Veteran actor William Addo begs Ghanaians for ‘nika-nika’ to start corn mill business in order to survive



    Days after the plight of actor Psalm Adjeteyfio dominated social and mainstream media, another veteran actor William Addo has surfaced to toe the same tangent by begging Ghanaians for financial aid.

    The actor who made a name for himself in the Thursday Theatre TV series and other local productions in the 1990s and 2000s revealed on Citi TV’s ‘Untold Stories of Veteran Actors’ program he needs a machine to start a corn mill business.

    The actor who is famously known as Akpatse has therefore appealed to the public to support him to start a corn mill business (known locally as nika-nika), which according to him, will provide a sustainable source of income to fund his medical bills.


    Meanwhile, Nii Saka Brown is not enthused with the fact that his veteran colleague Psalm Adjteyfio is courting public sympathy for financial aid to alleviate his new level of penury.

    Speaking in an interview TV XYZ, Nii did not mince words by going for the head of Mr. Adjeteyfio as he brands him a failure for renting a house at his age and asking for help to maneuver his way through life.

    Recall that hours after the former Taxi Driver leading character revealed his situation in a TV interview which went viral on the internet, the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia stepped in and gifted the actor an amount of ¢30,000 to cover his rent issues and also ¢20,000 for ‘pocket money.’

    Henry Quartey, the Greater Accra Regional Minister also pledged to provide a monthly stipend of ₵1,500 when the trending issue was brought to his attention. Furthermore, socialite Ayisha Modi also came through by pledging to pay for his rent for life plus other monetary assistance.
