Early Life & Education
Eddie Watson being a citizen of Liberia was born in Monrovia, Liberia where he grew up to a certain extent. He completed his primary and secondary school education but we don’t know what institution he attended exactly. However, we were able to find out that he attended university where he studied a course related to art just to pursue his acting career.
Eddie Watson is an actor I will always have something to say about, what baffles me most times is the way he is taking the entertainment industry in West Africa to another level. Another thing is the fact that he was born in Liberia, from Ghana, and is making waves in both Nigeria, Ghana, and Liberia’s movie industry.
Around 2010 when he started making waves, Eddie Watson was the talk of the town leaving many tongues wagging. The movie Labour of Love released in 2010 marked the beginning of his fame in the entertainment industry. Then, Eddie Watson knew he hadn’t gotten so much fame and was just starting up so he had to put all his effort into acting to show the world what he was made of.
However, Eddie Watson didn’t stop there, he was featured in another famous movie Somewhere In Africa; the Cries of Humanity. This exact movie gave him fame especially in Nigeria and in Ghana. What helped him was the featuring of already established actors in the likes of;
- Majid Michael
- Martha Ankomah
- Kofi Adjorlolo
- Roselyn Ngissah
- David Dontoh
And more to mention. This helped him in the sense that he wasn’t famous then so starring those big actors in the movie made everyone want to watch it and in the process, he was noticed.
About my experience I promised to share with you later on in this article, here is it. So I was eager to watch one movie in which one of my favorite actors, Eddie Watson was featured. I was so obsessed with the television, after 2 hours of watching the movie, that was when I realized food was on the gas cooker. The house almost got burnt because the kitchen was already on fire, it was only God who saved me that day.
