Born Psalm Ajetefio, TT — the name he gained playing the lead role of the popular sitcom, Taxi Driver– was the household name in the early 2000s. Life was comfortable back then when he had several streams of income to cater for himself and his family as a teacher and an actor.
TT left his ‘chamber and hall’ apartment at Adenta for a 3 bedroom house at Oyibi estates, life was good. He bought his first car, Peugeot 604 which didn’t serve its intended purpose after all.
Everything began to nose-dive when the popular sitcom was discontinued and he lost his job at Peace FM too. Answering Delay’s question, “Did it [the sitcom going off air] affect you?” TT said yes and no.
Yes because with Taxi Driver, at least I was assured of a regular something every week. And no because at that time I was known to the film fraternity so I was getting roles from other places.
He was able to cater for his family and still afford his rented 3 bedroom house from other productions he was involved in until the unexpected happened – the landlord won’t extend his tenancy. Psalm was forced to ‘runaway’ with his mistress who offered him peace of mind following his wife’s constant nagging.
In Cape Coast where he finally settled with his mistress, he realized the ordeal his children were going through as a result of the separation so he brought them in to live with him but the kids found no peace living with their stepmother.
It is good the children didn’t tell me earlier. If they had, I would have murdered somebody, TT added vehemently.
According to TT, his children suffered at the hands of their stepmother to the extent that she could ask TT’s daughter to lie down and open her legs so she can “drive her heel into the vulva of my daughter.”
My daughter hated me so much for this but she’s back with me now and we’re at peace and I’m hoping she [his wife] also finds her way home.
TT shed tears on the show for forsaking his children with regret asking for forgiveness from them.
However, Psalm Adjetefio has been diagnosed with an enlarged heart which does not allow it to pump blood fully to his body and therefore he’s appealing to the general public to come to his aid.
