Ghanaian actor and movie producer, Adjetey Anang has recounted how his role as a notorious player in “Things We Do For Love” movie series affected his life.

“But it’s not always the disadvantage. I do experience the good side. It feels good,” he told Stacy Amoateng on Restoration.

“Pusher for me was a combination of three characters. There was this mate in school who had a walk similar to Pusher but I exaggerated it.

And then of course this other guy who would talk and melt your heart. So guided by Ivan Quashigah and the writer, we brought this character to life.”
“It was definitely a platform that gave me that life. Previously, we were doing Thursday Theatre on TV but Pusher just exploded. It was something I was unprepared for… It brought some pressure to really make sure I keep getting better. It meant working harder…”
