Movie producer, Ola Michael, has revealed he has paid veteran actor, Kofi Adjorlolo the money he owed him.
A few weeks ago, Mr Adjorlolo attacked movie producers in the country for owing him varying sums of money. According to him, about seven movie producers had not paid him for his work.
Ola Michael speaking on Hitz FM this morning insisted that, though to the best of his knowledge he does not owe the actor, he recently gave him an amount of GH¢6,000.
Ola Michael claims, he only gave Mr Adjorlolo the money because of the public outcry that followed his outburst.
“I still maintain that in principle I don’t owe the man,” he said.
According to the producer, he had contracted the veteran actor to work and had paid 50% of the fee he demanded and sat down together with other casts to plan a schedule.
But the actor refused to inform the team about his schedule during the planning.
Due to that, Kofi Adjorlolo was unable to honour his end of the agreement, when the team needed him most.
“At a hospital where we had to start (shooting) we were given three days to finish our shoot because patients had to be moved to another ward and after three days they had to be moved back. Now, you do half of the job and you leave….who does that?” Ola Michael questioned.
The film producer claims that, that the hospital which was the location for the shoot, refused to extend the days given to shoot at the facility, thus leaving them in a tight corner.
He added that due to this inconvenience the team had to beg another actor and change schedules to finish the project.
He also revealed that the new actor was paid twice the money they had left to pay Adjorlolo because of the late notice.
“People judge the thing because he is a star and an old person so he is right to do what he did,” Ola Michael concluded.
