About a month ago, movie producer and director Leila Djansi posted on social network Face book that actor Frank Artus was one of the worst things that had happened to the movie sector and asked that he quit acting to secure another job or went back to school.
“There are some Ghana actors who should not be acting. Tomorrow, I might name some. But seriously, anyone who loves the actor Frank Artus should tell him to get another job. This is not fair. Some people try way too hard at it”, Leila wrote on Face book.
Speaking to Frank Artus, he told Flex Newspaper Reporter (Mustapha Ayinde Inusah) AKA Attractive that, because anybody could just wake up and post a statement or a story on Face book, twitter and other social media, he wouldn't really take online posts and stories serious.
“I have been a victim of all sorts of online rumors when people will claim someone posted it on twitter, face book, Blackberry and the rest, so I don't really take anything that comes from such platforms serious until they are well proven,” he said.
When we asked what his reaction would be if he found out that Leila really wrote that on Facebook, Frank replied thus: “Honestly, I don't know Leila. I have no idea who she is. I personally have no idea what she does. I have not seen her movies before and I don't know how her movies look like. The only thing I know is a few movie people mention her name, so it will be hard to comment on someone whom I don't know.”
He added that if he is to assess the words of Leila, he would say her statement is baseless, senseless, childish and has no connection with him. “If she's the one saying that, then she might be an attention seeker,” he stated.
