Ghanaian actor Psalm Adjeteyfio has revealed the amount of money he received from his role in the Pension tv advert for aponkyeniti.
According to the actor, he was paid 500 Ghana Cedis for his role for the advertisement.
Psalm Adjeteyfio went on to let the public know that being popular doesn’t mean you have huge sum of money so one can have fame but be broke.
TT as most people know him was in the news after a video of him begging Ghanaians to help him raise money to pay him rent surfaced online.
Through this video many have questioned him and asked him where all his money went and even called him names.
During an interview with Step 1 TV, this is what Psalm Adjeteyfio has to say;
“I contacted Louis and asked, ‘Don’t you have something happening,’ because I’m broke as a Churchmouse.’ He informed me that there was a position available, but that the pay was insufficient. I pushed myself to do it because I was broke and had no other options. As a result, the man stated that he would call his manager and get back to me.
He called to say that we could film the commercial, but that his supervisor needed to speak with me first. When the boss phoned, he stated the budget for the advertisement was GHC 300, but because it was for me, he’d want to add something little.
He didn’t say how much he wanted to add. I met with the man I filmed the advertisement with during the day of the shoot; there was no script, and we were only given information on what was expected of us. So I invented the phrase “aponkyeniti, Otwiniti ni ti,” and lo and behold, that’s what sold the ad.”
