Veteran Ghanaian actor, Mikky Osei Berko has revealed to the public that despite being in the Ghanaian movie industry for the past 26 years, there are times when he can’t afford something as simple as fuel.
Master Richard as he is popularly known, disclosed this speaking on an interview with Nkonkonsa.
According to him, most actors and actresses in the Ghanaian movie industry are flat out broke.
He sighted himself as an example when he was queried if he has any proof of what he’s saying.
He added saying, after 26 good years in the movie industry he should be rich or at least lack for nothing.
But unfortunately there are tough days he cannot afford to buy fuel for his car.
He said, “Most of the Ghanaian celebrities are paupers. I’ve served in an industry for 26 good years…. There shouldn’t be a point where I don’t have money to fuel my car but it does happen”
He said that, majority of actors cannot afford good health care, adding that those of them who flaunt crazy wealth can never explain where they get their money from.
