At a time when it has become some sort of fashion for our celebrities to align themselves with political parties, popular Kumawood actor Akwasi Boadi, also known as ‘Akrobeto’, says he will not take that route because politics won’t put food on his table.
According to the 58-year-old actor, he believes in working for his money rather than getting involved in politics which will not put any money in his pocket.

“I believe in working hard for my money than to follow politics. How much can politics pay me? Politics cannot take care of me for the rest of my life but my hard work will. I am living my life and I am proud I am making it,” he said.

Akrobeto stated that neither NPP nor NDC could solve his problems and he believed in doing things for oneself instead of relying on others.

He added that although he did not fault any celebrity who was involved in politics, he believed in working hard for his money than to dabble in politics.

Away from politics, Akrobeto, who has starred in countless movies such as Onipa AwieyeDon’t Break My HeartThe Tyrant KingEnemy WithinEfie Bia Amanea Wom among others, said he would not prevent any of his children from joining the movie industry.

“Unfortunately, none of my children has expressed interest in acting but if they do, I will gladly allow them because I have made money from it,” he said.

He also shared his thoughts on prophecies that had come this year indicating that a number of celebrities would die. He disclosed that he had received his fair share over the years but was not worried because he served a living God.

“When you live a righteous life, you don’t really care what happens to you. I am not scared of death because I know I live a righteous life, everyone will die one day and after death we will all be judged,” he said.

For sometime now, Akrobeto has been cracking ribs with his Real News programme on UTV. The way he pronounces the English words and the comical slant he puts on the news has made the programme very popular.

He disclosed that he did not intentionally mispronounce the words but said them as best as he could.

“Everyone knows my level of education is very low and I don’t really mind. So far as I am making money and entertaining Ghanaians, I am okay. The positive feedback I get after reading the news is amazing and I am glad Ghanaians love it,” he said.

On his hobbies and what music he loves, Akrobeto said he loves Gospel songs. “I love listening to gospel songs especially from the likes of Ohemaa Mercy, Patience Nyarko and Obaapa Christy. I think I am biased towards Gospel music because I was the leader of Kristo Asafo band for a long time,” he said.
