Ghanaian fashionista cum actress Nana Akua Addo has added her voice to the recent actor-producer relationship over money issues brought up by veteran actor Kofi Adjolorlor.
Nana Akua Addo speaking with Graphic Showbiz disclosed that actors have now wise up, they don’t work on credit or for free.
“Now we have been awakened, we know better so we do not settle for just anything unlike when we started acting and accepted anything. In recent times, the new crop of actors has a price to their name because we have worked our way to get to where we are today.
“Today when producers are looking to cast, they want those who command respect and understand the game. We did not get here by chance, we worked our way up to get to this stage so we charge now, “ she told Graphic Showbiz recently.
Nana Akua continued: “I went to further my education in acting at the New York Film Academy because I want to be better at my job and take it a notch higher which is basically looking outside the shores of Ghana. So for someone like me, I am done with doing free things.
“I recall recently, a producer called me for a role and I told him my management will get back to him. After speaking with my management, that was it. He didn’t come back although he said he would and I knew it had to with my rates.
“The next thing I heard was that someone had gone for that role which is fine by me but if we do not let the producers know our worth, then we will be getting this kind of treatment all the time. That is where we have now gotten to.”
