John Dumelo Declares His Stand On His Acting Career If Elected As MP



Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has disclosed in an interview that, being a parliamentarian will not stop him from pursuing his acting career.

According to him, there are lawyers, doctors and businessmen in Parliament still practising their original career choice.

“I’m sure parliamentary work or duties would take much of my time but yes once in a while I will still work on movies,” he said.

Award winning Dumelo added that, he will rather agree to roles that would help him balance the two careers well.

The actor announced his desire to go into politics some months before the 2016 elections. He recently won the slot for the National Democratic Congress’ 2020 parliamentary candidate for Ayawas West Wougon.

Although he has been campaigning for a while and engaging in youth forums and clean up exercises, John Dumelo still has time for his acting career.


Dumsor Is The Reason Kumawood Collapsed – Akrobeto Reveals



Veteran Ghanaian actor turned journalist, Akwesi Boadi aka Akrobeto has blamed ‘dumsor’, saying it is one major reason why the Kumawood industry failed and has not been better till date.

Speaking on Nana Ama McBrown’s ‘United Showbiz’ show aired on UTV monitored by Modernnewsgh.com, the issues with electricity under the leadership of John Mahama somewhat in 2013 to 2016 is the genesis of their problems as actors and film producers.

According to him in the company of his actors, he said the dumsor hijacked them and made them stopped doing their work because there was no means to watch the movie so Ghanaians were not patronizing it as they used to do initially.

Dumsor was a big problem to our work. It was the beginning of our owoes because we weren’t able to work as we used to do.”

“People could not even watch movies they buy and we weren’t able to churn out more content for our viewers,”he said.

Akrobeto’s assertion comes on the back of the decrease in the patronage of local movie content because many believe it lacks quality which is ultimately leading to the ‘death’ of the Ghana movie industry.

The experienced actor admitted that the movie industry in Ghana is not moving in the direction they want but they believe with the use of technology, they can stay ahead of the competition.

Ghana was plagued with ‘Dumsor’ between 2013 and 2016 which adversely affected many businesses and led to the massive loss of jobs. The situation is not as it used to be, but the ailing movie industry is yet to recover.
