Comedy in Ghana just got finer as one of the craziest and most creative movie production houses in Africa, ‘Talents United’ brings you ‘Azonto Boys’, a film written and directed by KOBI RANA. It is amazing how a simple day in typical Accra fishing community becomes so complicated and extremely funny with intense suspense that refreshes the audience emotions from the opening to end credits. Film enthusiasts who have seen ‘Kiss Me If U Can’, ‘2bad’ and ‘Hotel Babylon’ testify that the young multi-talented actor, writer and director is always unique and excellent in storytelling. For the first time, after working with some of the most popular names in the African cinema, Kobi Rana gives opportunities to new and talented actors in this new movie. To mention but a few, Bismark Odoi, Leo Mensah, Kaf Jr, Pendor Borkum and Cindy Sesa.
Ghanaian writer and director Kobi Rana has defended why he overlooked Ghanaian actors for Nollywood legendary actor Ramsey Nouah Jnr. when casting for his latest blockbuster ‘Hotel Babylon; Where Clothes Are Naked’. The movie with obviously many supporting characters or probably no supporting characters had the Nollywood actor as the lead. His performance in the movie was a top notch and may confirm why he was picked ahead of the many Ghanaian Actors. After the screening, the young African movie maker was subjected to series of questions by journalists. One question which nearly caused a rift between the movie maker and some journalists was the issue concerning the casting of the leading character in the movie.

Contrary to what many people think, there are essentially enough movie directors in Ghana. The only problem is that, they don’t get scripts to direct.
Several reasons have been given for their inability to get scripts. The most common of all the reasons is, they are not fully committed at their job as movie directors, whereas the Nollywood directors are said to be the exact opposite.
From movies released, it appears that movie directors from Nollywood have been offered permanent seats in the Ghana Movie Industry –demoting their counterparts in Ghana to the background. They seem to have taken over their jobs.
The presence of Nollywood movie directors inGhanais very noticeable. Their number is huge and the list is a tall one. If a movie is not directed by Phil Bernard then it will be Ish Thompson or Willie Ajenge or maybe Ofam Okereke. If it is not Ifeanyi Onyeabor and Tchidi Chikere or John Izedonmi then your guess will be right, because it will certainly be Frank Raja Arase or Pascal Amanfo.
And the list keeps growing. Where are the Ghanaian movie directors?
In GhanaCelebrities.Com’s interaction with some of the biggest movie producers inGhanawho pleaded to remain anonymous, they mentioned that top movie producers prefer to offer their scripts to Nollywood movie directors to direct at the expense of the Ghanaians.
The Nigerian directors are said to be very well involved in their jobs but same can’t be said of the Ghanaian directors. The only way to avoid embarrassment or disgrace is to learn. According to the top producers, the Nigerian directors keep updating themselves, something that remains a dream to their Ghanaian counterparts.
