Veteran Kumawood actor Kwaku Twumasi has commended the Ghana Actors Guild (GAG) for the support they offered him when he was seriously ill.
Kwaku Twumasi is currently recovering from an illness that that confined to a bed for a while and also took him away from the acting scene.
In an interview with UTV, the award-winning actor said the association visited him and gave him a phone and an amount of GHC 200.
“I received support from a lot of people. The leadership of Ghana Actors Guild (GAG) came to visit me and they gave me GHC200 and a phone” Mr Twumasi narrated.
“Seriously they did very well because not all industry players will get GHC200 and Phone from the Association. I was even lucky to have such kind gesture from the leadership”.
Kwaku Twumasi says he is currently trying hard to convince the leadership of the industry to set up a fund to support members in the industry in hard times.
“We should make good use of the industry. The Association can set up a welfare fund to assist members in crisis," he disclosed.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghanaian songstress Becca had come under serious criticism for allegedly copying South African Sho Madjozi’s ‘John Cena’ hit song.
These accusations started after Becca released her 'No One' song which is a direct replica of Sho Madjozi’s ‘John Cena' hit song.
Comparing Becca's 'No One' to Sho Madjozi’s ‘John Cena’, it is clear that there are a lot of similarities between the two songs and since 'John Cena' came out first, most Ghanaians have concluded that it was Becca who sampled the song.
However, it is unclear whether Becca sought permission from Maya Christinah Xichavo Wegerif, popularly known as Sho Madjozi’s before using her beat and sampling her style and rhythm for her song.
