In an interview with Jim Iyke on Joy FM’s Cosmopolitan, he shared his opinion on why the industry is suffering. Jim Iyke disclosed that Ghanaians aren’t enthusiastic to revive the dying movie industry.
He added that Ghanaians can save the industry by having a strong will, particularly among the grand stakeholders who are in the entertainment industry. He added that funds can be pumped into the movie industry. He also stated that the government if the movie industry wants to thrive.
I think the will is what supersedes every human intention. And you need government power with regards to financial institutions and they should be part of this narrative… they are absent here in Ghana… and thirdly the people should believe it can happen because Ghanaians already believe nothing good can come out of it which is wrong…, he said.
Until you begin to look at it that there is no option than to do or die…, sometimes you need that extremism for something to happen. That laid-back approach that if it doesn’t work it is fine… that is what I have seen here in Ghana, he added.
