Your Lifestyle Today Affects Your Future – Nii Saka Brown to Celebrities
The recent plea for help from veteran actor Psaume Adjeteyfio has once again raised the question of the plight of our creative artists as they age.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Psalm Adjeteyfio has asked for help, and he’s certainly not the first to go public with his struggles as countless examples abound.
After witnessing too many of these stories, actor Nii Saka Brown warns celebrities against the expensive lifestyle they lead today and think about the future.
According to Nii Saka Brown, most celebrities lived beyond their means while others lived fake lifestyles just to please their fans.
“Who are you fooling? If you don’t have what it takes to live lavishly, why do you worry about borrowing to impress? I know celebrities who have had Uber drivers and tailors for months. They tell the drivers that they will pay them at the end of the month and when the time comes, some change their numbers. I hear these stories all the time, ”he said.

Nii Saka Brown, who drew backlash for comments he made on the Adjeteyfio Psalm as the cause of his unfortunate circumstance, said many celebrities did not plan their lives well in their prime and were still deemed to be faulty in the future.
“Lack of planning is the reason most of these celebrities are broke when they retire. When you get paid, common sense should tell you that you need to save some of your income for the future.
Some of these celebrities spend all the money they get thinking they’ll get it back, ”he said.
The actor, who said he grows sad whenever his fellow actors have to apply for funds in their old age, said it’s time they invested and bought insurance policies to secure their future.

“Our work is such that when you are irrelevant, you get no contracts and no money comes in. So in this situation, if you haven’t planned well, you will be in trouble. Other celebrities have planned their lives well and today they are having fun with their families, ”he said.
For Nii Saka Brown, celebrities shouldn’t be pressured by their fans who expected them to live a certain lifestyle.
“When we are seen on screens and on stage, fans expect us to live big but it’s up to us to be honest with ourselves, to live small and to save for the future. Due to good planning, I own two houses with another on the way and I want to take this opportunity to implore the celebrities to think ahead and plan well, ”he said.
