ARROGANCE FROM ACTORS KILLED THE GHALLYWOOD MOVIE INDUSTRY-PRINCE DAVID OSEI SAYS.
Ghallywood is experiencing yet another nose dive and this time around star actor Prince David Osei is actually putting the blame on themselves instead of the cliche piracy control we are use to hearing. And lets not forget this isnt the first time the ghanaian film industry has collapsed, back in the day it almost went completly non existent until Venus film producer Abdul Salam mumuni Introduced us to new millenium faces with the likes of Jackie Appiah, Nadia Buhari, Van Vicker, Majid Michelle etc.
Prince David had a sit down interview with Delay and when asked about what he thought was responsible for the drought in the industry this was what he had to say. “When we talk about things that contributed to the collapse of the industry, one is piracy, as for individual differences we can work with it, after all everyone has a different temperament, but piracy, lack of good distribution network and ARROGANCE on the part of some of us ACTORS. We thought we were too big and the movies can’t thrive without us, sometimes fame gets into your head so we are all culpable.” Do you think he has a point?

He claimed these are cpmpletely different genres and they both have their target audiences. Kwaku Gyasi, who currently resides in Canada, revealed to Happy FM that he will return to Ghana for a gospel show in August this year.

We have not been paid our winning bonuses for seven matches now and they have asked us to go home without our salary. I don’t think it’s fair,” one player noted.
Another also saidthat, some of the players believe that their conditions of service are better than some Premier League clubs and do not see the non-payment of winning bonuses as an issue whilst others s believe the bankroller of the club Nana Appiah Mensah is oblivious of the development arguing that he wouldn’t permit that treatment if he’s aware.
