We often get to know how much our celebrities in sports make but it is a different ball game when it comes to those in the arts. Just like their counterparts in the music industry, our movie stars will talk about everything but how much they take home.

Last week, ‘Showbiz’ published how much our musicians charge and it is just appropriate to let our readers have a peep into what our celebrities on the silver screens rake in. As usual, they wouldn’t talk so we once again went behind them and spoke with film producers to ascertain how much our movie stars get paid. Just like the musicians, the ‘salaries’ of the movie stars are not fixed. Charges vary depending on a number of factors.

Talking to producers, it was revealed that charges can be influenced by issues like relationship a producer has with an actor, size of budget, extent of the actors’ role and general demands of the story.

There are some actors, however, who are branded ‘certified stars’ and will not budge on their fees regardless of their relationship with a producer or whether they are playing a lead role or not. Our information is that Majid Michel and Jackie Appiah are the highest paid actors in Ghana, pulling in about GH10,000 each per movie. Who else brings in the bucks? Agya Koo with GH8,000.

Yvonne Okoro, Nadia Buari and Yvonne Nelson, who are tied at third place, are said to each earn GH7,000 for every movie. Following are John Dumelo and Van Vicker who rake in about GH6,000. Kofi Adjorlolo falls in the GH5,000 bracket while Kalsoum Sinare and Prince David Osei make 4,000 respectively. The margins grow from there with Rose Mensah aka kyeiwaa and Nana Ama McBrown making the GH3,000 region while Kwaku Manu, DJ Liwin and Emelia Brobbey bag about GH2,000 per movie.
