“I think Papa J is one of the greatest leaders Ghana has ever had. The way he speaks… He can sell you pig in a bag. The media just love his utterances. This is a man whose presence alone says a thousand words. Without saying a single word, he appears and he has said so many things by just looking at him. Can I say I want to be like him? He inspires me in so many different ways. Who knows? I’m walking in his footsteps.” Multiple awards winning actor and philanthropist, Van Vicker has passionately spoken of his admiration for the former president of Ghana, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings.
Papa J.’s personality is second to none and that is one thing that tickles the actor who has publicly asked for the former president’s blessings. This he told the media who came to celebrate the 70th birthday celebration of J.J.
Van, who himself is a charismatic fellow, thinks that, that of the former president is incomparable, unrivaled and for so many reasons inspiring.
