Nana Ama McBrown: Every government ignores us.

0 69

Nana Ama McBown, a well-known actress and TV host, has lamented the high level of neglect the Ghanaian film industry has received from successive governments.

She claims that the government’s lack of attention to the film industry, as well as its inappropriate structuring, has resulted in a growth in unprofessional actors and producers in the country.

McBrown also blasted Ghana’s government for not investing in the country’s creative arts sector.

“They tend to forget us when they come to power, even when they promise and we vote.” I believe that entertainment should be included in the government’s revenue-generating structure. Even now, I’m not sure what’s going on with the Ghana Actors Guild; our producers have vanished. We are sometimes hesitant to discuss these issues, but the truth is that no one is assisting our industry. In an interview with Nana Aba Anamoah, she claimed, “No government has ever come to help us.”

“I know they’re giving it their all with players like Mark Okraku Mantey and Socrate Safo, but it’s not enough.” Because we don’t have infrastructure, several of the producers who used to be large have vanished. “Right now, everyone is on their own,” she continued.

Nana Ama McBrown pointed out the differences between the Ghanaian and Nigerian film industries, saying the latter is more structured, well-organized, and well-managed.

“In our field, there are no rules.” Anyone may stand up, rally people, shoot movies, and claim to be an actor or a producer. The government of Nigeria will issue a call for producers, and professional producers will meet with the government. They have a history.”
