Veteran actor Kofi Adjorlolo has revealed that many movie producers in Ghana do not pay actors for their work.
According to him, many actors are still in the business because of the passion they have for it.
“All actors in Ghana know what I am talking about, producers don’t pay,” told the host of Joy Prime’s The Red Carpet Show, Ibrahim Ben-Bako.
He alleged that seven producers so far are owing him lots of money for works he has done for them.
According to him, up and coming actors have are the most frustrated people in the industry as they are at the receiving end of not being paid by producers.
Mr Adjorlolo explained that although he cannot attribute the fall of the movie industry solely to some of these issues, he tasked stakeholders to find a solution to the problem.
He told Ibrahim Ben-Bako that “however, these same producers are part of the stakeholders and they keep talking, meanwhile the ones acting they don’t pay them.”
Mr Adjorlolo who doubles as a journalist said reports that he is worth $800,000 are false, explaining that he left journalism because of his passion for acting but “still nothing is happening.”
