Part 1: Celebrities Talk To GC About Their Expectations For 2012!

2011 has come and gone. It was a good year for most people whiles others continue to bemoan about the fact that they hardly made the needed impact as they got few success.
GhanaCelebrities.Com spoke with various personalities in the movie, music, comedy and fashion industry. Below are what some of your favourite celebrities had to say about their expectation for 2012.
Ama K. Abebrese [Actress]:
Better quality and better story lines that can crossover to different markets. I think the bar has been raised with some good movies in 2011, so we have to keep upgrading
However, I feel there is a market for local movies of lower quality and that will continue because they have their audience.
Shirley Frimpong Manso [Writer, Director  & Producer]:
My expectation is to see a more professional driven Movie Industry where actors will challenge themselves with meaningful roles and stronger performances and directors and writers inspired to write life changing stories for them.
John Dumelo [Actor]:
Closer to God, do very good movies, do more charity work and also make sure that J.Melo products  are found in every shop around the world.
Okyeame Quophi [Musician & Music Video Director]:
To me 2012 holds a lot for the Ghana Music Industry. 2011 introduced Azonto and replaced GH rap with its own kind of music. Up tempo Afro rhyme with infectious hooks and choruses. I see an extension of which 2011 started but I also foresee the spotlight on kids between 6 and 15 taking centre stage and drawing lots of crowds.
Considering that our industry is a total reflection of what happens in America, the success of Willow and Jayden Smith will definitely be repeated but in our Ghanaian terms. Don’t be surprised if I start the movement.
Given the track record of Bice Osei Kuffour [MUSIGA President] I have a strong feeling something major will happen that will shape and change the industry for better. At least Obour owes that to us who supported his vision and gave him power. Happy New Year comrades.
Roger Quartey [Actor, Production Manager & Producer] of Roger Q Production:
From the studios of Roger Q Productions, we say Happy New Year and a creative 2012. Our Movie Industry has seen great transformation in the last few years. We should not use our God given talent to compete among ourselves but rather bring collective ideas to enhance our artistic works for the international markets.
My expectation  this year is for us to expand our marketing scope. There are lot of distributing channels to exploit. We should not just release our movies but send them for world premieres and film festivals. I am also appealing to stakeholders of this esteem industry to sacrifice a little as far as their expertise contributes in sharpening our industry. Long live Ghana. Long live our Movie Industry.
James Gardiner [Actor]:
To become a movie icon that most people will look up to especially the youth.
Beverly Afaglo [Actress]:
To make more movies and make more money.
Juliet Ibrahim [Actress]:
I have so many great expectations but i will be a doer this year in order to achieve these expectations. One of them is to work on the successful awareness campaign of my kidney cancer foundation worldwide and the rest. I leave up to God because would be full of surprises.
Roselyn Ngissah [Actress]:
The Movie Industry has been growing over the years and in the right direction. My expectations this year is that every department that contributes to the making of a movie and the industry must as a matter of fact step up their game both technically and artistically.
Whether it be Make-Up, Costume, Directing, Acting, Production Management etc. We have done well over the years, from international nominations and awards. But there is still room for better performance.
Chichi [Actress]:
I want to believe that, 2012 is my year. I have been in the industry for so long but still no breakthrough but I have a strong feelings that God is about to change my story.
In 2012, nobody is going to suppress me. Enough of the suppression and all that. All those who have been suppressing me died in 2011, so it’s my time to shine; yes my set time is here.
God is going to use stringer to make it happen for me. I also blessed God for all friends who we all started together but became successful. I am also going to be successful this year. I am not jealous of anyone but rather happy for all my friends and hope as God is about to bless me through the eyes of faith. No one should envy me; yes I’m speaking through the eyes of faith.
Pascal Amanfo [Actor & Movie Director]:
A year of better opportunities, more challenging projects and a greater insistence of improved technicalities.
Adjetey ‘Pusher’ Anang [Actor]:
Hope that more Ghana actors/actresses will break into Movie Industries beyond Africa.
