Veteran Actor Diabolo Speaks-Women Used To Runaway From Me For Fear They Will Turn Into Snakes
Veteran actor, Bob Smith Jnr, has disclosed how he suffered for playing the role of a ‘snakeman’ (Diabolo) especially women and children who used to runaway from for fear that they will turn into snakes.
He says his role as a snake-turning man in the early 2000s popular movie, Diabolo, caused him a great deal when it came to relationship matters.
Most often than not, Ghanaians are not able to distinguish between reality and the movies roles and project their feeling on the roles played unto actors.
The case was not any different for Mr Smith Jnr., who was known for metamorphosing into a snake in movies to sleep with women who end up vomiting money.
Speaking in an exclusive interview on Kumasi-based Pure FM with Hammer Nti, he indicated that he had it difficult securing a life partner after he perfectly acted out his ‘snake’ character in the ‘Diabolo’ movie.
According to him, women rejected his proposal due to their scare of him turning into a snake in the future.
Hammer, you know I had it difficult getting a woman into a relationship with and marrying. All the ones I proposed to rejected me because they thought maybe I will turn into a snake in the future.
The one that I’m married to never watched the Diabolo movie by then so I was lucky. It was later into our marriage that she watched it and she asked me why I would act that role but you know, we were already married so there was nothing she could do.
