His story shook many who watched the ‘Delay’ interview. That where to lay his head was even a challenge for him not to talk about affording to eat healthy to maintain a healthy weight especially when he’s suffering from multiple diseases or conditions.
According to Psalm Adjetefio; he emerged as a public figure first in the ‘Ultimate Paradise’ series although he was a trained teacher at the PRESEC staff school tutoring pupils, the Ga language.
But it will take the ‘Taxi Driver’ series to make him famous. He recounts his pay was GHS10.00 per episode. Even then as a resident of Madina, Mr. Adjetefio tells Delay he was in a rented premises- a chamber and hall with his wife and children.
Eventually he relocated to Oyibi Estates to settle in a 3-bedroom house, also rented. So was Psalm Adjetefio a reckless fellow who squandered money such that he is in his current predicament?
The bulky fellow begs to differ; rather pointing out that Peugeot 604 saloon car he purchased for his personal mobility proved to be the source of his woes.
A second hand ride which he toiled to pay for, Psalm regrets the car did not last as a friend crushed it. As an actor, he narrates his income collapsed when the ‘Taxi Driver’ series rounded up after three years.
A Peace FM gig got shelved and film roles were not pouring in all making life difficult but according to the man also called T.T, it was at this juncture that his wife listened to the counsel of friends and started misbehaving and not heeding his admonishing even deserting him so when a damsel appeared that she wanted him to coach her in acting as she desired to be a professional actress, an affair ensued leading to him relocating from Accra to Cape Coast to stay with her.
But he with tears narrates that following that damsel was one of his misguided steps in life as she proved to be a terror for his children birthed with his wife.
From stepping on his female daughter’s vulva with a heel to denying his son food , Psalm states he still begs his children for forgiveness for not keeping a keen eye on them in Cape Coast leading to their maltreatment at the hands of his lover.
As it stands; Psalm Adjetefio says he has an enlarged heart, leading to poor pumping of the heart resulting in swollen feet according to his doctor.
“Some of my organs have shifted position. I am sick but I have to act to earn some money,” he tells Deloris Frimpong Manso, the show host.
Given that he had been perching with a friend at East Legon for some time and has to move to Dodowa requiring GHS10,000 to settle at the new place; Actress and TV Presenter; Gloria Osei-Sarfo who turned a year older on Wednesday, April 4, 2018 decided to celebrate her special day with some special people including Mr. Adjetefio.
