Outspoken Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu has stated without mincing words that most of his colleague actors pretend to be rich in the eyes of the public.
The father of three in his recent interview on Angel TV disclosed that the dying movie industry is making most Ghanaian actors poor and hungry but they keep telling the world that they are moneyed. Speaking on Celebrity Ride With Zionfelix show, Bob Siga argued that moviemakers especially those seen on screens are not with deep pockets as the public think.
He maintained that no Ghanaian actor can be named among the rich men in the country so he cannot fathom most of them want to behave as billionaires. To him, names like Dr. Osei Kwame Despite, Nana Appiah Mensah, and many others hurriedly come to mind when asked to list rich men in the country but no actor’s name would be mentioned.
The ‘I’m Love you’ coiner continued that Ghanaian actors live ‘hand to mouth’ life in the country but always pretend to be earning millions from their job.
When Zionfelix, host of the program told him that most of his colleagues have opened pubs which feed others, he said: “we are talking about businesses and you are mentioning pub”. Kwaku Manu added that the rich men in the society pay not less than Gh1000 to their workers but pub owners give Gh150 as salary so actors who own bars in the country should not consider themselves well healed.
