Pay Us Well If You Want Us To Stop Acting In Nigeria – Martha Ankomah To Ghanaian Movie Producers

Martha Ankomah has suggested that the brain drain the Ghana local movie industry is faced with, with many of our local talents ditching the local movie industry for that of Nigeria is because they are paid better in Nigerian

The actress in an interview on Okay FM with Abeiku Santana noted that movie directors always seek to cheat actors and actresses of money they have rightfully earned resulting in actors and actresses leaving the local movie industry for Nigeria’s

She noted that even when a movie does very well, resulting in directors making more money, they are still always reluctant to pay their employees what is due them Nigerian directors who understand business and the need to keep those you work with happy.

She said: “…Ghanaian film producers are stingy. They make a lot of profit and refuse to treat actors well.

“However, Nigerian film producers pay well because they believe they will make a profit from the movie. When they offer us roles, they pay us better, and it wasn’t bad. People work because of profit, and when there’s profit, it motivates you to work well,”
