In a film industry where structures are in shambles and procedures non-existent, ailing actors who have contributed half of their lifetime to the craft, are unable to even get royalties, what is called residuals.
In such situations, ailing and needy actors have to rely on well-wishers, friends and donors in order to survive – and that is the sad spectacle that is befalling veteran actor, Emmanuel Armah. www.entertainmentgh.com can state!
Afrika Vision International Charity (AVIC) and friends on Sunday, February 19, presented items worth thousands of Ghana cedis to ailing actor, Emmanuel Armah at his residence in Accra – kasapafmonline.com reports.

The group was led by actress Adjoa Pee. She was accompanied by other actresses like Rachael of ‘Bongo Bar’ series fame, Emmanuella and Eugenia of ‘Living with Tricia’ series.
