Ti.t 4 Tat Is Not A Sin Right?: I Have Stopped Using Nigerian Actors & Actresse

To be frank, it has been so annoying over the last few months with so many Nigerian Actors, Actresses and Producers complaining about the influx of Ghanaian movie stars into Nollywood. They have been advising and admonishing themselves to stop using Ghanaian stars in Nollywood as they see these Ghanaian  stars are parasites and fully dependant on Nollywood.

Do not get me wrong, I am a champion of, inter alia, globalization, free trade and putting forces together between Ghana and Nigeria to build a strong movie industries. But it is disgusting and makes you feel “poo” as a jingoistic Ghanaian when you read or heard about such unfounded comments  from Nigerian Stars. I vividly remember one saying,  ”These Ghanaians are taken over our industry and to worsen it all, they have started even featuring in the Yoruba movies which we tend to keep to our self”.

Now here is what we got for them as things are getting better in our home too. You started it and we will help finish it for you. The last year saw a great success in the Ghanaian movie industry, Nigerians might have produced in quantity than Ghanaians , but in terms of quality, we were able to battled them head to head. Do I have to prove it by refering you to the African Movie Academy Awards nominations and winnings?.

On their constant out cry to stop  the incursion of Ghanaian stars into their industry, One of the best and first  movie production houses to bring Nigerians to Ghana, Venus Movies have stated categorically that, they have stopped and would not be using Nigerian movie stars anymore. Whether it is a good move or a bad one, I am down with them as the adage goes, bosom for Tat is never a sin. Read and listen to the audio below…

The most consistent Ghanaian movie producer of our time Alhaji Abdul Sallam Mumuni, C.E.O of Venus Films Production, has said that he has stopped using Nigerian actors and actresses in his movies.

Speaking to peacefmonline during the premiere of his new movie “4Play” at the Silverbird cinema on Friday June 4, 2010, he said he doesn’t see the need to import actors and actresses from Nigeria, when there are brilliant and perhaps better actors and actresses in Ghana who can interpret his stories well for Ghanaian movie lovers in every part of the globe, ReadMore,  http://www.ghanacelebrities.com/2010/06/bosom-for-tat-is-not-a-sin-right-i-have-stopped-using-nigerian-actors-actresses-abdul-sallam-mummuni/

So who cares? I have never heard any Nigerian actor or actress aspire to be featured in a Ghanaian film, lol. There is no Ghanaian actor or actress that can remain relevant without being involved in Nigerian film. Most of your most known have been absorbed into Nollywood. You may want to try and stop using Nigerian directors/producers etc, because you can hardly see one of your films without one.

This man is actually very silly, is this not the same man who has just cast Yvonne OKORO in 4play, the girl is actually half Nigerian. This same man who uses Frank rajah (A NIGERIAN) to direct virtually all his movies, lol

SILVERBIRD cinema he is using for his premieres? Its owned by a Nigerian.
