Producers Have Stopped Calling Me For Movies – John Dumelo

Leave a comment

Actor John Dumelo in about five months has not stepped a foot in the Capital Accra, Ghana.

He’s been in Dubai, Canada, Uk, Amsterdam and other places making appearances at events and as well enjoying some holidays in those periods.

His last time pictured on set in Ghana, witnessed an alleged sextape between himself and actress Christabel Ekeh which got Ghanaians fuming.

From observation,for sometime now, the actor spends much more time outside his homeland which in most cases affect the consistency in the movie industry but in John’s case it hasn’t.

In an interview, John Dumelo was asked why he doesn’t like to stay in Ghana and the award-winning actor was quick to respond:

“Well, I know, but the likes of Abdul Sallam Mumuni and other movie producers have refused to cast me in recent times for one reason or the other, I can’t really tell why”.

It could be the fact that, these famous actors are a lot more expensive now and producers do not get their moneys worth from the cinema premieres and selling of television rights when they pay huge sums for artists.

When asked if John will be leaving anytime soon, he said:

I’m here to stay, i have work and other projects coming up so i’m definitely not looking at leaving soon.I’m here for now.

Well, only time will tell.On Sunday, John Dumelo was last pictured in the Volta Region at the Catholic church,as to what he’s working on, its still unclear.

There have been numerous concerns about the movie industry; actors, actresses as well as some directors have come out to voice out, about the worrying nature of the Ghana Movie industry which has resulted in actors and actresses such as Yvonne Nelson, Kafui Danku, Juliet Ibrahim, Prince David Osei, Eddie Nartey and more producing their own movies.

Beverly Afaglo being the latest to raise such concerns has revealed her intentions of joining the Kumasi Platforms(Kumawood) because the Movie Industry here in Accra is dying.
