Award-winning Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie has responded to Samini’s claims about his behaviour concerning request for features.

According to Sarkodie, he does not agree with everything Samini has said about him, but he’s sorry he feels that way.

In an interview on Hitz FM on Tuesday, January 24, Sarkodie stated;

“If you call me and I tell you to take your time, you don’t understand. But it’s all good, him feeling like that I don’t have any control over that, but I can only say sorry to how he feels not necessarily because I agree with everything he is saying but that’s how he feels, my mind is really not on the things he is talking about and to make some things clear, I said it in the beginning I treat things differently from how people will treat things…”

Sarkodie, who has made another career milestone with a feature on a Bob Marley classic, “Stir It Up” added;

“…I wont call it pain because I don’t really care because that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen to you, everybody has something happening to them so I get it. He has expressed, if you want to take people to court and say Sarkodie does things for me quick, you will have a thousand people who will also say it, some people will also say, I don’t do things quickly, you understand, I told Bulldog, I just recorded not because the music is not good, you could hear a song that is so good but maybe you don’t hear yourself and you are trying to find the pocket in the song and one day you do it and some songs they send to you like 2 seconds, probably, if I send you a song and you really loved it  that moment, you did it. I didn’t figure it out, I’m not talking about him, it could happen as in general so to my brother I’ll just definitely say sorry for how he feels, not endorsing the fact that everything he is saying is what I believe in and think it’s the truth but if he says he feels like that then I am sorry.”

Background:

On Monday, January 23, a Twitter user had asked Samini if there was ever a chance of him hitting the studio with Sarkodie again.

The question from the fan was met with a rather vehement answer from Samini who stated that there was zero chance of that ever happening again.

According to Samini, he’s not going to be put in the position of asking for a verse from Sarkodie, and even if Sarkodie asks him for a verse, he’s not interested.

Samini explained his reason stating that Sarkodie is not a straight shooter and will keep people who asks for his services waiting till they burn out.

“Not sure I’ll need a verse from sark but if he ever does need one I’m not interested and that’s facts. He knows this himself. 😂😂😂. )y3 Alo sometimes and I don’t play that. Yes or no be problem for am so e go slow you and your project go dull …, he did it to me on burning EP,” Samini tweeted.

Explaining further, Samini stated that he has nothing against Sarkodie, however, he does expect an apology from him for not responding to his messages and keeping him waiting.

“I got nothing against sarkodie and he knows it. He also knows that he Dey owe me personal apology for the blue ticks after having me send 3 tracks and he choosing 1. After asking me if it was a single or an album to which I answered it’s an EP.He’s like coo he’s yet to respond,” Samini added.

Showmax calls for pitches for 10 live action films from first-time African filmmakers

Published

On the opening day of The Joburg Film Festival, Showmax released an open commissioning brief to the African film industry calling for pitches for a slate of 10 live action films.
The African streamer has won the South African Film and Television Awards’ Made-for-TV Movie Award for two years in a row, first with Loving Thokoza and then with Boxing Day, the first two feature films from Mandla N. In addition, another Showmax film, Kelsey Egan’s debut feature, Glasshouse, was the most awarded feature film overall at the SAFTAs last year, with five Golden Horns.
The new brief, in partnership with the Joburg Film Festival, is aimed at finding new talent and opening up the industry. The proposals must have a first draft screenplay and be set in contemporary Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria or South Africa, with a first-time director attached who is a resident or citizen in those countries. All official Ghanaian, Kenyan, Nigerian and South African languages are welcome and the final films should be more than 40m, in line with the SAFTAs Best Made-for-TV Movie Award category.
“Showmax’s audience prefers local content, with seven of the ten most streamed titles in South Africa, eight of the top 10 titles in Kenya and Nigeria, and nine of the top 10 in Ghana last year being African,” says Yolisa Phahle, CEO of Showmax and Connected Video at MultiChoice. “Making your first film is a key turning point in any director’s career. So this brief is another way we are trying to empower local filmmakers to tell their own stories for their own communities in their own languages. We’re looking for authentic stories that will resonate with our local audiences. Popular genres like romcoms, family dramas and thrillers are always welcome.”
Submissions are now open on https://submissions.mnetcorporate.co.za/channel/showmax; entries close on 1 April 2023. The selected projects will be announced in the second half of 2023 and screened on Showmax in 50 countries across sub-Saharan Africa in 2024.
Pitches should take the form of a video pitch in English of no more than five minutes. This video pitch should include short bios of the writer, director and producer; a concise summary of the story, including the ending; an introduction to your lead characters; and a discussion of your chosen genre and stylistic approach, with visual references.

Idris Elba attends Akwasidae in Asante Kingdom

Idris Elba attends Akwasidae in Asante Kingdom

British actor of Ghanaian and Senegalese heritage, Idris Elba has paid homage to the Ashanti King, Otumfour Osei Tutu II as he attended Akwasidae at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.

The Akwasidae Festival is celebrated by the Ashanti people and chiefs in Ashanti, as well as the Ashanti diaspora. The festival is celebrated on a Sunday, once every six weeks.

Earlier in the week, Elba revealed that he and his partners have undertaken some groundwork aimed at facilitating the building of a film studio in Ghana and across West Africa.

Speaking to President Akufo-Addo during a visit to the Jubilee House, the actor explained that although so much can be achieved in the film industry in Africa, facilities are lacking.

Hence, Idris Elba is convinced that the project, when completed, will be robust and competitive to attract filmmakers to choose Ghana for their productions.

“Currently, we call it West African Studios, but that’s a working title. We’ve been working on this for three or four years to raise a plan that puts a facility at the centre of African filmmaking. There’s a lot for African filmmaking, but the facilities are lacking.”

Idris Elba added that although their plans are in place, they believe that there needs to be policies that would encourage filmmakers to make the trip to Ghana and other West African countries.

He stated that in their preparations and research, they put together the parameters for the policy, adding that they sought to understand what international filmmakers need from Ghana.

The ‘Beast of No Nation’ actor stated that without the policy framework, the country can have as many film studios as possible, but it will not attract filmmakers.

“We realized that policy is where the actual groundwork needs to be laid. We’ve studied the models of South Africa, incredible incentive packages, Greece, Morocco and these are all places where they realize the value of the filmmaking and they’ve brought that policy into play.”

“National Film Authority has done the work and put together a very comprehensive plan to propel Ghana into the forefront. It needs to be robust and competitive to the rest of the world. We believe for sure that Ghana should step up in terms of attracting those filmmakers. I’ve come and seen you and presented to you essentially, just the parameters of what we need to do.”

President Akufo-Addo assured Idris Elba that the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture is developing a policy framework to guide filmmaking in the country.

He advised that the director of the Creative Arts Agency will liaise with the Tourism Minister to look through the proposal presented, in relation to what the Ministry is doing to ensure there are no gaps.

He stated that this will ensure the film industry has a comprehensive document that guides their activities.
