Multiple award-winning Nigerian actor, Richard Mofe Damijo, popularly known as RMD has tasked Ghanaian actors and filmmakers to collaborate more in order to catch up with the vibrant Nigerian movie industry.

Ameyaw TV’s Zeinat Issahak caught up with the global icon at the just ended Exclusive Men of the Year (EMY) Awards held in Accra, Ghana and he shared some advice to his Ghanaian colleagues on what must be done to resurrect the Ghanaian movie industry.

Over the last few years, the Ghanaian Movie Industry seems to have come to a stand-still, while the Nigerian Movie Industry has seen a boost with major block-buster movies being produced year-in-year-out.

Explaining why he thinks Ghana is lacking behind, RMD stated that he believes more collaborations between actors and filmmakers will do the trick.

“Maybe, they should collaborate more, not do individual stuff. Come together and promote stuff. So let’s say Lydia Forson is producing her movie, get all the top people to come together, share it, if its a hundred percent, give everybody something, five percent here, ten percent there, and everybody is included. Get a guy who rents equipment, make him a co-owner and just be going because the best way to make movies is to keep going because you never know,” he explained.

According to RMD, filmmakers should not focus on the money aspect, however, they should focus on writing stories that people can relate to universally.

“And it’s not about budget, it’s about how you take a story and make it universal, and we have stories for days. So they should just keep doing, don’t wait for the money, because in Nigeria, we don’t wait for the money. We are dominating YouTube now, people hold their phones and shoot movies so you guys should get your hustle on,” he added.
