Celebrities are running into politics because of hunger – Kwaku Manu



Kumawood actor, Kwaku Manu believes celebrities who have joined the political landscape are only doing so because they are “hungry.”

According to him, these celebrities have no desire to serve the people, but are only there to reap the financial benefits.

Speaking on the UTV’s ‘United Showbiz’ show, the actor cum presenter stated that the vast number of celebrities have realized that there is money to be made in the world of politics, hence their decision to get involved.


“Celebrities are hungry and it is the main reason some of us are going into politics. There’s nothing happening for us at the moment and I think it’s about time the government came to our rescue. Both the NPP and NDC governments made huge promises but nothing is happening.

“How are we supposed to have better lives when our leaders don’t think about us but themselves. Here in Ghana, our leaders are always enriching themselves, their friends and families and not thinking about the ordinary citizens and it is quite a sad development,” he stated.

According to Kwaku, the performance of the Minister of Tourism has been underwhelming, as he has neglected the creative industry. .


“I don’t even know the Minister of Tourism because I don’t know what he has done for the industry.

“Ask most celebrities who the Minister of Tourism is and I can tell you about 90 percent will fail the test. It is obvious we have been neglected because nothing is happening,” he said.
