Female celebs benefit more in entertainment industry – Ekow Smith Asante


Popular Ghanaian actor, Ekow Smith Asante, says female celebs who are famous through acting enjoy the most in Ghana’s film industry.

The actor was “quoted” in an interview with JoyNewsMzGee that
flamboyant female celebrities in Ghana who usually travel to places in the name of taking vacations, are sponsored by big men in the country.

But clarifying these claims on Asempa FM‘s weekend entertainment show,
Tête-à-Tête, Mr Smith said he only meant to say some of the female celebs have the advantage to explore with men when they travel outside.

According to him, prostitution is too big a word to use for our female actress like some online portals reported him to have said.

“I can go to the parliament house and it will shock the number of judges politicians and big men that will shake hands with me and I am there thinking that these big men do not watch movies. It’s amazing how they will mention a movie they’ve watched of me, so if I get this kind of reception how much more our women?” he quizzed.

“What I remember saying on Mz Gee’s show was that yes it opens doors for them; they get trips abroad and they take advantage of it,” he stated

“I have been stalked on several occasions for numbers of actresses, and when you don’t give it out, people feel you are too hard on them. What they don’t know is, the people they see on screens are not the same people in real life,” he explained.
