Actress Martha Ankomah has called on Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko and other investors to help revive the ailing movie industry.
According to her, many movie personalities, act for free or for peanuts just to keep the industry afloat.
Martha who is the brand ambassador for GLO says the luxury displayed by most of her colleagues on social media should not be mistaken as the reality because many of them are living in penury.
Martha expressed her disappointment in a comment Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko made that he is disappointed in Ghanaian movies.
“I feel very bad but also very disappointed in what Gabby said. I’ll be so glad if Gabby can actually talk to the people who are investing to come to invest in our movie industry,” she said in an interview on Accra based TV station.
“You and I know things are not okay with us. It is just social media hype. It is just trying to feel significant in public. You know I won’t lie, there’s nothing happening so I’m begging you, movie industry, we really need help, we really need investors what you see on Instagram and Facebook is not real,” she said.
