In an interview with Rev. Erskine of YFM in July 2021, Mr. Blankson said that working on the set of “Checkmate” was his favorite time spent in front of the camera.

He said that the director of the movie, Shirley Frimpong-Manso, helped him find and set up the amazing moment.

“I was used to doing things my way back then,” he said.

“Before I got to that set, I was used to making suggestions about movements, how lines were said, and whether or not they should be changed.

“It was clear that the director knew what she was doing, and I knew that those were better than what I had suggested.”

Ekow saw that all the work he put into the movie paid off because many people liked how he did in it.
