The current bad state of the Ghanaian movie industry is really not helping our movie producers, movies directors, actors and actresses in the nation. They’ve been complaining bitterly that Ghanaians don’t buy or watch their movies anymore.
Several opinions and ideas have been shared by prominent Ghanaian personalities and celebrities in the movie industry to help bring back that passion Ghanaians had earlier for their movies.
Our movie industry is not booming properly, in fact, if we say something or someone is in crisis then the Ghana Movie industry is a perfect definition.
But there is something quite interesting albeit very unique about the men and women who ply their trade in this industry. They are mostly on point with their outfit or fashion sense anytime they are making an appearance anywhere.
The most useless of all the arts and entertainment industry which thrives on trivialities, hype and the ability to sleep with ‘Sugar Daddies’ with old wrinkled d*cks to be able to live a luxurious life is the Ghana Movie Industry.
This part of our entertainment industry has given rise and birth to monstrous and cancerous females who are only good at slaying on red carpet of events comparatively to’ slaying’ in movies and giving us breathtaking performances. Do you guys remember the last time any Ghanaian actor or actress gave as a heart-wrenching performance in any movie? I doubt.
Since the Ghanaian movie industry has been ‘buried alive’, its actors and actresses are finding alternative ways to get their daily bread.
The smart and hardworking ones among them are opting into agriculture and other alternative revenue sources but the lazy ones among them have also chosen to graduate in the ashawobrity game. This group is proudly represented by Akuapem Polo, the “all-over-the-place” actress.
Ghanacelebrities.com holds an unquestionable and unfathomable view or opinion that the Ghana movie industry is inherently dead, doesn’t pay, shitty and full of only “Ashawobrities“. Anytime we say or make this assertion several Ghanaian movie lovers who do not know much about the movie industry mostly disagrees with us. Some even go to the extent of insulting us just to protect their most loved actresses and actors. But we are in the industry and knows what goes on in there.
Have you asked yourself even in 2018 how many high budget Ghanaian movies have been shot and how many of our stars have featured in them? It is not even up to five and yet still our actresses live some of the most lavish and flashy lifestyles ever in this world. But you guys do not want us to question them as to what they do to earn that kind of money to live such a life. One day your father will give your school fees to one of these girls to chop for free and you will come to us ranting and crying.
The battle of Ashawobrities has begun as two former friends Benedicta Gafah and Xandy Kamel have now turn enemies and are washing their dirty linens in the public domain. People we call celebrities and are even role models to some kids displaying acts of tomfoolery in the public domain.
Ghanacelebrities.com has said and will continue to say that the Ghana movie industry is inherently dead and the flashy and glamorous lifestyle lived by many of the females in the industry is not as a result of the movies they feature in but as the result of the amorous relationships they have with several and numerous sugar daddies who chop them down and pay them for their services. So if you are a young girl and you are so desperate to join the movie industry find a better job to do and do acting as a hobby so that greedy and opportunistic men will not treat you like a rag.
You don’t need a genius to tell you that the NPP’s influential member, Mr Gabby Okyere-Darko has really bitten more than he can chew when he disclosed his disappointment in Ghanaian movie industry earlier on Peace FM.
Following his speech, several prominent Ghanaians and concerned movie lovers such as the actors and actresses themselves have emerged from their various hideouts lambasting him.
Ghanaian actress Yvonne has have spilled out her feelings on Gabby OKyere-Darko over the statement he made against Ghanaian movies.
Mr Okyere Darko who appears to have no idea of the suffering and hardship the Ghanaian movie industry is currently facing, stated on Peace 104.3 FM that he is very disappointed in the Ghanaian movie industry because they offer nothing to help Ghana’s developmental agendas.
Looks like all the veteran actors and actresses are totally against the new name given to the Ghana Movies industry (Gollywood) which is said to have been suggested by the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo Addo. Another veteran actress, Akorfa Edjeani has also spoken against the renaming and has disassociated herself from the new name (Gollywood).
Popular veteran Ghanaian actor and TV personality, David Dontoh has spoken against the renaming of the Ghana Movie Industry to Gollywood. Speaking in an interview on Star FM’s ‘The Zone’ Show on Wednesday, July 18, 2018, with, KOD, David Dontoh expressed his disappointment in the industry for giving a name he termed as “Allien” to the Ghanaian.
