Comic actor Benson Nana Yaw Oduro Boateng, famed as Funny Face has appeared before Kaneshie District Magistrate Court on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 following his recent arrest.
The actor who was arrested for threatening to kill his baby mama and others told the court that he has ‘mental issues’ and proceeded to cause laughter in the courtroom during the hearing.
Funny Face was asked by the magistrate of the Kaneshie District Court why he did not come to court with his lawyer and he replied “My Lord, I have lawyers but I feel they shouldn’t come. I caused my own problems because I didn’t take my drugs. I have mental issues.”
He further went to tell the court that his love for his children that have been taken away by his baby mama has affected his psychological health.
“My Lord, I love girls (children) and once she (his wife) took the twins away, I went off. She was pregnant when she left with my twins. She knew I love children, so she was playing on my mind” he told the court.
The court ordered that the comedian should be sent to the Accra Psychiatric Hospital to undergo a psychiatric re-examination.
Funny Face’s appearance in court saw a number of famous showbiz personalities coming around to support him.
Among them were broadcaster Kofi Adoma Nwanwani and Kumawood actor Kwadwo Lil Win who was one of the subjects of Funny Face’s threats.
In a video sighted on Instagram , Funny Face is seen embracing Lil Win and shaking his hands while being whisked away by the police.
