This veteran Ghanaian actor recently sent a message across to government, threatening to go naked to protest if the incumbent government does not take a step to salvage our dying movie industry, thus by banning foreign content on our television screens. However, in his most recent interview he, Mikki Osei Berko has made yet another interesting revelation, stating that acting in Ghana does not pay at all.
Disclosing this in an interview on Peace FM, the actor cum television broadcaster revealed he makes barely GHC 5,000 a year staring in movies. He again added that, the fact that the industry does not pay enough to make living out of it, explains why most of our actors depend on public support to cater for their needs. Moreover, that, most of them if not for ambassadorial deals and other endeavors would have been in so much financial constraints.
“I make less than 5,000 cedis a year from acting in movies and dramas. But for any ambassadorial deals and other businesses how would I have survived” Mikki disclosed in the interview.
