An upcoming Kumawood actor, Emmanuel Yeboah, has called on Government to invest money into the creative arts industry to prevent it from collapsing. His call comes on the back of the decline in patronage of local movies by Ghanaians.
The standard of movies produced in Ghana is low and Emmanuel Yeboah popularly known as Cobby Jampar, believes the Government of Ghana has a role to play in reviving it and making it competitive.
Speaking to Peacefmonline.com, he noted that “the industry is dying as a result of lack of inadequate capital for producers”.
The actor who has featured in movies such as Perfect Love, Yaa Broni and Black Monkey continued that government “should come to our aid by creating some fund or capital for us to invest in the film making so that all actors and actress can get something doing”.
Cobby Jampar explained that the state of Ghana’s creative art industry is despicable forcing most of our celebrities to move to overseas to seek greener pasture.
