Actress Efia Odo says the system in Ghana is f*cked up and it’s too hard to make money in the country.
Odo, in a couple of posts on Twitter, said Ghanaian entertainers are generally broke and the youth in the country has no future.
Odo complained that a fast-food worker in the U.S makes more money than most Ghanaian celebrities and that majority of the celebrities in the country are famous for nothing whilst being broke.
“Somebody working in McDonalds in America makes more money than most of us celebs in Ghana. Ghana fame brings no money! All this fame and Artists are struggling. The people in position all need to be fired and new age minded people need to be hired. We need a reset button!” she said.
Odo added that the young people in the country even have it worse and there’s no way to make money without resorting to fraud.
“There’s no future for us, on God. How much do teachers, bankers, doctors make in Ghana?? It’s either you come from a good home or you’re doing fraud. Our structure in every aspect is horrible!” she added.
This state of affairs is what has forced many celebrities, especially the female ones, to open up a side business alongside their careers – selling their body for cash.
A fair number of them including Tracey Boakye and Moesha Boduong have openly admitted to this. Many of the others do it in secret but would deny it till their dying breath.
