Registered Nurse | TV Presenter | Actor | Blogger
My name is Edward A. Ganesh, but I'm commonly known as Ganesh in the entertainment industry. I'm the only son of my parents, and my father, Kingsley Aboagye, was a former footballer. During my secondary education at Akyem Akroso, I discovered my passion for acting and participated in various drama activities, which fueled my desire to pursue a career in the field. In 2020, I made my acting debut with the movie "The Struggle of a Girl Child," and since then, I've featured in several other productions, including the "Opana" TV series. Besides acting, I'm a skilled MC who has hosted numerous events, thanks to my ability to blend humor with professionalism. I'm honored to have played lead roles in several TV series, including "The Struggle of a Girl Child" and "Opana," which allowed me to work with esteemed production houses like Venus Films and S2y Productions. Before establishing myself as a comic actor, I was a professional props and set designer, a skill set that served me well in the film industry. As the CEO of my production house, "B.O Productions," I take pride in producing quality content that resonates with audiences. I've also worked as a commercial model for various companies, including emred.com. Beyond my entertainment career, I'm a motivational speaker who focuses on inspiring the youth. I believe that with hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude, anyone can achieve their dreams. Lastly, I must acknowledge my mother's unwavering support, which has been instrumental in my success.

Breaking into the entertainment industry can be a daunting task.

However, I learned that persistence and consistency are key to success.
I invested in my craft by taking acting classes, workshops, and training to improve my skills and showcase my talent. Networking with other industry professionals and seeking out mentors who could guide and support me also played a significant role in my journey. In addition, I used social media and other platforms to promote my work and expand my audience.
