Answering a question on whether celebrities should be paid by the government to be ambassadors to educate the public on COVID-19, Jackie Appiah said money should not be the priority.

Speaking in an interview on Showbiz 927 on 3FM with MzGee, Jackie Appiah, who says the Coronavirus has stalled her work, including movie premieres, said everyone should come on board to help the fight.

“We all need to educate each other…This is a global thing, it’s not just my industry alone. It’s quite sad…sometimes I use my platform to educate people,” she said.

The award-winning actress stressed, “I don’t need to wait for government; nobody needs to wait for anybody to call them. I think it is right for an individual to preach to people to talk to people that’s why we have the numbers. God has given us the numbers to educate people…everyone needs to educate people because people don’t understand [what is going on]”.

She continued saying: “I’m doing this already for free right now nobody is paying me. I’m already doing it without being paid.”
