“Only money can fix ‘broken’ Ghana movie industry” – Kwaku Manu


Kumawood actor, Kwaku Manu has stated clearly that the ‘broken’ movie industry can be fixed with money only and nothing else.

Speaking in an interview, the comic actor indicated all that the industry needs at the moment is for the government to pump in money.

According to Kwaku Manu, enough of the long talk and suggestion such as appropriate structures, distribution channels, fight against piracy, among others are all meaningless without money.

He 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.”
