 Another tale of a veteran entertainer needing cash aid has reared its head, this time involving Abeiku Nyame popularly known as Jagga Pee.

“My brother Reagan Mends, things are not well for me at all. I have been very sick for almost a year now. Money to pay for my hospital bills has been very difficult since I don’t often get jobs like I used to.

 “I went unconscious and was admitted at the Holy Trinity Hospital then was later transferred to the 37 Military Hospital. I still owe the two hospitals GH¢2,500 for bills. I can’t pay the bills so am appealing to president Mahama to come to my aid by helping me with his ‘Celebrities for Mahama Project.’”

That was Jagga Pee’s plea when he spoke to ‘Celebrities for Mahama’ which has Mr. Beautiful as its coordinator is a project set up by president Mahama to offer financial and material support to aging and impoverished local entertainers and it is on this platform that Pee hopes to receive help.

Veterans who have gained support from the scheme include J.A Adofo, Koshwe, Paapa Yankson, Mr. Mensah, Ewurama Badu, William Addo and C.K. Mann.

Jagga Pee begun his acting career in 1984 and was a regular feature in the ‘TV Theatre’ series before getting charged alongside music star, Geeman in 1995 following a shooting incident at the CFC Flats, Dome resulting in the death of a taxi driver.

While Jagga Pee got a life sentence, his counterpart Geeman was sentenced to death but both gained reprieve when president Kufuor granted them amnesty. While Jagga has gotten a few roles since his return including ‘Chorkor Trotro’, Geeman relocated to the UK where he is a preacher.

Ablekuma-Agape based Jagga Pee needs all the help he could get given his female returnee partner has found it impossible to return to Europe after being sent down compounding the situation.
