The Creative Industry Does Not Pay – Lydia Forson Says In Response To Adwoa Smart’s Cry Out For Help

Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has added her voice to the challenges faced by movie actors and musicians in the Ghanaian creative industry over poor remuneration following Adwoa Smart’s cry out for help

It is now becoming a growing trend to see and hear actors and musician who have worked in the creative industry for decades come out to cry for help in their old age to seek help in paying rent, paying for hospital bills and what have you

Psalm Adjetefio popularly known as TT in the popular taxi driver series is one actor who came out begging for help to pay his rent as it was due and luckily for him he got more than what he was asking for as Ghanaians came to his aid beyond his expectation

And just yesterday we reported of Adwoa Smart going live on radio to seek the benevolence of others in making her dream of owning a home a reality

And Lydia Forson who is still very much young and relevant in the industry finds it disturbing and heartbreaking to see such legends in the industry reduced to ordinary beggars

“Artistes give so much of themselves to the world and don’t often get enough back. Through their art they comfort us, make us laugh, take us through heartbreak and difficult times; they share so much of themselves with us…And they don’t stop because it is who they are , what they are called to do and what gives them fulfilment, even to their own detriment. It is so heartbreaking sometimes and not many will understand this,” the actress wrote on her instagram
