Ras Nene, better known as Dr. Likee, Ghana’s favorite comedian, has reminisced about the days when he first began making short films, revealing that he had to shoot on his phone at times.
According to him, the encouragement was lacking at the time, leaving him with no choice but to document his imagination using a personal phone with a camera app.
Dr. Likee said on United Showbiz with Nana Ama MCbrown that the basic stage was never convenient. He admitted that he was on the verge of giving up when nothing was coming to light.
“I recall going to a certain man for help in obtaining a camera, which I had hoped to use for my skits. I told the guy how much I wanted and he asked how much I wanted.
When I told this guy, he said, “How are you going to spend this money on this?” In reality, the man was rather discouraging to me.
I was using an Infinix phone at the time, and you know how good the camera on Infinix phones is, so I said to myself, “Why not use the camera on my phone for the shoot?” So I shot it with my Infinix phone. Dr. Likee retold the tale.
With his short films practically strewn around Ghana, Dr. Likee has become a household name.
