Yvonne Okoro has given advice to fellow actors that acting should not be considered as a full-time job because of the steady decline in the movie industry.
She informed Abeiku Santana while talking on the Atuu’s Show that aired on UTV about the serious challenges the industry is currently facing.
“The movie industry now does not have enough producers and finance. It’s all because there’s no money in the industry lately. The actors and actresses have now turned into producers, which shouldn’t be so.”
“There should be something aside acting you can perfect at. Acting does not fetch money in Ghana right now. Compared to Nigeria where they have over 20 cinemas and a larger population as well, a good movie can sell in all cinemas and make huge sums of money, it is not so in Ghana. I’d advise these up and coming actors to go to school, get a constant paying job and maybe do acting for the passion of it.” She told Atuu TV.
The 33-year-old actress further revealed that she is a real estate developer, a job which she learned from her father and asides that, she is currently studying as a law student at MountCrest University College.
