Ghanaian TV presenter and a comedian, born Kweku Sintim Misa known popularly as KSM has reacted to the current name of Ghana’s movie industry changed from Ghallywood to Gollywood.
The official name (Gollywood) was announced at the 2nd Edition of the Ghana 60 Years on Film Summit which took place at the Accra International Conference Centre on the 12th of July 2018.
According to Kweku Sintim Misa, he was expecting the people in the creative industry to be a little creative rather than coming up with a name that lacks originality.

He took to his Twitter handle and wrote against the naming.
“GHOLLYWOOD? This name should be considered a CRIME. How can you be in the CREATIVE arts industry and come up with a name that lucks ORIGINALITY? Creative people ORIGINATE they don’t IMITATE”
