Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu says all the talks about fixing the entertainment industry, specifically the movie industry is just cheap talk if the government does not push money into it because that is the only thing that can help the situation.
In an interview with Showbiz, he reportedly said; “Producers have run out of money and nothing is happening. One is expected to organize a premiere when he comes out with a movie, and all that involves money. I believe the industry can be revived when money is invested in the sector.
“That is why I was very sad and worried when Menzgold’s Nana Appiah Mensah got into trouble because he had very good plans for the industry. It is rather unfortunate that his plans didn’t see the light of day because of the challenges his company went through.”
“We have only one National Theatre in the country. The government should put up a cinema house in every regional capital where producers can premiere their movies and also show them. This will certainly go a long way to revive the industry,” he added.
