Canadian born Ghanaian actress, Jackie Appiah is of the opinion that celebrities should not wait for the government to pay them before they can advocate for coronavirus. According to the 36 year old, celebrities have to use their star power to help educate their fans and the public on the global pandemic which has claimed thousands of lives without receiving a penny.
She made this known in a radio interview she had recently with 3FM’s MzGee .
In her words “We all need to educate each other…This is a global thing, it’s not just my industry alone. It’s quite sad…sometimes I use my platform to educate people. I don’t need to wait for government; nobody needs to wait for anybody to call them. I think it is right for an individual to preach to people to talk to people that’s why we have the numbers. God has given us the numbers to educate people…everyone needs to educate people because people don’t understand what is going on”.
“I’m doing this already for free right now nobody is paying me. I’m already doing it without being paid.” She added.
