Anybody who honoured the one week observation of the late Rev. Eddie Azumah Coffie could easily have wondered if the late actor served the actors’ guild during his tenure.
Most of the movie stars in the industry were not present at the one week celebration of the late Rev. Eddie Azumah Coffie, the President of the Ghana Actors Guild who passed away in October.
The ceremony was observed without the likes of the Yvonnes, Nadia, Kalsoum, Van, Majid, David, Martha, Mercy Asiedu,Nana Ama Mcbrown, Emelia Brobbey, John Dumelo, Bill Asamoah.
The family of the late President of the Ghana Actors’ Guild was equally seemingly disappointed at the low attendance at the one week celebration and the question many asked was were are the members of the acting fraternity?
The families disappointment was heightened when the names of dignitaries that had honoured the occasion was mentioned. These included the likes of President of the film producers association of Ghana, Mr. Asare Hackman, the Public Relations Officer, Mr. Michael Kwaku Ola, the Ex-president of the actors guild, Mr. Odoi Mensah, some ARSOG members, Dzifa Ametepke, an actress, Don Ziggy and some seats filled by some acting clubs members.
Few film directors like Mr. Asare Bediako, Richard Boateng, Haruna Seidu, Etc and the crew association also made their presence felt at the event.
The absence of the actors to support their late President posed a question of whether the actors’ guild is really alive and if the known screen faces of the film industry part of the actors’ guild?
