“3mere y3n di nkaso“, it literary means you can’t always be at the top no matter your talents or skills. But unfortunately, that is something most Ghanaian celebrities are refusing to grasp.
Most celebrities live expensive and wayward lifestyle when the money starts pouring in forgetting they have to invest to reap the returns even when they are no more the talk of the town and do not pull the crowd they used to.
This has lead to some celebrities who used to be millions of dollars rich end up begging for the basic necessities of life at old age.
Well, Ghapge.com has compiled a list of 6 major celebrities in Ghana who have seen hay days but are now poor. Some are not even old yet.
modern youth wouldn’t remember Kwame peace very well. In the late 1990s to early 2000s, he was a force to be reconned with in the movie industry of Ghana. But Because of his failure to adjust and evolve with developing trends in the industry, he faded out.
He, later on, became a taxi driver which he relied on to cater for his family. It became a sad news when news broke that arm robbers have stolen his cab. He now lives in abject poverty.
William Addo’s issue came as a surprise to movie fans like me. Although the veteran actor was not getting more features as he used to get in his golden days he still had few roles once in a while. So I got shocked when I found out the man is now totally broke.
He was on GTV and couple of other media houses to tell his tale of woes and to launch an appeal for GH¢10,000 to enable him to undergo glaucoma and cataract surgeries on both eyes. Former President John Dramani Mahama was one person who came to his aid by donating GH¢50,000.
