Why I cast Ramsey Nouah for my movie ‘A Country Ghana’ – LilWin reveals


Ghanaian actor Kwadwo Nkansah, better known as LilWin, recently discussed the reasoning behind casting Nollywood star Ramsey Nouah in the lead role for his film “A Country Called Ghana.”

When LilWin first revealed his cast list, which included Nigerian actors Ramsey Nouah, Charles Awurum, and Victor Osuagwu, alongside Ghana’s Paa George, many questioned his choice of Nigerian leads.

LilWin clarified that he aimed to create international interest in the film and secure a Netflix slot, which influenced his decision to include foreign actors.

During an interview on Hitz FM on May 13, 2024, LilWin disclosed that he initially selected a Ghanaian actor for the lead role but later opted for Ramsey Nouah.

“At first, the cast was entirely Ghanaian. However, to boost our chances with Netflix, I suggested including international talent like Awilo Sharp Sharp and Charles Awugah,” he explained.

He elaborated that the original lead actor, a Ghanaian, asked for a higher fee upon learning of the involvement of foreign actors.

“We had everything set, including the costume fittings. But then, he demanded more money after hearing about the Nigerian actors,” LilWin revealed.

After negotiations failed, LilWin decided to replace the actor. Despite initial challenges, they successfully recruited Ramsey Nouah within a tight timeframe.

“We were fortunate to secure Ramsey Nouah’s participation within those 10 days. It was a bit of a scramble, but it worked out in the end,” LilWin concluded.
