Veteran actor Dan Tei Mensah has denied rumours that the Film Producers of Ghana (FIPAG) has banned him because he is shooting his own movie with some crew members who are considered as foreigners.
“Nobody has said anything to me about ban or sidelining me. I just spoke with Socrates Sarfo yesterday and he did not tell me anything about banning me, so I don’t know why these guys are cooking up this rumoured ban. I have not been banned,” he told NEWS-ONE on Wednesday evening.
Dan is one of Ghana’s veteran actors and has featured in a number of Ghanaian movies. Among his movie are ‘Shadows From The Past’, ‘Without Her Concern’, ‘Wedlock’, ‘Ogboo Nana’, ‘Man-Woman’, ‘Chelsea’ and a number of others. In all, he has featured in over 100 movies from a career that started in 1985.
He has worked with Venus Films for the last few years and is now trying his hands on producing his own movie.
The upcoming movie, which title is not out yet, features stars like Roselyn Ngissah, John Dumelo, Frank Artus and a few others. It is being directed by Pascal Amanfo, whose works in Ghana’s movie industry for the past year won a number of recognitions.
Last year, ‘Trinity’, a movie he directed, won awards for Ghana at the ZAFAA in UK. He has directed yet-to-be-released movies like ‘Bed of Roses’ and ‘Familiar Strangers’.
He is also working on Roger Quartey’s upcoming movie.
