Filaman, real name Joseph Appiah is an award-winning Ghanaian actor and a musician. He is the blood brother of Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu and the only famous sibling among his other four.
Filaman Ghana, Kwaku Manu’s younger brother, was born in Ahasonyewodea in Obuasi, the Ashanti Region of Ghana. He is the fourth child of a professional shoemaker Agya Yaw Nimo from New Edubiase, and his wife, a native of Amankyem.
He attended St. Joseph Primary and JHS, a Catholic School in Obuasi, and proceeded to Agona SDA SHS, where he completed in 2014. He holds a WASSCE certificate.
Fila was once a footballer. He, however, decided to hang up his boots to go into acting, and he started acting in 2018. Yet, he needs no introduction as one of the comic skit makers in Ghana.
He has so far won four Awards as an entertainer. These awards include Social Media influencer Of The Year at the Obuasi Youth Awards 2021, Best Comedian Of the Year at Ashanti Premium Awards 2021, Actor of The Year at Ghana Entertainment Choice Awards 2020, and Comedian Of The Year at Legendary Award Ghana 2021.
