Ghanaian actress Yvonne Okoro has thrown a word of advice to up and coming Ghanaian actresses and actors.
Okoro in an interview said “It is not a good idea to rely solely on acting for your livelihood or else you will die poor taking into considerations the current state of the Ghana Movie industry.”
She added “ The movie industry does not have enough funding and producers. It is all because there is no money in the industry lately. The actors and actress have now turned into producers which shouldn’t be so.”
“There should be something aside acting that you can be perfect at. Acting does not fetch money in Ghana right now. Compared to Nigeria where they have over 20 cinemas and a larger population as well, a good movie can sell in all cinemas and make huge sums of money. This is not so in Ghana,” she disclosed.
The ‘Ghana Must Go’ actress then cleared the air saying she did not make her money from acting as its being speculated.
Okoro stated that it is her other businesses that bring her money.
