Kojo Dadson laments deplorable treatment of veteran actors
In 2015, the ‘Hotel St. James’ actor told Joy News he sometimes weep for the uncertain future of veteran actors in the country.
The actor who suffered a mild stroke while on a movie set recounted what he went through during his sickness which convinced him that the welfare of matured actors is not on the priority list of the Ghana Actors Guild.
He said the Guild has no welfare plans for the elderly in the movie industry.
The actor revealed that although he is one of the pioneers of the Guild, he looks back on its founding principles with much regret.
“It certainly doesn’t make me happy. In my personal case, I am not frightened as such because I work for my father’s company.
“I have my social security so I feel for those who maybe do not have anything to depend on when they get old. The acting industry does not have anything for them to rely on” Kojo lamented.
