Ghanaian actor Ibrahim Idris, popularly known for his role in the hit series Junka Town as Too Much, revealed that he would not have left Ghana if he made money from acting.
During an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV AFRICA, Too Much revealed the numerous difficulties that actors encounter due to the struggling film industry in Ghana. He also mentioned that he relocated to the UK due to the unfavourable economic circumstances in Ghana.
“Who would leave their country to hustle in another country if they are comfortable? It’s not bad, but it is not as people seem. Most people live fake lives. The industry has collapsed.
You can’t survive now if you’re not internet savvy. I’m satisfied with where I am because I wouldn’t have been here if not for that show. It is far better than when I worked as a taxi driver,” he said.
Additionally, Too Much reported that although the entertainment industry has generated skilled performers and directors, it has not been as lucrative. The actor added that Junka Town was not financially rewarding, but it put him in the limelight.
“Junka Town was my breakthrough. We didn’t get anything from it, but I wouldn’t be here if it were not for that show. It brought me out of a dark place. I used to make GHS30 a day as a taxi driver, but I can pay fees and take care of kids,” he added.
