Actor, Prince David Osei, has debunked suggestions that Ghanaians celebrities are not donating enough to the vulnerable in the lockdown areas as their counterparts in other countries are doing.

He indicated that though Ghanaian celebrities like himself do not have as much money as footballers like Christiano Ronaldo and Messi and other music and entertainment icons globally, they are, in diverse ways, helping to alleviate the plight of the needy people in society.

In an attempt to help flatten the infection curve and reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 infection, countries around the world, including Ghana, have implemented lockdowns of various forms.

In Ghana, government has implemented a 2-week partial lockdown where essential service providers are allowed to go about their duties. However, concerns have been raised about the impact of such measure on the welfare of the vulnerable.

Speaking to Oman FM on Wednesday, David Osei said he has been donating as much as GHC 500, 400 and 300 to some people who reach out to him for help to feed themselves.

According to him, it is unnecessary to show the details of these donations on his social media platforms since it would not be fair towards the people who asked him for help.

“I can open my phone to show you the number of people I have helped through mobile money. There are so many people who tell me they need money to go and buy foodstuff, I send mobile money to them. There is an orphanage in Dodowa, Potters Village Orphanage I send them money, most often, some of our followers ask what we are doing in these times but it is not everything we do that we can put out there. Somebody cannot send me their contact and name asking for mobile money and I will finish and post it on social media, it is not nice and fair.

“Most of the celebrities in the Western World like Christiano Ronaldo are richer than some of us, but if anyone calls me that they are hungry and I send about 500, 400 or 300 cedis, I can’t come and put that out there, it’s not necessary. However little we can help, we help. I don’t have the kind of money Ronaldo and Messi have so in my own small way, I am also helping the society,” he stated.
