According to the popular actor, he pursued a suicide mission which was halted by Christian Atsu. In a video making rounds on the internet, Mr Ofori said he contemplated suicide at a time when he was trending out of a certain false accusation.

Without detailing what exactly he was accused of, Samuel Ofori said at a time while he was away in Germany, he trended for the wrong reasons in Ghana.

I was so frustrated at that time that I neglected all calls, but when I saw his, I answered. He was worried about me and asked for my side of the story. After I narrated everything to him, he motivated me to ignore it because it was a trivial issue. What he did not know was that if that call had not come, I would have drank something poisonous. Just the single call changed my life,” he said.

In a video shared on his FaceBook page, the actor said not only did Atsu comfort him but also explained things to his wife who was entirely disturbed by the rumour. The actor emphasised that Christain Atsu’s intervention helped him to move on.

Revealing how his relationship with the late footballer started, the filmmaker disclosed that the footballer once called to compliment him after watching his 2019 movie, ‘Make Up Girls’ which features actress Jessica Williams.
