Self-confessed former lezbian, Kumawood actress Cecilia Konamah has added her voice to the statements that the Kumawood Movie Industry made up mostly of Akan speaking actors and actresses is dying if not dead.
About a year ago before the influx of Indian telenovelas on Ghanaian TV screens, Kumawood movies were the most vibrant movie industry in Ghana.
In fact, the so-called glamorous Ghallywood actors and actresses were switching to Kumawood to maintain their career.
But the industry has taken a nose dive. The president of Ashanti Region actors guild, Bill Asamoah in an interview revealed that the industry died because they were ignorant and did not match up with changing technology. They assumed things will always be as it was.
But speaking on the issue of the industry, Cecilia Konamah who is now married and claims she has stopped all the lezbian activities said the industry is not dead and neither is it dying.
According to her, every business once in a while becomes stagnant but it can’t be said the business is dead and that is the issue with Kumaood right now.
“Indian movies were on top some years back but the fact that they’re not vibrant in time but that does not suggest Bollywood is dead,” Kumawood’s Cecilia Konamah firmly stated in an interview.
The actress even added that for some weeks now, there has been a substantial increase in the purchase of Kumawood movies so things are starting to looking bright.
