Fast rising Ghanaian actor and YouTube comedy star, Richard Asante popularly known as Kalybos has denied reports he and other crew members were arrested in China while they shooting their maiden movie there.
According to the reports, “Kalybos was arrested in China for breaking one of their [China’s] laws.
…he was taken to the police station where his offence was made known to him. But then, he was not the only one arrested, his manager and producer for the Boys Kasa skits was also arrested for the same offence.
The famed young actor in an interview with Peace FM’s Akwasi Aboagye said on the Entertainment Review Show that the crew only had a minor confrontation with some police officers in China because they were shooting the a movie without an interpreter.
He recounted that, as they were on location shooting the movie, some officers close by approached them and requested their permit which they couldn’t readily produce. The police halted the production and demanded to see their interpreter who arrived a while later.
“We were not taken to the police station. They only asked to see our interpreter before allowing us continue shooting so immediately our interpreter came everything was settled and we continued with our work” he said.
