It is clear that the Ghana movie industry is currently not doing well, it’s ‘dead’ and you don’t need a rocket scientist to convince you before you believe as a Ghanaian.
We have abandoned our own local movies and hailed foreign movies and telenovelas to the detriment of our own. Even though local movies lack the quality but that’s not enough reason for its neglect.
Movie stars have no jobs and keep lamenting about the influx of foreign content on our local television networks.
Popular Kumawood actor, Agya Koo has promised to bounce back in 2018 after being in hibernation for years in the movie industry.
Agya Koo has put the blame on the doorsteps of individuals who took over from him saying they did not work hard enough to lift the image of the movie industry and that has made Ghanaians to miss him.
“I am coming back to the screens because as a landlord, I need to come and take over my house because those who took my place have left the room with a lot of cobwebs and I need to come and make things right in order to bring joy to homes like I used to during my hay days”.
The actor who was speaking at the extraordinary national delegates conference of the NPP indicated that in his absence, the Nigerian movie industry took over the movie on the continent but his return will bring back the lost glory of the Ghana Movie Industry.
“People have asked for my return and I have considered their calls and I’m coming back in full swing next year. My return to the movie will make the Nigerian Movie Industry put their hands on their head and cry because I am bringing something new and great to the industry in Ghana,” he told Kwame Adinkra on Abusua FM.
“Next year, you just have to download 2C TV because we will be loading all Agya Koo movies on there for your viewing pleasure. We will also load all the new movies that promises to take over the screens of the country so Ghanaians should just be on the watch out for me”.
He concluded by pleading with Ghanaians to remember him in prayers and also throw their support behind him as he embarks on a journey of reviving the ‘dead’ movie industry.
