Creating a “Walk of Fame” for film stars in Ghana is vanity – Leila Djansi lists things more important

Ghanaian movie director, Leila Djansi has reacted to calls by organizers of the Golden Movie Awards and some film stars for the creation of a Hollywood-like “Walk Of Fame” in Ghana to serve as a tourist attraction.

Give us space to create a “Walk Of Fame” for our movie stars – Golden Movie Awards organizers to gov’t

Reacting to the above story on Facebook, Leila wrote

The ‘Sinking Sands’ director later took to her social media page to express her opinion. She wrote:

“Ghana actors say they want what? Avenue of the stars? For what legendary performance or what legendary movie that the world talked about? Created with what funds the industry generated for the national economy? Y’all made more money for Gucci, Dolce, Delta Airlines, Emirates and Dubai.
No? Y’all want government to fund a walk of stars so folks pay to take photos with/on your stars? Please, who, outside of your kinsmen, know you? When Samuel Jackson came to Ghana, everyone heard. I ain’t ever heard any media discussing when y’all come here to Amerika? Am I missing something?
Walk of Stars?
Ahhh? Whiles kids are dying for lack of healthcare? A country with jobless youths milling about? Whiles little kids hawk on the streets? Erratic power supply? Poor educational structures? Corrupt politicians? Superficial much? If you want to copy Hollywood so bad, why not copy their discipline, strategy, unity, infrastructure, and economy?
May God himself forgive your vanity.
#PediatricOncologyUnit is what Ghana needs.”
