Renowned Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang, known for his remarkable achievements in the film and entertainment industry is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow actor, Yvonne Nelson with a memoir to mark his 50th birthday in a grand manner this year.
In an interview with Felicia Osei on the mid-morning show, “Adwumadwuma” on Onua FM, Adjetey Anang expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming memoir release and the launch of the One in a Million Foundation.
According to him, the event was originally planned for July 7 but the launch event was moved to Saturday, July 8, 2023, to allow for a more auspicious celebration.
“My memoir is coming out on the 8th of July, my birthday is on the 7th but because it fell on Friday, we moved the launch to the 8th which is a Saturday,” he explained.
The foundation will engage one hundred influential individuals, including Anang’s colleagues, mentors, and their families, who will contribute 1 Cedi per day for a decade.
The goal according to the award-winning actor is to accumulate a substantial fund that can be utilized to offer free medical screenings and assistance to beneficiaries across all regions of Ghana.
“I also will be unveiling my foundation and the focus is on mothers and children. There are some children who have never accessed medical care so we want to offer free screening. The name of my foundation is one in a million. 1 in a million because I’m gathering one hundred influencers who will contribute 1 Cedi per day for 10 years,” he shared.
He also revealed the broad reach of the foundation’s initiatives, aiming to positively impact communities beyond Accra, reaching every region of Ghana.
“These 100 influencers are people I’ve worked with, my mentors and their families. At the end of the 10th year and it’s not focused on just accra, it’s every region,” he pointed out
Anang who played ‘Pusher’ in ‘Things We Do For Love’ said the team has also initiated discussions with the National Health Insurance to oversee the financial aspects of the foundation.
“We’re speaking to the National Health Insurance to take care of the cash so nobody’s money is abused so that all the beneficiaries can benefit from it,” he said.
The memoir is expected to be a compelling read.
On Saturday, July 8, 2023, a multifaceted event at the Skybox Event Centre in Accra will serve as the culmination of the golden jubilee birthday celebrations.
