Sadly, he was seen off the television screens as years passed by. And he was not the only actor or movie personality seen away from the screens or from acting.

Fred Amugi revealed that during the era of Jerry John Rawlings, the movie sector was struggling and did not even have an office to operate. Former president Jerry John Rawlings seeing these challenges decided to make an impact and improve the movie industry which made him build a very comfortable and accommodating office for them (the film makers)
And from him, this office is currently being used by the movie industry till now to carry out their daily movie schedules. And this is one of the most brilliant steps he took during his reign as the president of the Republic of Ghana.
