Ghanaian gospel musician, Brother Sammy, has shared his experience with the amount of monies paid to certain characters who are novices in the movie industry.

It could be recalled that Brother Sammy once ventured into the movie industry and starred in a couple of movies and skits but had his dream cut short because of what he referred to as unfair treatment to novice actors.

According to him, the poor remuneration for beginning actors in the movie industry hampered his interest in pursuing an acting career.

Brother Sammy on UTV’s United Showbiz made it known that Dr. Likee, who is officially called Ebenezer Akwasi Antwi, and Papa Kumasi, paid him ₵40 each for roles he played in their movie projects.

Brother Sammy, according to him wondered if he was treated that way by the movie producers because he is a gospel artiste.

This is what he had to say;

“I have been on about 4 movie sets, Dr Likee led me to one. After the production, I was paid ₵40 cedis. Likee is my friend and also a family relative, so because of the close-knit nature of our relations in Kumasi, I took it lightly. It has not even been 5 months since this happened.

“Not long after, Papa Kumasi too called me to be part of a movie called Chop Box to Chop Box. I played the role of a student. While I was about to drive away in my car after we closed from the set, he gave me an envelope containing ₵40.

“Sometime after that, Tracy Boakye also called me to play a role in a movie she was producing outside of the country. I accepted because when I launch my songs, they come to support me. She even booked a flight for me. However, after the shoot, I was even expecting to get ₵40 cedis, but I got nothing as she took me to the airport and drove off.

“In the same vein, the late actor, Bishop Bernard Nyarko, took me to a village for a shoot. As for him, he increased it to ₵50.

“So, when I went home, I wondered if they have prospered through acting or is it that they do not regard me that much. So, I started calling the actors and actresses I know to find out if that is how they are paid or is it because I’m a gospel artiste.”
