Kumawood star, Kwaku Manu, says most movie stars are doing all kinds of low jobs in order to survive because the industry appears to be on the verge of collapsing.
According to him, some of them are hungry coupled with family pressures and will need to work towards the maintenance of their respective families.
In response as to why most actors in recent times are often seen on television and radio with Mallams and so-called spiritualists in an unprofessional manner, the movie star and producer revealed this on Kumasi- based Silver FM.
“Now we must admit that the movie industry is gradually losing its prominence in the country though some of us have refused to accept this fact. But I wish they would realize it and take it in good faith”. He said.
“To be candid, the industry has collapsed to the extent that, some movie stars you know find it difficult keeping up themselves and their families”.
He then adviced Ghanaians to cut down the rate at which they pass judgment on ‘prostitutes’ because it not easy living in hunger as some of his colleagues are experiencing.
According to him, most movies stars are now leaving outside Ghana not because they desire to be in their home country but the prevailing circumstances do not support them financially.
