Lexis Bill apologizes to Abraham Attah after mocking him on radio

Drivetime host on Joy FM, Kwame Sakyiamah aka Lexis Bill has rendered an apology on social media after he is said to have mocked the rise of actor Abraham Attah.

Social media was awash with angry comments from across the world with audience venting their anger on the radio presenter’s attempt to shoot down a rising Ghanaian star.

Abraham Attah, 15, played child soldier, Agu, in a Netflix production ‘Beast of No Nation’ alongside British actor, Idris Elba.

Attah was at the 88th Academy Awards Sunday to present an award.

Opening his radio show, March 1, Lexis apologised to Attah as well as his listeners and asked for forgiveness.

Read Lexis’ apology below

Yesterday on my show, Drive Time on Joy 99.7FM, we carried a story about talented young Ghanaian actor Abraham Attah presenting an award at the 2016 Oscars and another of him picking the award for ‘Best Male Lead’ at the 2016 Spirit Awards.

As part of the story, we played Abraham’s acceptance speech at the Spirit Awards. Subsequently, I repeated how the gifted actor said ‘Thank you, Thank you’ in a bid to thank my co-presenter and producers.

With the benefit of hindsight, I admit that the mimicking was in bad taste and I sincerely apologise to Abraham and you my cherished audience. I wish to state that I never intended to undermine the achievements of Abraham Attah. That was never the intention.

I deeply regret any offence the comments may have caused. That is not who I am. I, like many Ghanaians, have celebrated the achievements of Master Attah and won’t deliberately say anything that is remotely related to belittling him.

I apologise to all.

Thank You.

Lexis Bill
