The UK diplomat has always made fun of the ‘Baby Thief’ actor on social media – prominent among which was Dumelo’s infamous V8 saga in which he was reported to have been given a V8 vehicle by the previous government.


The UK diplomat also suffered at the hands of Ghanaians on social media for his supposed comic commentary on certain issues while he worked in Ghana.

John Dumelo got married on 12th May, 2018 in a private ceremony at Spintex in Accra to Gifty Mawunya Nkornu.

Dumelo is a Ghanaian actor. He was nominated for categories Most Promising Actor and Best Actor in a Supporting Role at the 6th and 7th Africa Movie Academy Awards respectively.
