Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has offered to assist veteran actor Psalm Adjeteyfio with some money following a viral video that saw the actor cry for help.
A post made by Krobea Kwabena Asante on Facebook revealed that the spokesperson of the Vice President, Dr Gideon Boako, paid a visit to the presenter who interviewed Mr Adjeteyfio to donate GH¢50,000 to the actor.
About GH¢30,000 of the money is expected to pay for the actor’s rent for five years, and ¢20,000 would be spent on his upkeep.
This comes after the Taxi Driver TV series actor, in a viral interview, appealed for ¢3,000 to enable him to pay his rent or risk being evicted.
TT, as he is popularly called, revealed that after years of his acting career, he had nothing to show for it and now survives on the benevolence of others.
He stated that he had spent GH¢6,000 on hospital bills and medication, adding that the assistance from family and friends had dwindled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
He disclosed he has become a charity case and will be evicted soon if help does not locate him.
Following his appeal, the Vice President had promised to help Mr Adjeteyfio.
Mr Asante, in his post, added a picture of the Vice President’s spokesperson and the interviewer.
“Despite mourning his mum who died in the early hours of today. Dr Bawumia this morning fulfilled a promise he made yesterday to TT of Taxi Driver fame that he will foot TT’s rent bills.”
“Dr Bawumia has paid 6 months renewable for the next 5 years (30k) for TT and has also given TT 20k for upkeep. In all, he gave TT 50k this morning,” the post read.
