Veteran Actor Prince Yawson, popularly called Waakye, has stated ,the acting profession is a possible way to win souls for Christ.
He informed show host Black Face on Accra100.5FMs drivetime show on Monday, 24 May 2021 that acting is “a platform that can be used to preach and change people”.
“God uses broken vessels to transform lives”, he stated, adding: “God used Paul who prosecuted Christians”.
“…It’s my wish that my children and grandchildren follow my line of work and do the work of God,” he added up.
The actor-now-pastor in addition profiled how he profited from his acting career.
“I’ll never say anywhere that acting wasn’t good to me”.
“I learnt a lot from acting, I got a lot of exposure from acting”, he mentioned.
He noted: “I sat in a plane without paying a dime because of acting”.
Waakye continued: “I didn’t even go for the visa myself”.
“The only time I went for a visa, as soon as the consular saw me, he recognised me and started having a normal conversation with me”, he recalled.
“He asked how much I make a month and I told him I couldn’t tell him how much I made in a month. He still gave me the visa because of the fame”.
“Acting is not robbery, it is a decent job… I don’t show off on social media but I’ve gained a lot from acting,” he stressed.
