The name Diabolo Man, in Ghana and even some parts of the world, was synonymous with snakes. Many simply feared the man even in real life.
His antics in his movies and how he metamorphosed into a snake, made him famous in Ghana.
Bob Smith Jr., as he is known in real life, did not only have encounters with snakes in movies. He actually lived with some at home.
The executive member of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) has revealed that he used to have snakes in his house.
The veteran actor, speaking in an interview with Sammy Forson on the Cosmopolitan Mix Joy FM, revealed that, he lived with three snakes at home.
“I used to have three snakes in my house. I learnt about snakes. I don’t fear snakes,” he stated.
Asked about the history behind the famous snake movies, Bob Smith Jr. recounted that he, together with a producer called William Akuffo, came together to produce ‘Diabolo’.
He said ‘Diabolo’ was based on the experiences of Ghanaians who traveled to seek greener pastures in countries like Nigeria.
According to him, they produced the movie based on the horrifying stories some of the females who engaged in prostitution shared.
