The nephew Of the president of Ghana, Gabby Otchere-Darko who is also the director of the Dankwah institute has courted the displeasure of movie makers in Ghana and already some renowned actresses and actors including Yvonne Nelson and Kafui Danku have angrily descended on him for his unfortunate comments about Ghana movie industry.

Gabby tweeted:

“I took my time to watch randomly ten Ghanaian movies and never felt so disappointed. It brought home to me one major deficiency in our development. The apparent lack of deliberate consciousness on the part of the creative industry in the development conversation. The presence of the creative industry appears at best peripheral in Ghana’s development narrative. Our movies, our songs, our arts, by and large, do not impactfully plug into a greater development agenda. Hollywood, for the best part of a century, has been deliberately used by America to push successfully American cultural “supremacy” agenda; it has been used as an effective instrument of military or economic indoctrination. But, what has been the underlying consciousness behind our creative industry, if any? What role, for instance, can actors in the creative industry play to define and realize this whole important concept of moving Ghana Beyond Aid? We must elevate consciousness in Ghana if we are serious about winning”.

Kafui Danku, the renowned actress and movie producer reacting to this statement made by Gabby Otchere-Darko stated it is time “people will forget about their position and age and face bare facts”.

She tweeted:

“Honestly, I wish we can have this conversation openly and I also wish people will forget about their position and age and face bare facts. I wish…. I wish… I wish. @yvonnenelsongh I want to talk, not type”.

Yvonne Nelson also jumped in and expressed her disappointment with the statement from Gabby Otchere-Darko and questioned how they will be effective as Holywood when the needed structures are not there to push the industry forward.

Yvonne Nelson Tweeted:

Leadership!!!!! We need structures in place and some encouragement not this! What do we do when TV networks get cheaper content from India and Latin America?

Adjetey Annan who couldn’t believe the statement from Gabby Otchere-Darko also tweeted:

One would expect that after watching your “random movies”, you would engage stakeholders or individuals who keep financing our own works to keep our little flame alive by keeping our audiences entertained, educated and informed. Tell us what you think we can do to improve the industry, what role your govt can play in giving us that needed support etc. I am very disappointed that you rather took to the media to voice your disappointment and in a very condescending way too, to rubbish our efforts. We aren’t rubbish Sir. Many of us, like myself are highly educated, talented and exposed and we simply believe that this is an untapped gold mine for Ghana’s economy so despite the frustrating challenges and the lack of commensurate rewards for the volume of work we put in; we forge on… working hard night and day, positively projecting the image of Ghana everywhere we go; hoping that someday our star will shine. Please make time to engage us and listen to us… as the Desiderata says *”…listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story*” we can together move this industry forward, if only your comments would be constructive and not condescending
