Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...
Veteran Ghanaian actress, Grace Omaboe popularly known as
Maame Dokono has called on celebrities in the country to save for the future.

Maame Dokono speaking in an interview with DJ Sly on Ark
Fm’s Weekend City Show postulated the need for them to save or invest for the
future, now that they are earning something.
When asked whether creative art should be a full time job or
part time, she answered: “Creative art should be a full time job. It is
supposed to be a full time job in order to give you a livelihood.”
On what hinders the development of the industry, the ‘Obra’
star stated: We do not receive much encouragement and piracy too is another
challenge. We cannot compare ourselves to the foreigners due to piracy and
monetary problems. We cannot liken ourselves to the Nigerians, the marketing
and everything there is perfect.”
Maame Dokono said the veterans sacrificed a lot to pave way
for the new crop of actors/actress to enjoy.
She said there is the need for Ghanaian movie stars to
attach another job to what they do as actors or celebs because the environment
will not allow them meet their future needs. According to her it is only
peculiar to Ghana.
Maame Dokono believes the passage of the film bill into law
will bring many changes into the industry.
She also appealed to the Creative Arts Ministry to put more
measures in place to safeguard the future of Ghanaian celebrities.
