Months after he was slammed by some actors for advising them to find a ‘day job’ aside acting.
He told Selly Gally on Joy Prime that months after that incident, some of his colleagues, who had misunderstood him, come to him seeking advice on how to grow a side business after being affected by Covid-19.
He said that unlike most creatives, Covid-19 afforded him the opportunity to make money in spite of the challenges the pandemic has had on many businesses.
Elikem revealed that he must have sold and distributed up to maybe 50,000 pieces of face masks for many companies including GHACEM.
“In this Covid era, people are making money, while people are complaining. You either go with the people who are complaining…or find a way to make money during Covid,” he said.
Elikem came under attack for asking actors to get side jobs when veteran broadcaster Kofi Adjorlolo complained that he had not been paid by some movie producers.
