Ghanaian actor Kofi Adjorlolo has at length presented the list of film producers who owe him huge amounts of money to FIPAG.
In yet another viral video, the actor has said, some seven movie producers owe him money for a work done.
Adjorlolo had in an interview expressed fury over some movie producers’ refusal to pay him after they engaged his services. Having quit his broadcasting career after 17 years to venture into acting, the least he expected was to be treated unfairly.
“Some of the producers in Ghana here, they should respect themselves…old man like me, they call me to come and work and they can’t pay me…,” a seeming frustrated Adjorlolo complained.
What made him angry is the was fact that he is said to be worth $800,000 when in actual fact, he has been starved for years. While stating that many Ghanaian movie producers do not pay actors for their roles in movies, the veteran intimated that a number of actors are still in the business because of the passion they have for it.
“About seven producers in this country owe me monies…why? And then I’m sitting at home, I’m hungry, and then when I’m sick too nobody pays attention,” he fumed. “Look we have elderly people lying down on their sickbeds and these producers owe them. Actors in Ghana here know what I’m talking about, these producers don’t pay!”
President of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) James Aboagye disclosed in an interview on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz that Mr. Adjorlolo has finally released two names of producers to his office whom he said, are not members of the association.
He, however, explained that his office is assisting the actor in any way they can to retrieve his money from the producers.
