Ghanaian actor and Tourism Ambassador Bill Asamoah has advised colleagues to stay away from cheap hype and focus on their craft since it makes no sense to their careers.
Bill Asamoah in a recent interview with Showbiz revealed his relevance in the industry has been due to hard work and not cheap publicity.
“I love what I do and I do it for the passion, hence the reason I have been around for this long. Most of these young ones just want fame for their personal reasons but after the fame what else? I don’t need cheap publicity for anything,” he said.
According to Bill Asamoah, the unnecessary hype young actors were also pushing was a major reason why their careers didn’t seem to last.
“When I started acting, I did it with all the passion without even thinking about the money. With hard work, the money came automatically but that is not what we see now. Most of these young ones are doing anything for fame and when that happens, they fall off so quick,” he said.
Another thing Bill Asamoah said had helped him stay relevant for such a long time was that he was principled and disciplined. “I am disciplined when it comes to my job and every producer I have worked with can attest to that.
“I make sure I deliver what I am told to do and I execute it well. I always try my best to do what I know best and do it so well that producers don’t complain about it,” he stated.Follow @nydjlive
