Veteran actor, Kofi Adjorlolo has dispelled assertions that Nigerian filmmakers employ the services of Ghanaian actors because they are much cheaper than Nigerians.

According to the actor who spoke to Hitz FM’s MZGee, Ghanaian actors help boost sales in Nigeria, a reason for which they get movie roles there.

Kofi Adjorlolo who has acted for years in both Nigeria and Ghana stated that he was treated as a professional anytime he went to Nigeria, stressing that Ghanaian actors are not cheaper.

“It is a lie, I go to Nigeria to work and they see me as a professional of a certain standard so what I need to take is what I take. If a super star in Nigeria sleeps in a 5-star hotel, I will be given a 5-star hotel to sleep in. That is the standard, people shouldn't think otherwise. I was presented the Nollywood legend award; it was not because they were paying me less. It's because I worked hard. Using Ghanaian art helps them boost their sales,” the Ghanaian actor said.

Kofi Adjorlolo also debunked suggestions that the success of the Ghana movie industry is dependent on that of Nigeria.

“In the first place, we never ever depended on Nigerians for sales or marketing. It was rather the Nigerians who were depending on us for sales and marketing because at the point Ghanaians were not actually buying Ghanaian films, we were more interested in the Nigerian films so we were rather doing more sales for Nigerians not vice versa but fortunately it came to a point, we Ghanaians also started doing good films. Some Ghanaian producers decided to do collaborations with Nigerian artistes, directors and as they mingled with us, our folks began learning better ways of movie productions. Basically, we reaped from each other” he noted.
