NO ACTOR OR ACTRESS CAN SURVIVE WITH ONLY ACTING IN GHANA – Kwaku Sintim-Misa

Legendary Ghanaian entertainer and host of the KSM Show, Kwaku Sintim-Misa says no actor makes a fortune from acting in Ghana.

According to KSM, any actor or actress who claims to have made money from acting in the country is deceiving Ghanaians.

He argued that acting in Ghana doesn’t generate lots of money, hence disclosing the actors have a side job that they rely on to better their lives.

To him, to survive solely from acting is an impossible mission.

‘When I see people in Ghana who say I am a professional actor or actress, that’s all I do; I say in your dreams man. And survive in Ghana? That all you’re doing is to act, no; It’s not possible! No way and that’s the only income is from acting in Ghana, no way”

It could be recalled that veteran actor, Kofi Adjorlolo months ago accused some movie producers of owing him because they had failed to pay him for his acting roles in their movies.

Kofi Adjorlolo shed tears on Peace FM’s entertainment programme dubbed ”Entertainment Review” and threatened to take action against them if they refuse to give him his money.

Following Adjorlolo’s revelations, actor cum fashion designer Elikem Kumordzie argued that his colleagues are near broke because they don’t have a side job but depend solely on the income they make from their acting careers.

He believed the actors will not have many complaints about their financial progress if they would crave multiple streams of income by taking up additional occupations.

KSM, speaking in an interview with Nkonkonsa.com, sided with Elikem Kumordzie stressing the actors making a good living have a separate work to complement their acting career.

”I am saying they do other things to make their money and they use that money to support their acting career [you know]. But I don’t know of anyone who has, only on acting, to say I will be counted among the rich people in Ghana because all I do is act; no”, he said .

The veteran comedian added that the Ghanaian actors and actresses who have enriched themselves primarily derived their riches from penetrating the Nigerian market.

‘Most of the Ghanaian actors who made quite a good amount of money from acting, you’ll realize they were in Nigeria. They did lots of work with Nigeria or they had the Nigerian connection and that’s where most of them made good money and there, money can be made.”

‘But in Ghana, to say you’re purely living, born, bred and you’re acting in Ghana and that you have cash; oh please! Who’s paying you?” he questioned.

MINISTER OF STATE ADMITS FIRING GUN AT VOTERS’ REGISTRATION CENTRE

Member of Parliament for the Awutu Senya East Constituency Hawa Koomson has admitted to firing a gun at a voters’ registration centre in the constituency.

According to the Special Development Initiatives Minister, she took the firearm – which she refused to identify – to the registration centre to protect herself.

‘None of my men had guns on then when we got to the centre. I fired the shots myself,’ she said on Adom News.

Earlier Monday, officials of the Electoral Commission closed down the Step to Christ registration center in the Awutu Senya East constituency after gun-wielding men stormed the premises.

Eyewitnesses say, the men numbering at least 15 arrived at the centre around 8 am and tried to sack some prospective voters.

Parliamentary Candidate on the ticket of the NDC Naa Koryoo Okunor accused the sitting MP of perpetuating the act.

Although Miss Hawa Koomson admitted to the act, she denied allegations that the men she visited the center with were armed.

‘I’m a Member of Parliament, I need to protect myself. It was at dawn, my police escort had not started work yet. So that is a mechanism I have adopted in his absence,’ she said.

She further explained that she went to the location because she heard her opponent had bused people from other places to the registration centre.

Meanwhile, police say four persons have been arrested in connection with the incident.

THERE ARE TOO MANY CONTRADICTIONS IN THE BIBLE – KSM On Why He Has A Problem With The Bible

Host of KSM show, Kwaku Sintim-Misa says he has a serious problem with the bible of Christians.

Speaking with Nkonkonsa.com, Kwaku Sintim-Misa, affectionately called KSM stated that the bible is full of contradictions and believed those who wrote it decided to treat God like humans.

