Ghanaian actor, Prince David Osei in an interview with Deloris Frimpong Manso on the “Delay” show has attributed the collapse of the Ghanaian movie industry to the display of arrogance by some actors and actresses.
The versatile actor said;
“When we talk about things that contributed to the collapse of the industry, one is piracy, as for individual differences we can work with it after all everyone has a different temperament, but piracy, lack of good distribution network and arrogance on the part of some of us. We thought we were too big and the movies can’t thrive without us, sometimes fame gets into your head so we are all culpable.”
On the question of whether he sees the “dead” industry ‘resurrecting’ in the coming years, he said;
“Yes it has picked up, I’ve shot a lot of movies since I returned from the US and people are shooting, unlike when I left for the US, nothing was going on but people are shooting now.”
Prince David Osei recently starred in four episodes of the TV Series (Scratch) in Hollywood which is set to be aired on CBS.
