Last week Saturday the 6th of December 2019 at the premiere of ‘Fix Us’ Starring actor Prince Dave Osei among others, the red carpet at the Silverbird Cinemas turned into a party as Van Calebs, a fan of actor Prince Dave Osei, surprised the award winning actor with a birthday cake while he was taking photos with fans on the red carpet. Van stated that birthday’s are special and should be treated as such; especially for people who you cherish and respect.
Van Calebs, who is also a friend of actor Prince Dave Osei, had made a special arrangement for a cake to be hidden at the ice cream section at the Silverbird Cinemas inside the Accra Mall on Friday. He then called the actor with the pretence of alerting him on how the fans were about to leave the cinemas since they had seen the first premiere of the movie, hence the need for him to hurry down to the venue. Actor Prince Dave Osei who was checking in at the airport for a trip to London that evening, quickly rushed to the Silverbird Cinemas at the Accra Mall only to be surprised by his birthday gift. Van Calebs said it was a present for a deserving personality. “Prince Dave Osei is one of the most humble and practical actors in Ghana. He speaks his mind on issues and also does his best to help young and upcoming film makers in Ghana by not charging his standard fees when approached by them. He is also a role model and an inspiration to many actors. After featuring in a Hollywood movie, he still remained humble and works with Ghanaian movie productions; he hasn’t forgotten his roots and where he started from. Personally, I have planned so many times to surprise him but other factors screwed it up. But, this time I got it right”, he said.
Van Calebs is also a film producer and an events’ organiser with some experience in advertising and promotions. He has worked with some celebrities in Ghana and occasionally offers his opinions on matters in the entertainment industry in Ghana on television and social media platforms.
