According to the CEO, “We were investing our own money for seven years. I am telling you that our budget is almost about 600,000 to 800,000 cedis anytime we are doing the awards. Nobody knows how we get the awards done. Nobody knows how we flew all those actors from other countries to Ghana. All they know is to criticize but have you asked yourself when you look at the award do you even see one major sponsor?”

The CEO who is also a singer, divulged that, “We did well.  We did great shows, perfect productions. We made sure we did the right things to attract the right productions, still zero. There is just no support when it comes to our industry. As I stand here, I don’t think I am ever going to do Golden Movie Awards again. Because I have invested for seven years, my money is gone. No company is willing to sponsor me.”

Mimi however asserted that, regardless of the lack of sponsorship, the industry stakeholders have been very supportive of her initiative stressing that ‘‘I have one million percent support from the industry. Thousand and billion support. I will not sit on this platform and lie against these directors and producers. They support Golden Movie Awards with their hearts.”
