Ghana Movie Industry Not Dead – Lil Win Affirms



Iconic Kumawood actor Kwadwo Nkansah, known in the Ghanaian movie scene as Lilwin, has posited that the Ghanaian movie industry is not as dead as perceived by many Ghanaians.

Lil Win made this disclosure during the media launch of his highly anticipated Mr. President movie, a yet-to-be premiered which is scheduled to premiere on Saturday, August 26, 2023, at the Royal View Cinema, SG Mall in Kumasi.

According to the super talented Ghanaian comic actor, the Ghanaian movie industry that is on the verge of collapse needs a special ministry or commission structured for it, so that it can find means of reviving the industry.

He stated that what Ghana’s movie Industry needs right now is a comprehensive film policy or a film commission to look closely at the film industry again.

Lil Win further stated that there is no way a ministry can cater for tourism, culture, and the arts industry, and hence pleaded while saying that they have a full Ministry of Creative Arts.

He added that the state of the Ghana Film Industry is dire stressing that he has sat back and watched keenly the semblance of a revival taking place in the industry, and doff his hat to all the various actors and actresses, especially the Kumasi-based ones, for keeping the film industry up and running.

When asked what inspired the production of the Mr. President Movie, the hilarious Ghanaian actor made it clear that he wanted to invest in his own craft since the movie industry now lacks the funds to do so.