He wondered how the bible says one thing in a particular chapter and the same thing is refuted in another chapter.

An example by him is God being all-knowing and all-powerful but in the bible would put Abraham to a loyalty test. He asked how can the all-knowing God not have known that he (Abraham) wasn’t going to sacrifice his son for Him.

He also quoted a portion in the scripture that says God regretted making Saul a King and questioned how the almighty Deity would behave like a human being.

”I have a problem with the bible in terms of there are too many contradictions. Let me give you a quick example. The bible itself says God is all-knowing. Before tomorrow, God already knows what I, KSM, will do. So, if you say you have this all-knowing God, all-powerful God and then somewhere in the bible tells you that God had to go and test Abraham to see whether he was loyal, are you not contradicting yourself? God should have known that Abraham will not kill the boy. You’re God. You’re almighty; you know everything. But if you tell me God tested him (Abraham), I have a problem with it. These are some of the contradictions.

”Those who wrote the bible wrote it from the point of view that we’re humans and so let us attribute the same human qualities to God. So, God gets angry. In the bible, you’ll find God angry. He said I have regretted that I made Saul King. God is not human. God doesn’t have the attributes of a human being to be angry”, he stated.

A WOMAN SHOULD BE THE PRESIDENT OF GHANA – Veteran Actress Akorfa Edjeani

Veteran actress Ms Akofa Edjeani has said women would make better Presidents for Ghana if given the opportunity.

The 51-year-old actress believes a woman would be a good leader for Ghana should one be elected as president.

Ms Edjeani told Eddie Ray, host of Kasapa Entertainment on Kasapa 102.5Fm women are good managers and can handle the affairs of the country well.

Her comment comes following the recent appointment of Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang as the running mate of the National Democratic Congress [NDC], the first winnable political party.

The veteran actress reacted to the public perception that women cannot make it at the highest. She described such perception as unfortunate.

She indicated that although women are guaranteed political participation rights under the 1992 Ghana Constitution, there is a lack of female representation in government.

The President of Women in Film and Television [WIFT Ghana] said she is surprised at those saying Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang would not be able to deliver as the running mate of John Mahama.

According to her, women tackle issues better and can manage the affairs of the country far better.

“I’m surprised at those attacking Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang saying she isn’t the best choice to be appointed Mahama’s running mate.” She reacted

Ms Akofa Edjeani noted that women are good servants and are able to take difficult decisions.

“If it is about serving, women are chosen for that task so why run this great woman down. Most of the hard decisions are taken by women and not men. I don’t know why women are rejected when they get the opportunity to serve as government officials. Most women are managers of the house.”

She said, “Mahama appointing a woman as a running mate is just a preliminary. A woman should be the president of Ghana.

Advocates have been campaigning to get Parliament to pass the Affirmative Action Bill to compel political parties and agencies to recruit more women.

When asked what she can offer if any government in power gives her the opportunity to serve or give a bit of advice to help restructure the creative arts sector, Ms Edjeani said;

“I will advise the government to establish a separate Ministry for Creative Arts. Tourism sector gets more support than Creative Arts so it will be of importance if a new Ministry is set up for it. Successive Governments have bullied the Arts sector for so long. Formerly, Arts and Culture was added to the Information Ministry and Sports Ministry.

“I think successive governments didn’t know the importance of Arts and Culture that is why even now it has been added to Tourism. Arts sector should be a Ministry on its own so it can function effectively.

“If the foundation of your building is weak, the building will certainly collapse in no time. I’ll also advise the Government to resource the National Commission on Culture to make it more efficient and effective.” Akofa noted

Speaking on Counselor Lutterodt’s recent comment about rape victims enjoy the act, the veteran actress described such statement as unfortunate and uncalled for.

“Counselor Lutterodt’s license must be revoked if he is truly a registered. He is gone overboard so he must be sanctioned and taken off all media platforms.” She added.
