Bishop Charles Agyin Asare, founder of Perez Church International has shared some insights about Ghana's movie industry.
In an interview with Christian Agyei Frempong on Anigye Mere on Onua FM, he said the filmmaking industry in the country does not need prayers but rather a solid plan to move it from the current state.
“Even when God rains manna from heaven, you need to go out and collect them. Our movie industry is far beyond prayers for survival. All we need is a pragmatic approach and action to rub shoulders with the international market,” Agyin Asare stated as quoted in a 3news report.
He also added that the proliferation of foreign soaps on Ghanaian airwaves is a threat to society because the cultures portrayed in the productions are strange and will have a negative effect on Ghanaians.
On May 19, 2021, YEN.com.gh published a feature about the factors behind the decline of Ghana's once vibrant movie industry. The factors include funding, high charges by A-list actors, shortage of acting talents, and Ghanaians being tired of the same old storyline.
In other news, Dancehall music star Shatta Wale, born Charles Nii Amarh Mensah Jnr has been trending on social media. The trend follows new photos Shatta Wale shared on Instagram a few days ago in which he rocked a white t-shirt over a pair of jeans.
Sharing the photos, Shatta Wale had included a close-up shot which revealed the jeans he was wearing to be DSQUARED2, an Italian fashion brand.
A check on the internet indicates that the type of DSQUARED2 jeans Shatta Wale was wearing cost from 670 US dollars upwards. That means one would have to pay in excess of GHC3,900 to buy one in Ghana.
