Psalm Adjeteyfio, popularly known as TT for his role in the Taxi Driver series has explained how he used some GHS50,000 donation given to him by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Speaking on Takoradi based Empire FM he said he used the GH¢30,000 meant for his rent to purchase two plots of land of which he was able to pay for one at the said price and the remaining GH¢20,000 meant for his upkeep, to purchase a “Ghana used taxi in a good condition” for his 31-year-old son.
“I sat down quietly and taking note of the situation, that the whole world has got their eyes and tongue on the money, so I should be very careful how I use that money. So what did I do, land has become very very expensive now, where we are, and I hear other places, right now, a plot of land is costing 30,000 cedis; so I got two plots of land which I paid for one with cash straight away, I’m yet to pay for the other one.
“My son says he wants to be a driver, he’s been to driving school but for two years he’s been at home, and he was becoming frustrated. So, I told him something will happen. I will buy him a car, meanwhile, I didn’t know where the money is coming from, so when the Vice President gave me the money, after putting that 30,000 cedis in that plot of land the remaining 20,000 cedis I said this is the time for me to do something for my son, so I bought a Ghana-used taxi in a very good condition for him. He has right now registered at a station here [where we are] and he plies that road,” TT explained further.
TT days ago came back to the limelight after allegedly begging for leftover food from Mzgee, a media personality.
According to him, since the Vice President’s donation, well wishers have stopped giving him money or any form of help.
He said the Greater Accra Regional minister’s pledge to put him on GHS1,500 payroll has not been coming and he has been left broke again.
