Veteran actress and one of the most conspicuous faces of Kumawood, Mercy Asiedu has granted a new interview and shed light on sex for roles that permeates the movie industry.
The actress who now bears the title Oheneyere after she got married to a chief, told Graphic Showbiz thus, “To be a star is not easy, it is not something you rush for, it is God’s favour that can take you there. It is not true that you have to sleep with someone to become a star.
“Throughout my career, no one slept with me, it is Miracle Films which discovered me from Concert Party. Often times, some of the young ones believe they have to sleep with producers and directors to become stars but there are some who slept with these producers and we didn’t see their stardom.
“If you ask for God’s favour and you are really interested and work hard, God’s favour will be upon you and you will become a star. With patience and humility, you will get there. The stars you see today did not become so overnight, it is many years of hard work and dedication so be patient, work hard and seek the face of God and at the appointed time, you will get there,” she advised.
Mercy Asiedu has been in the movie industry for over two decades, having started her acting prowess on the defunct Keysoap Concert Party before she transitioned into Kumawood.
