According to her, there is no money in the industry and that has led to the reduction in the number of producers with actors and actresses taking up the role.

In her own words:

“The movie industry now does not have enough producers and finance. It’s all because there’s no money in the industry lately. The actors and actresses have now turned into producers, which shouldn’t be so.”

Yvonne Okoro also had a word of advice for aspiring actors in Ghana:

“There should be something aside acting you can perfect at. Acting does not fetch money in Ghana right now. Compared to Nigeria where they have over 20 cinemas and a larger population as well, a good movie can sell in all cinemas and make huge sums of money, it is not so in Ghana. I’d advise these up and coming actors to go to school, get a constant paying job and maybe do acting for the passion of it.”
