Labelling Actors ‘Kumawood’ Causes Division In The Industry – Emelia Brobbey


Actress Emelia Brobbey says the word ‘Kumawood’ is not the right term to address Kumasi based actors/actresses, noting that the term is actually the name of one person’s company and not the entire industry.

Brobbey, speaking on Kumasi radio station Sika Fm, said she also feels the use of the term is a divisive one, intended to divide into different industries when they are all basically Ghanaian actors.

“I hate that name Kumawood. Kumawood isn’t for actors, it’s somebody’s company name… someone who has organised awards, his company’s name is the Kumawood and Akoben Awards so it isn’t a brand name for actors from Kumasi. We’ve Ghana Actors Guild which most actors and actresses in Ghana are members, so I don’t get this brand ‘Kumawood’. I think automatically people are dividing the actors,” she said.

“I don’t believe in that name Kumawood because it pisses me off. Once we’ve a group recognised by Government (Ghana Actors Guild) stop branding us with other names.” she added.
