Ghanaian radio broadcaster, Kwami Sefa Kayi has finally disclosed why he quit acting to do only radio.
Sefa Kayi started off as an actor in the early 90s — starring in soap operas like ‘Ultimate Paradise’ — before making his radio debut on Radio Gold in 1996.
In an interview with Peace FM’s Kwasi Aboagye on the Entertainment Review show, the host of Kokrokoo Morning Show explained that he decided to stop acting because it doesn’t pay.
“I stopped acting was because radio gave me a better platform and made me more money and gave me more recognition. When I started the radio work, I saw improvement in my life. I could create a large network. I made good income. I saw a sense of direction in my life,” he said.
”Acting in this country, it doesn’t pay. It didn’t pay from when I was much younger. It is not paying today; it won’t pay tomorrow.”
According to Kwami Sefa Kayi, he “saw no future as an actor”, and decided to quit and focus on radio broadcasting.
