Veteran Ghanaian actor, Mikki Osei Berko, has admitted how the Taxi Driver series helped him.
He stated in an interview with Blakk Rasta on 3FM—which Newshuntermag.com has come across that the series is one of the projects that made him who he is.
“What happened on the set of Taxi Driver for me was the experience aspect. I always look at the positive side of stuff. I could say Taxi Driver for me could say arguably is one of the projects that has made me who I am and you cannot count that in money,” he said.
Mikki Osei Berko, popularly known as Dada Boat, however, bemoaned that showbiz in Ghana does not pay.
“With regards to financial returns, I think that it was not to write home about and I am saying this clearly because the system hasn’t changed,” he added.
To him, the perception that some people have about showbiz is a factor which is contributing to the unlucrative entertainment industry.
“You know people consider showbiz as a part-time business, they don’t really understand that it is what put food on your table. They think that if they ask you to MC their event and offer you food and drinks that’s it. People do not regard this as an endeavour that pays so much and it was the difficulty at the time and I think sponsorship contributed to that.
“For me to say that Taxi Driver was something I’ve never regretted being part of because it added so much to my career. If you count that in money you can’t see anything,” Mikki further stated.
