Last week when the issues of who is the highest paid musician hit the showbiz industry, many movie fans were asking the media to investigate into whom is the most paid movie star in Ghana.
Our findings revealed by one of the countries popular film production managers who has produced over 70 movies and has worked with almost all the top movie stars both in Ghana and in Nigeria states that charges are not really stable and can change at any times.
But currently Majid Michel is topping the list with an amount ranging between 20,000 & 15,000 cedis, while Jackie Appiah comes second with 15,000 cedis John Dumelo prices 10,000 followed by Nadia Buari who takes not less than 8000 cedis.

Artus Frank also charges 6000 cedis now but producers in Ghana don’t pay him that, that is why you see him working more in Nigeria than in Ghana. Since in Nigeria they are ready to pay him that price.
As to why they all earn a double of the pay they earn in Ghana in Nigeria. He stated that because they have to take care of their personal responsibilities In Nigeria.
In a separate chat with some of the Kumasi film makers (Producers, Production Managers), they stated that Agya Koo is still leading except that his price has dropped from 10,000 cedis followed by Akrobotu-3000 cedis, Kyeiwa 2000 cedis, Lilwin 2000 cedis and Kwaku Manu’s price has also dropped a little bit, from 2000 cedis to 1500 cedis because for some-time now Lilwin is posing a stiff competitor.***
