The Minister of Toursim, Arts and Culture, Madam Catherine Afeku, has revealed that government is willing to work in collaboration with Zylofon Media on the company's creative arts fund aimed at helping people who have promising projects but lack the proper funding.
A few days ago, Zylofon Media, currently the biggest entertainment management firm in Ghana, announced that it was setting up a $1,000,000 Zylofon Arts fund in order to help fund projects in the creative arts industry that show promise, but lack proper financial backing.
Speaking in a recent interview with Hitz FM's Andy Dosty on the Daybreak morning show, Madam Catherine Afeku revealed that her ministry would like to work with Zylofon Media on their Zylofon Arts fund in order to help the creative arts industry.
"…Of course, we are ready to collaborate with them. I actually sent Socrates Sarfo who is one of us to represent and pledge our support at the event. We spoke behind the scenes but I am very much interested.

The creative Arts Secretariat, Bibi Bright is [there as] the link between us and Zylofon…," said the minister during the interview.
Tourism Minister Afeku also responded to calls that government has neglected the creative arts industry, and said the Information Minister will organize a "Meet the Press" event so those in the industry that could not ask a question can get the chance to do so.
She said she hoped the press meeting - which will take place on January 28th, 2018 - would go a little ways towards addressing the concerns leveled at her ministry.
