Actor cum celebrity tailor, Elikem Kumordzie has been the latest to join the conversation of actor remuneration by advising his colleagues to get a day job.

He counselled that, actors should focus on getting other streams of income rather than chasing producers for money.

His comments come at a time when a number of actors have made public claims of not being paid by movie producers.

Most recent of them was Kofi Adjorlolo who told JoyNews he is owed various sums by seven Ghanaian movie producers while he needed money urgently.

In the video, a visibly angry Kofi Adjorlolo complained bitterly about how he was in dire need of money while producers were keeping his money.

On the contrary, Elikem recounted how he picked himself up and moved on when he never received payments for the roles he played in some movies.

Mr Kumordzie expressed his opinion in an Instagram post captioned “Letter to my Fellow Actors. STOP complaining. leave the producers alone to find a day job. and see who they will shoot with”.

Meanwhile, he has been under heavy criticism and has suffered a severe backlash from a number of actors following his post.

Following Adjorlolo’s public outcry, he has been called by the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) to apologise or face possible sanctions.

Although Movie producer, Ola Michael has condemned the assertions of Kofi, actors such as Yvonne Nelson, Kisa Gbekle and Comedian DKB have supported the claims made by Adjorlolo.
