Following a recent outburst, Funny Face was sent to a psychiatric hospital by police for further evaluation.

A Kaneshie District Court has ordered that comic actor Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, also known as Funny Face, be re-examined at the Psychiatric Hospital.

The Kaneshie District Court had charged him with one count of threatening death.
Despite the fact that the charge was read to him in court by His Lordship Kofi Oheneba-Kuffour, his plea was not accepted due to his behavior.


On Wednesday, October 20, Funny Face caused a stir in court when he revealed that he had lawyers but had told them not to come because he had caused his own problems.

The prosecution, led by ASP Sylvester Asare, told the court not to listen to the accused person’s plea because they believe he is unstable.
