Veteran actor Akrobeto expressed his astonishment during an interview when confronted with claims that it was impossible for a Ghanaian actor to build a mansion.
The discussion arose in the context of fellow actor Agya Koo's recently constructed mega-mansion, with sceptics suggesting that the funds came from political connections rather than his acting career.
Akrobeto revealed that during the height of the Kumawood era, they had the opportunity to shoot multiple movies within a short period. This resulted in substantial financial gains, which enabled them to amass considerable wealth. He emphasised that their hard work and dedication to their craft allowed them to earn a decent income.
The actor seemed genuinely surprised by the notion that Ghanaian actors were incapable of acquiring such luxurious properties through their profession alone. He strongly disagreed with the sceptics and dismissed their claims, stating that it was entirely plausible for actors to build mansions based on their earnings from the entertainment industry.
