Freedom and Justice, a movie by Ghanaian filmmaker, Kobi Rana, that was banned from premiering by the Ghana Tourism Authority is set to come out this Friday, April 2, 2021.
As it was previously reported, the film was first scheduled to be premiered at 11 major towns and cities around the country from December 25, 2020, to January 2, 2021.
See the new premiering flier below:
An official statement from the movie producers shared by Kafui Danku indicated that the movie had already sold 2,154 tickets.
However, the venues for the premiers were reportedly served notices from the Ghana Tourism Authority to not show the movie, with no information to the movie producers themselves.
The statement also categorically mentioned that the venues were visited, warned and locked by armed policemen to ensure that the movie does not premier.
The producers of the movie decided to abide by the rules and cancelled all the lined-up shows until now.
Freedom and Justice is set to be premiered on Kobiranafilms.com today, April 2.
Away from the movie, a beautiful 12-year-old Ghanaian girl named Veronique Nayra Dagadu-Gokah who kept her natural hair for seven years in school has been suddenly asked to trim it down.
Narrating the development to YEN.com.gh, Veronique's uncle Frank Atsu Agbavor and mother Lois Penu mentioned that the young girl was emotionally drained as a result of the declaration.
It is also indicated that Veronique has always been the number one in her class for a long time with her natural hair on, which is why the new directive was found troubling.
