This follows the realisation that many people in Ghana’s arts industry struggle to survive when they are old.

It mainly boils down to their failure to make hay while the sun shines with good investments that secure their future.

Today, Zea.NG brings you a list of Ghanaian celebrities who used to be fabulously rich but are now broke.

1. Kwame Peace

The veteran actor is said to be living in abject poverty after robbers stole his taxicab which served as a source of income for his family.

2. William Addo

Life is so tough for the veteran actor that he had to launch an appeal for GHC10,000 to enable him undergo glaucoma and cataract surgeries on both eyes. President John Mahama was one of those who came to his aid with a GHC5,000 donation.
