The majority of Ghanaians have been complaining about the declination of Ghanaian movies and have wondered what really might have gone wrong.
Some entertainment pundits have blamed Television stations in the country for their numerous telecasting of foreign Televenolas.
However, according to Socrates Sarfo, an Award-winning movie producer and board member of Zylofon Art Fund, speaking in an interview confessed that he played a role in the ‘killing’ of the movie industry.
“We have a film like ‘Ghost tears’ to GBC and they gave us an advert to advertise our new movie. Instead of going to pay for it, we thought it was cheaper for us, we were so smart that we are outsmarting the TV stations, so they will give us advert and give us money and advertise our new movies.
That was what we did and everybody jumped on it and what happened? The TV stations owning the films”, he disclosed.
He continued his revelations and said, at first producers were able to sell about 100,000 copies in the market but things have really changed as compared to the number of copies they sell these days.
“We used to sell 100,000 copies in the market and today they are not able to sell 5,000 copies”, he added.
