William addoVeteran actor, William Addo has revealed that he need GHC 5,000 for a surgery on the eye. The 66-year old actors said on  Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz on Wednesday, that he had been diagnosed of glaucoma and feared he would go blind if unable to raise the amount needed for surgery. 

“I have to do a surgery on my eye. My vision is very blur. Doctors diagnosed that it is a combination of glaucoma and cataract and I need to be operated upon otherwise it’s going to cause a fracture,” he told host, KMJ.

According to Mr Addo, he has sent letters to some institutions but has not heard any positive response from those quarters. He however, mentioned that Kwame Sefa Kayi has given him an amount but will not disclose how much since he does not have the broadcaster’s permission to.

“So far, it’s only Kwame Sefa Kayi who has given me something… I have sent copies of the appeal to Cultural Forum, Ghana Actors Guild, Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts and others but I’m yet to hear from them. That was before the advent of Easter,” he said.

Asked about how he feels having hit by such a situation, coupled with the not-so-positive response, Mr Addo’s reply was full of regrets.

“It’s unfortunate. I have served this country faithfully. I was at the School of Performing Arts, we had a scholarship to go abroad for training. Out of ten, only two of us came back because I thought I owed my country a lot. Sometimes, I ask if I made the correct decision. I’m a pensioner who took GHC 3,000 as end of service benefit after serving for thirty years. Sometimes I wonder whether we are living in a country taking notice of your contribution” he noted.

William Addo before appearing in a number of Ghanaian movies was a stage actor. He studied at the University of Ghana’s School of Performing Arts and was retained as a teaching assistant at the school after he graduated. He later had a scholarship to do his masters abroad and came back as a lecturer in charge of acting at the institution. After some time, he was sent to the National Theatre where he was in charge of concert party productions.

The premiere of the most anticipated Ghanaian crime action thriller; The Agency, postponed to December 2

Published

on

The Agency3

We wish to officially announce that Ghana’s most anticipated crime action thriller, The Agency, initially scheduled to premiere on October 1, 2022, has been postponed to December 2, 2022.

This difficult decision became necessary due to some challenges, including a planned renovation by Silverbird Cinemas, commencing two days after the premiere of The Agency movie and lasting about a week. Meaning that subsequent showings of The Agency in the cinema would have to be suspended for the entire duration of the renovation. From a business perspective, this is not prudent as a break in screening would water down the impact we anticipate audience reviews after the premiere will make, while potentially affecting revenue as well. Hence, the need to postpone to a more suitable date.

In considering suitable dates, we had to ensure that the new date was not set too close to or on the same day as any major local or international event and or movie releases. This is also important because it can adversely affect our premiere. After extensive consultations and careful consideration, it became clear that The Agency should premiere in December.

Coincidentally, the National Film Authority called on Cine-God Studios to discuss the Ghana Cinema Week slated for December 2022. The ten (10) day event seeks to revive the Ghanaian cinema culture by encouraging Ghanaians to watch Ghanaian films at various venues across the country. By supporting and participating in this initiative, we get a golden opportunity to access more screens; which means we get to bring the The Agency movie closer to more film lovers across Ghana faster than we initially scheduled.

In all, we believe that this postponement provides an opportunity for us to entertain film lovers without compromising on returns for our investor; a win-win situation.

The Agency is a crime-action thriller movie which tells the story of a very powerful government security agency, which was formed to handle the government’s top-secret operations but which gets corrupted under the leadership of a highly connected female government appointee who uses the agency for back-door business dealings, hence, causing the emergence of a group of highly skilled individuals to embark on a self-sanctioned perilous mission to end the corruption and abuse. It was Executive produced by Amin Ramart and directed by Abu Iddris.

We therefore take the opportunity to apologize for any inconveniences caused and encourage the public to turn out in their numbers on December 2, 2022 for the premiere at Silverbird Cinemas (Accra Mall and West Hills mall) and subsequent showings at venues near them.
