Veteran actress Akofa Edjeani has descended on Ghanaian socialite Moesha Boduong for blaming the pioneer actors for setting a bad precedent for the film industry.
The celebrated actress described Boduong’s comment as immature and disrespectful to all veteran actors.
“After reading Moesha’s comment, blaming the pioneer actors for setting a bad precedent, I realized she was being childish. She didn’t know what she was saying.”
Edjeani told host of Kasapa Entertainment on Kasapa 102.5Fm, Eddie Ray, Moesha’s comment about pacesetters in the film industry is unfortunate and should not be given any attention.
The mother of two told Moesha Boduong to focus on her hooker (prostitution) profession and stop criticizing veteran actors for the woes of the film industry.
“She should rather stick to what she knows how to do best just as she said on CNN.” She told Moesha
The 51-year-old actress told Moesha Boduong to acknowledge the effort of seasoned actors for preparing the way for the current generation.
“She should rather appreciate the effort of these pacesetters for paving the way. If we didn’t pave the way can she [Moesha] call herself an actress?
Akofa Edjeani’s comment comes at the back of a childish statement made by Moesha that producers refusing to pay actors for their services is as a result of a bad foundation laid by the pioneer actors.
“I would want to talk based on my experience in the industry, all the things coming out now is as a result of what those who came before us did. They were happy just being on the screens and did not see the need to be paid for their works” Moesha said this in an interview with Graphic showbiz.
She continued that “Today, they have realised the money is not coming so they are calling out producers. Because they did not see the need to take money for work done, producers also saw no need to pay and that has been the trend for so long”.
