Controversial Kumawood Actor Dada Santo has unleashed his anger on the leaders of the movie industry, describing them as lacking knowledge.
According to the actor, the leaders in the movie industry are the cause of the poor living conditions of a lot of the industry players. It’s no news that most aged actors and actresses have been seen in a poor state and have been seen in deplorable states.
One of the industry players who recently came out to seek financial aid is veteran actor Psalm Adjeteyfio, also known as T.T of Taxi Driver fame. He came out on social media to beg for financial assistance from the public and asked for an amount of Ghc3000 to enable him to pay his rent advance indicating that he was now surviving on charity on the benevolence of friends.
In an interview on a Kumasi-based FM station, Angel Fm Entertainment show hosted by Ike De Unpredictable, actor Oboy Siki as he is popularly known emphasized that Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) and Actors Guild leaders have failed to implement policies and programmes which will cater for the welfare of their members because they are refusing to think outside the box.
“As an actor, I must confess that our major problem is our leaders who have failed to work beyond expectations. We don’t have leaders who think about the welfare of the actors and the actresses” Dada Santo said.
“Majority of our leaders are illiterates and others lack the knowledge to implement policies which will support the welfare of their members,” he added.
Dada Santo expressed worry about how veteran actors are struggling to survive after working for so many years for the country.
