Ghana’s wonder kid, Abraham Attah has won yet another prestigious international award for ‘Best Male Lead’ at the 2016 Independent Spirits Awards held at Santa Monica Beach, Califonia Saturday night.


The awards scheme, originally known as FINDIE or Friends of Independent Awards was founded in 1984, and dedicated to independent filmmakers.

In 1986, it was renamed Independent Spirit Awards.

This is Attah’s third major award since the movie was premiered.

His first was the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor at the Venice Film Festival 2015.

He then won ‘Rising Star Award’ at the Black Fim Critics Circle (BFCC).

Abraham Attah played the lead role of Agu, who when civil war tears his family apart, is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters and transformed into a child soldier.
