Victoria Lebene, the Ghanaian actress who is yet to be seen in a movie says being an actress in Ghana is damn expensive since the Ghanaian movie industry isn’t booming as expected.
Victoria Lebene who allegedly ‘milked’ veteran actor, Kofi Adjorlolo and dumped him is of the view that Ghanaian actors/actresses should find themselves paying jobs to sustain their lavish lifestyle.
Lebene who is currently a broadcast journalist at GhOne TV said this in an interview with Showbiz.
“No I have not stopped acting, there is no way I will stay out of acting but we all know the issue, the country’s movie business is not doing too well, and keeping up is a bit expensive.
You see, as a celeb, you need to grace an occasion and as such have to look good—the dress, the shoes, the accessories etc, they all come at a cost. It is expensive to keep up that status so not getting anything from your workplace is not healthy.
I for one, I have invested so much into my brand and I have to keep it up but where is the income thus the need to look elsewhere to shore it up?
I sat down one day and thought about my interest in broadcast journalism and I said why not give it a try too, to get busy and earn something more. That is why I am currently at GHOne as a reporter. It is just another aspect of me that I am putting to use”, she said.
She advised her colleagues in the movie industry especially the females to look sharp and find a paying job to augment their lavish lifestyle.
