to Disneyland [in the US] in Ghana and name if Funny World”.
