” We’ve suffered before and it’s not a joke..Jackie was so thin that she was the same size as my arm….during our hustling days, we were done shooting a movie at OSU but we didn’t have money to go back home so we walked all the way from Osu to Dzorwulu..by the time we got to our destination, we were really drained of energy”. Majid narrated.

Majid touched on the challenges they faced in the movie Industry by asking the Government to help the industry grow. According to Majid Michel, it’s about time the Government priotize the Entertainment industry because it is one of the ways Ghanaian culture is being displayed to the world.

Jackie Appiah on the other hand called for unity in the industry. She also charged the youth looking up to them to not be in a hurry to make it within the shortest period of time because it’s not as easy as they think.

“We need foreign investors to invest in our movie Industry else we will not move forward like our Nigerian counterparts. We need them to help us get more cinemas to show our movies to the world”. Jackie reiterated.

Veteran Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, has explained why the failing movie Industry doesn’t need the support of the Government to bounce back.

According to Majid in an interview on Pure FM who had  a contrary view from his colleague actress and producer, Yvonne Nelson, the movie Industry has been striving without the intervention of the Government so there is  no need to call on them now.

Yvonne Nelson had stated in a letter addressed to various Government stakeholders that “We have heard some of our own on countless occasions slamming the industry for its decline with the favourite words ‘Ghana movie industry is dead’. It is quiet disturbing to hear these words being uttered when asked about our industry. A once well-structured industry with lots of entertainment to give cannot, and will not be abandoned for it to be ruined.”

“We aim to present a petition to the President and the Minister of Tourism, Creative arts and Culture citing the difficulties facing us in the industry. We want to bring unity to all industry players, we aim to uplift the Ghana movie industry again for the better by making sure there is allocation of special funds for producers, right payment structures for all involved in the industry especially the thespians, royalties and its right disbursement, local content being the major viewers’ choice on our networks and allocation of cinema halls in five major regions across the country.”

But Majid Michel who signed Yvonne’s petition stated that the only thing to revive the movie Industry is when things went back to old ways.

“We built this industry without the support from government so why now especially when they (Governments) have expressed less interest in this area over and over again…We need to go back to doing the things we were doing right in those days.”

“Yvonne is my friend and I signed her petition but I told her my view regardless. The question is are they interested? Hammer, the solution lies in us and not them,” he told host, Hammer Nti.
