Award winning Ghanaian singer, Rebecca Acheampong, known on stage as Becca, in an interview with Doreen Avio on Hitz FM, has said that she will not accept movie roles for money.
“When it involves money and the role is good, then I will do it because in doing all these things I also look at the brand that I have.”
The songstress was answering a question on whether she is going to accept any movie role if it is connected with a huge sum of money.
The ‘Daa Ke Daa’ hit maker revealed that accepting movie roles is not all about money and that she has turned down several movie roles from some movie producers.
“If I’m going to pay attention to money, I would l have done about 20 to 30 movies by now,” she added.
Giving her reason for accepting a role in Yvonne Nelson’s movie ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’, Becca said “I’m not a movie star just get it right, I just did because the character was amazing, and it was different from all the other movies I have seen in Ghana and even in Nigeria.”
The movie, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’ is a real life touching story which was inspired by a little boy who was born with a cerebral problem and was unable to walk or speak.
Becca shared her experience on set for her debut movie role. “It was fantastic, there were places I had never been before, village settings where there was no light, very thick forest, you meet different people even the journey to the place was just simply amazing.”
“It gave me a whole idea of the way other people live, apart from the way we live, we have it very easy, so as much as I was shooting a movie, there were a lot of lessons learned as well. I have no regret at all playing this role,” she explained.
The movie, ‘If Tomorrow Never Comes’, will premiere on June 5 at the Silverbird Cinema.
