Budding Young Actor – Musician, Christian Mawuenyega (Chris Jay) Pledges to Influence Industry Positively
To be recognised for one’s efforts and dedication is certainly an achievement. That is the story of Christian Mawuenyega, a level 300 student of the University of Education, Winneba, a fast-rising actor and musician among others nominated for the hall of fame of ‘Rising Star of the Year’ in the 2020 edition of the National Students Awards Ghana (NSAG).
Young Christian is hopeful that the award if won, will go a long way to encourage him to push harder and also place him on a higher pedestal in the industry and the market.
Speaking in an interview with Newswatchgh.com, he expressed appreciation for his nomination for the award and thanked his team mates and the media group for their immense contribution and hard work to see this come to a reality, despite the challenges.
Christian Mawuenyega recounted that his work as an actor caught the eyes of many which earned him a nomination as one of the top actors on campus. And he had a lot of ‘likes’ on social media for that.
Apparently, he was incited to enter the competition because his team made a full TV series on campus to educate the youth, which is one of the things he is passionate about. He believes he can win the prestigious award.
Christian told Newwatchgh.com that, acting and music has become a great part of his life and he is very anxious, as well as excited, and looking forward to winning the award because it’s probably the first time he is going to win something big for himself.
When asked about his other experiences, he said he is currently the guitarist for Lord Bondzie of NoTribe and he has also clogged for himself a couple of movies, shooting in Accra, Winneba, Kumasi and Agogo.
Apart from music and acting, Christian is also gifted and learned in the field of sound recording, video editing and product advertising.
Christian Mawuenyega was born on November 19, 1994 and will turn 26 very soon.
He attended St. Paul’s Senior High School, Kukrantumi in the Eastern Region of Ghana but couldn’t continue due to some health problems.
He later enrolled at Ashley’s Business College at Kaneshie, Accra. He is now successfully studying at the University of Education, Winneba.
