According to an article film-maker Leila Djansi published, she spent almost half a million dollars on her movie-Sinking Sands in Ghana alone and in fact, she lost money on that production…

In the said blog post, she wrote;

“I spent, excluding marketing and finishing, almost 500,000 dollars in Ghana alone. I laid out a good amount of money for the marketing of the film. Some was spent on the marketing, Senanu Gbedawo enjoyed the rest. The theater was empty. I lost money. if I hadn’t found a buyer here in the States, I don’t know what I’d have done.”

In the same post, Leila Djansi who Socrate Sarfo has once said she was his student (apprentice) on film set threw some daggers and some landed on Socrate Sarfo’s doorsteps.

According to Leila, there is no difference between charging people for auditions and a film-maker like Socrate Sarfo and the others owning acting clubs. And if the former is unacceptable or equals to corruption, the latter should fit the same box.

The Director wrote;

“Remember, it is wrong for production companies to have acting clubs or acting schools. It is very very wrong. But, that’s what’s happening. I fail to understand the double standard of people like Socrates Safo and co. I heard sometime ago they went to stop a producer from charging for auditions. Why then you do Socrates have an acting club? What’s the difference?”

Leila Djansi have had some tough and wrong times making films in Ghana. At one point, she even announced that she will be making more films in Ghana. But for whatever reason, she had to swallow her own words and return…

  5. jeanie, what good example are you speakin off? why not read the blog and understand why she brings up someone who stole her money? this is ekwensu spirit at its highest level. abeg please don’t be a fan. you are fan of tomatoes movies and that is not what `leila `djansi makes. ago away. we beg una. real producers always say the budget of their movies. so if she says she spent 500,000 thousand, is that bragging?yur envy of this woman is no longer hideable. i swear. did she steal? did she sleep with una husband? what good example are you talking about? she makes the best movies in Africa. even CNN says so.
    i am getting very sick and tired of you people on this website. you cannot form your own opinion about people by getting to know them. u form yur opinion by what `chris tells you. abi `chris tells u how to do yur husband in the bedroom too? i don tire for una. hater nation, hater citizens. that’s what you are. 

    1. What is your problem at all? Why do I feel like this is Leila herself commenting here and talking crap as usual? You have a total of 4 comments and it is all under this article meaning you seem new here yet you are talking about the people of this website and chris and that lol

      Leave us a lone to think what we want. This leila woman is nothing, she is full of crap yet she cant shut up

      1. hahahah trust me is her… whenever there’s an article about her you will see all types of names hyping her like she’s the only director in the country mtchewww.. She’s not even that good would pick abdul sallam million times over her.

  6. abeg carry yur bad belle go lily. who cares where you live? how can you say she is bragging? if she spent 500,000 on the film why should she not say so? in countries where they make proper movies, they always say the budget so why the skin pain? ok. if she had said she spent 20,000 on the film wud that have made you feel better? una go like that one abi? what advise should I give her? am i’m not perfect, `i will not claim to advise someone i don’t know. i only know her from facebook and her good works. i am not that full of myself to advise someone who is doing great things. so, u Nne cash and carry, u shut up. go and learn something. it will help you and stop hating. 

  7. see devil. I have always comment on here under hollywood 411. when i comment on Yvon Nelson or Jackie, I am not Leila. But when I comment on Leila then I’m her. admit it. you are jealous! una craze past. u think people don’t like leila? we love her. in fact, i would marry her if i were a man. tolotolo. its very obvious you are jealous. u think insulting her on this site makes her less than what she is? she better than all of yur producers combined. and you know that. that is why you gang up to hate on her. what havent you tried on this website to hate on her? u said she was not using hollywood stars on her movie, she did not only use them, she even made a hollywood film. find a gun because una need am. 

    1. So how come you only have 5 total comments if you claim that you have been commenting here all the time is true? and how come you are defending Leila like some god? we can all see the writing on the wall