Kumawood actress, Gloria Osei Sarfo has stated that cliques are one of the many reasons why the movie industry is declining. According to the actress, the categorization of actors and actresses within the movie industry should be stopped to avoid any further damages to the industry.
Ghanaian actress, Gifty Adrah has disclosed some of the challenges she faced on her way up to becoming a popular actress as she is today. The actress speaking in an interview with NEWS-ONE disclosed she had to choose between being ‘banged’ by a producer or paying for a role in Ghana Movie Industry.
Over the years, we’ve written several articles about the deteriorating state of our movie industry – that’s if we truly have one functioning.
One of the key areas we keep hammering is how our scriptwriters go about writing their plots for various movies. Whilst the English speaking Ghallywood keep ‘stealing’ storylines from foreign producers, our Twi speaking Kumawood rely heavily on trending events making headlines in the country.
Over the years, we’ve seen significant improvements in both our Ghanaian movie industry and the music industry—though we are still on the hope road for that day when we can look at things and say, we’ve truly arrived.
Few years ago, the movie industry had diverse stories to tell but the actors, directors and even equipment to be used in telling these stories were a MESS, and that gave us different faces of sub-standard productions. Even today, we still have such sub-standard productions, but things are a fairly better than those years I am talking about.
Similarly, the Ghana music industry has its own dark days with poor music videos and sound quality being the hallmark of that era. Ironically, we seem to have had some good songs (I mean lyrically) during these dark days when we did not have up-to-date studios, sound engineers and production equipment.
Without any definition of terms, I assume the words quantity and quality are understood by almost everybody who is reading this article.
In our various works, we all strive to achieve what is best but it becomes absurd when a person decides to choose quantity over quality (excellence).
Let’s delve into the movie industry a bit (focusing largely on Kumawood). Countless new movies are released each and every day. Enter a movie shop you see around and ask for the latest Ghanaian movie in town. Over hundred movie CDs would be handed to you.
There wouldn’t be any problem if these movies are of high quality and good storylines. I sometimes wonder the kind of cameras they use to shoot those movies. I guess my phone’s camera can do a better job than the cameras they use. The picture and sound qualities of most of the so – called Ghanaian movies are nothing to write home about.
Yet, when you complain, all that the industry players can afford to tell you is to support your own and stop backbiting. How do I support something in which those involved are doing nothing to advance it? What is backbiting about putting the bare facts on the ground?
As human as I am, I work hard to earn money. It would therefore be sensible to spend that hard – earned money on things that are of good qualities. So when I patronise foreign movies, it is not that I want their industry to grow and leave ours hanging. It’s a simple logic; I want value my money.
….Maybe not a revolution, but they need to end the ‘business as usual era’. In recent times, some movie industry players have continued to work hard in bringing the movie up to a very good standard; yet, the clamour for more efforts to be made in order to improve the industry rages on as there … Read more

Ghana’s former President His Excellency John Agyekum Kuffour’s second son has also added his voice to the fact that, the country’s movie industry has the potential of being lucrative, if the needed investment and support are shifted to the direction and benefit of the industry. Speaking to journalists after screening of the latest Ghanaian movie ‘Wrong Target’ to the media, Mr. Agyekum Kuffour said it is only when people show interest and offer their support to the growing industry that, it has a potential of being lucrative. Describing the industry as ‘growing’ and doing well lately, he said he hopes to bring attention to the industry especially as a son of the former Head of State. “I can’t stop being a child of a politician. I didn’t choose that. I was born into the family and it’s been a blessing. So if my presence here with that background [as the son of the former president] will help the industry, then so be it”, he said confidently. Mr. Edward Agyekum Kuffour who appears to have developed a sudden knack for movies said the current crop of actors and crew memebers in the industry are doing marvelous. Having shot couple of movies which are yet to be released on the market, he recollected how his journey to the movie industry all began and how he got a cameo role in the movie ‘Wrong Target’. He said as a new actor, he was also auditioned before being handed the role to play as a friend and old school mate of John Dumelo.
