Veteran actor, Kofi Adjorlolo who has been banned for 24 months by the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) says he may not act again if nothing is done about that decision.
The renowned actor and two other movie personalities, Yvonne Nelson and Ekow Smith Asante, have been banned by the film producing body for what the body terms are offences they had committed.
Kofi, speaking on Day Break Hitz on Hitz FM with Lexis Bill Friday said he can’t sit at home for two years without doing anything and if he had had a job, he wouldn’t have depended on acting, his passion for several years.
Kofi Adjorlolo had to give up a job in radio, advertising and marketing just to get into movies which he has been doing for several years now.
The very emotional and angry Kofi said, “I can’t sit at home for two years without working and if I get a job to do then I wouldn’t have time for movies … I get time for movies because I said movies are what I want to do. Now I can’t sit at home for two years without doing anything so it means I must find something to do.”
“Now, if I take myself out of it and get something to do and my passion goes, that’s it, it means then forget it, movies, that’s what they want to do and that’s what they want,” he emphasised.
The Favorite Actor winner at the maiden Ghana Movie Awards disclosed that he has not received any official document or notification from either FIPAG or the Film Regulatory Council concerning the widely held ban.
“As at now no one has contacted me to tell me I have been sidelined but I hear it all over the place that I have been banned from movies for the next two years,” he said.
He said he only got the information through a friend’s text message and other mediums.
