Ghanaian actress and TV host, Selly Galley has rubbished KSM’s claim that actors need a side job to better their lives because they cannot entirely depend on acting.
Recall that popular Satirist KSM in a recent interview with Nkonkonsa asserted that actors who claim to have made money from only acting are deceiving Ghanaians because acting in the country is not lucrative.
kSM during the interview advised that actors to get a side job that can support them and also help them gain more income.
Reacting to KSM’s aforesaid comment, actress Selly Gally in an Instagram post disagreed with the veteran comedian as she claimed that actors don’t necessarily need side jobs.

Selly Gally stated that actors getting a side job is a plus but actors can make it without side jobs as the profession’s brand is enough to attract endorsement deals which can better their lives.
According to her, there are several actors who are making a living with endorsement deals and are doing well for themselves.
Selly Galley also advised colleague actors to build solid brands to attract such opportunities.
Selly Gally wrote on Instagram:
“Actors don’t necessarily have to have a side job. Yes, it’s an absolute plus when they do but where is the capital coming from? The platform and brand an actor has is enough to attract endorsements which companies are now paying very well for, appearances, collaborations and more.”
“There are many top actors in Ghana who are living just off these and are doing well. Their passion is paying off without any side jobs. Really well. Even if the monies paid from movies, endorsements and so on are not that much, little drops of water indeed makes a mighty ocean.”
“But I can assure you companies are paying artistes very well in these times. Build a solid brand and you’re good to go!”
However, after a fan suggested that endorsements are side jobs,Selly Gally explained :
“Note that you’re endorsing brands as an actor not as an entrepreneur. They’d have gone for bankers etc. endorsements come with the job of an entertainer because of accumulated fan base. Brand Endorsement it’s not a side job!”
“Film industries in Ghana and across Africa do not pay much due to lack of distribution /marketing platforms and cinemas and many more challenges we acknowledge that, else getting well paid for acting and getting endorsements is very much part of being an entertainer. In fact these two are the only certain avenues of making money as an entertainer. Every other thing is a side job.”
Is Selly Gally making sense?
