Veteran Ghanaian actor, Adjetey Anang, has offered valuable advice to aspiring young creatives, particularly those in the acting realm, emphasizing that relying solely on talent is insufficient for achieving the pinnacle of success in their careers.
During an exclusive interview with the media, the “Things We Do for Love” actor conveyed the notion that talent in its raw form, though a natural endowment, necessitates further refinement to reach its full potential.
“You need to add value to your talent, talent is raw, it’s just nature’s gift m, so it has to be refined,” he said.
Adjetey stressed the importance of augmenting one’s talent by acquiring and honing relevant skills to enhance its impact and utility.
“Raw talent on its own can only take you to a certain level, you can not go beyond that but the skill has enough ways through which one can ride on to the top” he added.
Drawing from personal experience, Adjetey recounted a poignant moment where he learned the hard way about the perils of relying solely on talent. He vividly described an instance early in his career when he found himself unprepared and blank on stage, highlighting the necessity of adequate preparation and skill development for a flourishing career in acting.
