Editor’s note:Well,the Ghana movie industry is one of the oldest in our entertainment circles.A lot Ghanaians love movies,but its decline in the past couple of years in very worrying.Almost all the actors , we use to know have now turned into producers.
Yvonne Nelson and co are now producing TV series instead of a short movie we use to enjoy then. It seems to be that the Kumawood is the surviving force in our movie industry now as compared to the English ones.Can something change ?Lets read on to see a revelation one of our reader got.
A Ghanaian up and coming movie actor, has made a revelation about the Ghana movie industry.
During an interview by DOFFACHIE AFRICA,he was asked about the future of the Ghanaian movie industry currently and the future from now,according to him…The movie industry is so dear to God and its part of ministerial work and a call but for some years now the movie industry is suffering to get to the top because of some immoral activities the bodies in that industry engaged in –the actors, actresses and the crew members (directors, cameramen, D.O.Ps etc.)
Some of this immoral activities are $exual fornication,alcoholism,smoking,stealing,occultism etc.Their engagement in such activities have allowed the spirit from the marine kingdom to take in charge or control the entire movie industry.
This has however affected many in the industry.Some of them suffer from marital problems, mostly the ladies. Some hardly get a successful marriage and some of the men becomes womanizers, they hardly can stay with one woman.
Many also involve themselves in the drinking of alcohol and smoking.Meanwhile in the other way round this people are actually expected to live a holy life so that the spirit of God can take over them and use them powerfully to educate the world through movie as part of ministerial work.
Let’s not forget that the picture of Jesus Christ that circulated throughout the world was the picture of an actor by name Gordon Powell who acted as Jesus in the story of the messiah, imagine how powerful movie is when it comes to telling a story. There were some men of God who entered into this industry with the mind set of assisting to overcome such situations but they later fell victims.
These are some of the problems and the difficulties the Ghanaian movie industry is going through. That’s why for sometime now they hardly come out with educative stuffs, what we normally watch or see in the movie market currently are comic movies and emulating other peoples culture.
He ended on the note that, this issue needs to be seriously dealt with by prayers and organizing seminars on education for the main purpose of the movie industry apart from becoming a star or making money.
He said ,that’s the only remedy for the solution or there will be no future for the movie industry in Ghana, you can have a great production, great story but because of the sins of some people, there will be no impact or meeting the dream target.
