Popular Kumawood actor, Kwaku Manu, has bemoaned the state of the Ghanaian movie industry, and has stated that movie stars may soon begin to sell coconuts.
According to a report by GHIssues.com, the actor said Ghanaian movies are not patronized, and if the trend continues, it may lead to serious consequences.
Speaking on the ‘Delay Show on Sunday, May 27, 2018, he noted that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is responsible for the downturn in the fortunes of the industry, as the current administration has totally left them to their fate.
Kwaku Manu went on to say that his colleague actors and actresses will soon hit the streets to sell coconuts, if the government does not treat the industry like their own property.
“The president has met with the press twice since he came into government but he has never mentioned anything about the movie industry.
Trust me, if something is not done soon, in the next four years, actors will go into coconut selling business” he stressed.
He revealed the president is yet to organize a meeting with movie producers to discuss the well-being of the industry.
Again, some attitudes exhibited by his colleagues, produces, directors hinder the progress of the industry.
Kwaku Manu further concluded by saying that unlike the Ghana movie industry, there is so much love and unity among Nollywood actors and actresses.
