Popular Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo, has been praised for keeping his word and fulfilling his end of the deal after losing a bet.

It all began when the actor took to Twitter to declare that his alma mater, Achimota School, would defeat Presbyterian Boys Senior High School (PRESEC) in the 2023 National Science & Maths Quiz (NSMQ) competition.

He also pledged to walk barefoot backward from Ayawaso West Wuogon to PRESEC school in Ghana if they beat his alma mater.

Unfortunately, his bold declaration didn’t come to pass as Achimota School was defeated by PRESEC in the math competition on Monday, October 30.

Interestingly, the 39-year-old actor chose to honor his word by walking barefoot to his rival school to congratulate them.
