Actress and movie producer, Ama Ok. Abebrese
According to her, it’s tough for anybody to inform the particular identities related to the sector as a result of government has not invested enough into it.
“In order for you to think of a place and instantly think of their identity, do you know what that means? It means they have invested in promoting that identity. Has there been any serious investment made in Ghana to promote a certain identity?
“Ghanaians do have an identity, I will not say it’s just one thing but as for the reason why you’ll think of Hollywood and think America is as a result of billions of dollars of investments.
“Same goes for India and other parts of the world. Identity is not one thing. Identity could be a few things. I don’t know if Ghana has an identity with arts,” the movie producer told Noella Kharyne Yalley in an interview on Xclusives.
The British-Ghanaian actress noticed that similar to how India might be noted for his or her movie business (Bollywood), or Nigeria for Afrobeats, Ghana can’t be noted for any particular sort of arts as a result of the state has not invested enough in carving a distinct segment for itself in arts.
Other business gamers have made a case for an all-around funding in the sector and other thematic areas.
This, they imagine, will help to diversify the economic system by paying extra consideration to the creative arts business, which holds nice potential to rake in income for the country.
