The Movie Industry Doesn’t Need Government Intervention – Majid Michel

Published

on

Veteran Ghanaian actor, Majid Michel, has explained why the failing movie Industry doesn’t need the support of the Government to bounce back.

According to Majid in an interview on Pure FM who had  a contrary view from his colleague actress and producer, Yvonne Nelson, the movie Industry has been striving without the intervention of the Government so there is  no need to call on them now.

Yvonne Nelson had stated in a letter addressed to various Government stakeholders that “We have heard some of our own on countless occasions slamming the industry for its decline with the favourite words ‘Ghana movie industry is dead’. It is quiet disturbing to hear these words being uttered when asked about our industry. A once well-structured industry with lots of entertainment to give cannot, and will not be abandoned for it to be ruined.”

We aim to present a petition to the President and the Minister of Tourism, Creative arts and Culture citing the difficulties facing us in the industry. We want to bring unity to all industry players, we aim to uplift the Ghana movie industry again for the better by making sure there is allocation of special funds for producers, right payment structures for all involved in the industry especially the thespians, royalties and its right disbursement, local content being the major viewers’ choice on our networks and allocation of cinema halls in five major regions across the country.”

But Majid Michel who signed Yvonne’s petition stated that the only thing to revive the movie Industry is when things went back to old ways.

“We built this industry without the support from government so why now especially when they (Governments) have expressed less interest in this area over and over again…We need to go back to doing the things we were doing right in those days.”

“Yvonne is my friend and I signed her petition but I told her my view regardless. The question is are they interested? Hammer, the solution lies in us and not them,” he told host, Hammer Nti.
