MEET KUMAWOOD ACTOR YAW DABO, ALSO OWNER & BANKROLLER OF 3 FOOTBALL TEAMS IN KUMASI.
You probably would know him as the budding Kumawood comedian who is making waves in the Ghanaian movie industry, starring in over 60 local movies.
Born Samuel Nana Yaw Dabo, and his stage name is “Dabo” aka Adwen Kessie (big brain). Though 17 years but has been speculated to be older than his age apparently due to his mannerism and amazing sense.
Aside his acting roles, the 17 year old sensation his disclosed that he had immense passion for football before eventually venturing into the movie industry, because he couldn’t take football as a profession because of his lilliputian stature.
But the “Megye Wo Girl” actor has revealed owning three football teams- all of which he solely finance as the bankroller.
In an exclusive interview with Accra-based Atinka FM, Yaw Dabo opened up on his football club, the Apostle Stars, which he acquired from fellow Kumawood actor Apostle John Prah a year ago, and has been the sole financier ever since.
“People watch us in movies and think we only fool but actually we also have our personal interests in other fields”, He said.
“I am a ardent football man and I own three teams in the colts division with an U-10, 14 and U-17 teams”,
“All these have very talented players that I havge scouted and we play matches every weekend, I have to pay for the expenses of the matches and I have invested so much into the club because I want to help the youngsters develop on their talents”,
On how he sees football administration and the hustle in owning a football club, Dabo lamented on the lack of support for grassroot football in Ghana, calling on the Ghana Football Association to turn attention to the youth level.
“Nyantakyi is my friend, I met on on several occasions but my worry is that we don’t pay much attention to grassroot football like the Europeans do”, He said.
“Our premier league is dying because we don’t produce enough talents at the grassroot level to beef our teams so there is no quality on display at the league centres”.
The 2015 Kumawood Award winner also revealed that he sometimes acts as the coach for his teams in matches because he feels most of the coaches are not good enough.
“I employ coaches but sometimes I coach my teams in matches and we win”,
“Sometime ago, I employed a coach and gave him a two-month probation but he failed so I had to take over, and we ended up winning all matches and with good number of goals”. He added.
Dabo brought more humor, more wit and more excitement than any other ‘Kumawood’ actor in 2015 and was one of the main reasons the local film industry stayed afloat.
But the ‘Big Brain’ comedian has also shown his other side, a staunch Manchester United fan, and a bank-roller of three football teams, which forms the Apostle Stars.
