Movie director, producer, and entertainment critic, Ola Micheal is one of the principal actors in this whole drama between veteran actor Kofi Adjorlolo and movie producers not paying actors which has landed celebrity tailor cum actor Elikem Kumordzi in trouble.
The film director after Kofi Adjorlolo’s rant revealed in an interview with Joy News’ Doreen Avio that his producer for ‘Mad House’ is part of the seven people the veteran actor mentioned.
He also stated in that viral interview that they were not going to pay him because he didn’t finish with the worth they were he was contracted him to do.
Well, after all the back and forth which was witnessed on Peace FM’s entertainment review show hosted by Kwesi Aboagye on Saturday and all the backlash Elikem continues to receive on social media, Ola has decided to jump to his defense.
In a Facebook post sighted by zionfelix.net, Ola states that everything Elikem said is very true.
According to him, all the people who have been attacking Elikem mercilessly on social media have side jobs.
Ola listed being chicks and side guys, running boutiques and restaurants and a few others as things many of these actors do alongside even though they want to crucify Elikem for telling others to do the same.

“An actor advises his fellow actors to get side jobs, and suddenly he’s seen evil and disrespectful? Do this math; last year saw about just 20 films released. How many actors got to be in all or even one of these films? How many actors had no acting job at all for whole of last year?
How are those who had no acting jobs at all, coping?
Most of these ignorant hypocrites insulting the guy for suggesting that, actually have side jobs. Some have sugar daddies, sugar mummies, boutiques, restaurants etc and yet shamelessly descend on the guy for suggesting that?
Don’t be carried away by the tears and the charade of characterization. We know them and how they operate.
They will beg you to give them jobs or call them for a set and yet turn the public against you when they they get half pay for half jobs.
We will advise ourselves and invest in some other businesses and let these actor produce themselves.
So many actors have been in doors for several years with no acting jobs, how are they surviving. So many crew men are perishing in their houses with no jobs. They call you to just send small momo for various issues.
We will advise ourselves”
It should, however, be noted that Ola revealed on Peace FM during the entertainment show on Saturday that he pay Kofi Adjorlolo even though he revealed earlier that he won’t do so.
