Celebrated Ghanaian actress and producer, Akofa Edjeani has candidly shared the financial challenges she has encountered in her journey as a filmmaker.

Despite her artistic contributions and accolades within the Ghanaian movie industry, Edjeani reveals that she has not fared well financially, shedding light on the economic realities faced by many filmmakers.

Speaking in an interview with Kwame dadzie on Joy Fm A-Z Showbiz, the screen goddess detailed that with no systems in place for the movie industry at the time she went into acting, she and her colleague were working to lay a foundation for a stronger industry in the future.

“We really didn’t have one. So we were doing things, sacrificing a lot to make sure that others could come and enjoy it.

“So all the new people enjoying now, they’re enjoying on the back of a sweat [put in by others]. So we laid the foundation for what is happening now…Financially, I haven’t done too well with that,”

However, Despite the lack of financial rewards, the veteran actress told Kwame Dadzie that finds satisfaction in her work – knowing her work not only entertains but inspires others has been a pleasure for her. She further averred that more work has to be done, especially in terms of pay among others “it could be a whole lot better.” 

“I take my craft seriously, so the effort that I put in and the feedback that I get, the people that are happy watching us, watching me in particular, to know that you gave somebody hope, you inspired somebody.

“Because of you, somebody changed their ways for the better, because of you, somebody got into some business, so in that sense, I’m very successful and I’m happy about it,” she added.
