Actress Moesha Boduong has squarely blamed Kofi Adjorlolo and other veteran actors for the state of the movie industry, premised on the infamous outburst of Kofi Adjorlolo over unpaid renumeration from his acting services.
Moesha in her opinion, believes the pioneers set a bad precedence and erected a weak structure which allowed these producers to “use them by heart”, which to a large extent explains why producers don’t pay actors now.
“I would want to talk based on my experience in the industry, all the things coming out now is as a result of what those who came before us did. They were happy just being on the screens and did not see the need to be paid for their works.
“Today, they have realised the money is not coming so they are calling out producers. Because they did not see the need to take money for work done, producers also saw no need to pay and that has been the trend for so long.
“There were times movie producers were using cars of their cast in their movies so it became a requirement. If you did not have a car, you would not get roles and interestingly, these actors were enjoying the fact that they were being used. I believe they had no idea a day like this was going to come,” she told Graphic Showbiz in an interview.
