Lil Win fires his detractors

According to Lil Win, he has produced numerous movies featuring an all-Ghanaian cast, from Mr President to Cocoa Season.

In most of them, the actor intentionally featured top stars and socialites, including Jupitar and Fameye, yet the movies failed to gain the traction his upcoming movie has amassed so far.

Lil Win recalled how fans and other media personalities constantly criticised movie producers for being "one way" and is baffled by the current criticisms as he is trying to spice things up with A Country Called Ghana.

"The total film crew for A Country Called Ghana is about 150, with only three Nigerians, so why are still people complaining?" Lil Win quizzed during the interview.

The Ghanaian actor expressed that his decision to feature Ramsey Nouah, Victor Osuwagu and Charles Awuram in A Country Called Ghana is a dream come true and an intentional effort to deepen the exchange between both movie nations.
