I dropped out of school in Class 2 - Sumsum reveals

Ghanaian actor, Sunsum has revealed that he did not have the opportunity to continue school after Class 2 due to some situations.

He also disclosed that life at a point became so difficult that he had to beg and sell “polythene bag” to survive.

"I have to go and sell a polythene bag for my family to survive sometimes I go to town with 3 blind people to beg on the road to cater for my mother and sibling," he continued.

Sumsum has featured in movies like Bosom Ba, Handsome Paddies, Good Morning, Ogya Sunsum, Abr) Ne Bayie and many more.
