Photography, one key aspect of branding which cannot be undermined by any top entertainer is sadly not bringing any substantial financial benefit to the men and women who are always behind the cameras.
This sad story is what top photographer in the country, Rob Photography, shared when he was interviewed earlier in the day while he was guest on Accra FM’s weekend entertainment show hosted by Nana Romeo.
According to Rob, who has worked with big names like Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, Stonebwoy, Kuami Eugene and others in Ghana and beyond, even though he constantly provide great pictures for celebrities to share for their many followers on social media, he gets almost nothing for most of the services he renders.
He added that there have been occasions when he was given GHC50 cedis as a settlement after he has traveled long kilometers with some entertainers to take pictures of them. Rob questioned what a fully grown man like him will do with this amount of money, when even the credits he buys for his phone in a day may be more than that amount.
Asked by Nana Romeo if he has the belief that it will get any better someday, Rob noted that it will. He further disclosed that currently, he has been doing a lot of work for Bhim Nation boss, Stonebwoy and his team and already he has started seeing some changes.
