Multiple award-winning Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah, has opened up for the first time about how much her services cost in Nigeria in a new video on social media.
The actress, who was a guest on UTV and Nana Ama McBrown's hosted United Showbiz, indicated that acting in Nigeria back in the day was very good.
According to the Princess Tyra actress, the least she was paid to star in a Nigerian movie was $5000 or the equivalent of GHC25,000.
She however indicated that some movie producers went to the extent of paying even up to 5 times more that amount depending on a number of conditions.
Actress Nadia Buari who was also on the same show with a host of other top actors in the industry attested tp what Jackie Appiah was saying.
Jackie Appiah then went on to indicate that when they came back to Ghana after receiving such huge sums as payment for their services, they implored Ghanaian producers to also pay such amounts.
This demand, according to Jackie, was heeded to by some movie producers if the actor or actress is able to bargain well.
Jackie Appiah added that thus amount they were receiving in Nigeria was not even in recent times but when they were at their peaks, an indication that her services now would cost jaw-dropping amounts.
Jackie Appiah was on Nana Ama McBrown's show with Nadia Buari, Yvonne Nelson, Majid Michel and John Dumelo.
