Jackie Appiah schools Shatta Wale and other ‘money hungry’ celebrities to fight Coronavirus without thinking of gains.

Actress Jackie Appiah has been attacking celebrities who receive money before they do the public good of raising awareness about coronavirus.

Jackie, speaking on 3Fm with MzGee, said no celebrities would expect money to do this service that would help keep us all safe.

“We all need to educate each other…This is a global thing, it’s not just my industry alone. It’s quite sad…sometimes I use my platform to educate people,”

Jackie Appiah said.

“I’m doing this already for free right now nobody is paying me. I’m already doing it without being paid,”

Her remarks are in strong contrast to Shatta Wale, who said he wants money before taking part in any government-sanctioned awareness-raising programme.

“If government wants to engage me, Stonebwoy, Sarkodie or any other, they should know that there is something that needs to be done. It’s a tradition.

“We can’t come out and say we’re going to do it for free. I’m not part of their political party. It’s best for them to put a package down. Doing it for free will be very hard for someone like me.”

Shatta Wale said.

Jackie, however, slammed that kind of mentality in her interview.

“I don’t need to wait for government; nobody needs to wait for anybody to call them. I think it is right for an individual to preach to people to talk to people that’s why we have the numbers.

“God has given us the numbers to educate people…everyone needs to educate people because people don’t understand [what is going on]”.

Jackie Appiah said.
