Government must fund movie industry Mama Cali

Many people have given their opinion on what they think can be done to revive the movie industry, and for veteran actress Adwoa Boahemaa, popularly known as Mama Cali, government should fund the industry. “I have heard that government will put up some theatres for us as well as a film village but I believe if some appreciable amount of money is also injected into the system, it will go a long way to revive the industry.” “We get some royalties from ARSOG and it used to be quite substantial but these days, it is very small so, perhaps, government can come in to support so that we can take home a reasonable amount of money,” she told Graphic Showbiz recently.

I Am Not Quitting Comedy- DKB

DKB has disappointed people who were jubilating over his announcement earlier this week that he was quitting comedy. This is because the ‘King of Ghanaian comedy’ has made a U-turn, indicating he is no longer quitting. DKB indicated that the earlier decision to say bye to the comedy industry was just a prank to ‘expose’ his enemies. “I faked my retirement from comedy and so many people who wished my downfall were exposed, including this dim-witted blogger,” he said and refused to mention who the blogger is because he didn’t want to promote the person. “I have two questions I need your help with; is doing comedy in Ghana a crime to receive such enormous amount of hatred? How come you’ll never find such degrading stories on Nigerian websites about Nigerian comedians,” he added i...

The sheer incompetence which run the economy into the ground and brought healthcare to its knees. The economy that could not pay even Teacher and Nursing Trainee allowances. That could not employ graduates. That had no credibility so had to run to the IMF for cover. That is the alternative. That alternative is empty. That alternative is scary. “Af...
