‘I’m Broke, acting doesn’t pay’ – Akorfa Edjeani
Veteran actress Akorfa Edjeani-Esiedu has lamented she is financially challenged even though she has been acting for over 20 years.
“I need money. Honestly, I do, I’m broke. But really how much do they pay actors? People don’t know that,” she lamented on Starr Drive with Giovani and Berla Mundi.
The actress said she does not act often because she is selective with movies to stage in.
When quizzed about how actors and actresses who live luxury lives make it, she said: “they don’t get it from acting, I can tell you that for a fact”.
She noted however that Kumasi-based actors are paid better.
“So if they [Kumasi based actors] tell you that they making money from the acting, then yes”, she added.
The actress disclosed that she had a business she was running, but it was “hand to mouth”.
Akorfa Esiedu is set to premiere her new movie titled “Azali” at 7 pm and 9 pm at the Bank of Ghana Auditorium, University of Ghana campus today, Friday, October 26.
