The Deputy minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture Hon. Mark Okraku Mantey addressed stakeholders in the entertainment industry on the need for entertainers to plan for their pension when they retire from active music and acting industry.

The interactive session which took place at the Alisa Hotel on Friday November, 4 2022 saw some veteran musicians and actors share concerns about their retirement and pension.

Hon. Okraku Mantey  intimated that this conversation about pension for entertainers in Ghana is a very important one and it is dear to the heart of the president of the republic, President Akufo Addo.

According to him, some veteran musicians who were very huge in the 70s and 80s but in their old ages, they were penniless and struggled to make ends meet because there were no pension plans in place for them.

He urged stakeholders to have a down to earth conversation with pension scheme providers such as bankers, insurance companies etc. to know the various pension, insurance and investment packages  they can offer so that entertainers can subscribe to, so they will not suffer the same fate as their predecessors.

Hon. Okraku Mantey entreated the banks and insurance companies to establish pension packages that are tailor-made for people in the creatives and also have the tolerance and patience to know about their concerns so they can customize their products to suit them well.
