Popular actress, Yvonne Nelson has said that the prolonged challenges confronting Ghana movie industry can be largely blamed on lack of unity and jealousy among movie makers and actors.
The actress speaking recently with Sunyani-based Suncity 97.1 Radio on her ban by Film Producers Association of Ghana, FIPAG, in 2010, said the industry, especially English-speaking movies, is currently limping on ‘one leg’ and risks a total collapse.
According to her, those in Ghollywood do not wish each other well but rather look out for negatives to discredit each other to the detriment of the entire industry.
She said, “It looks like there is too much envy in the movie industry. Instead of focusing on building the industry, when something happens and it is negative, they want to capitalise on it.
“It is like everybody wants to suck your blood out. When something is negative then they are happy. It saddens me and that is why we are where we are now. The movie industry is like on one leg. A year will come that we will shoot only two English movies,” she lamented.
“It is because of jealousy. It is that attitude that when someone does something, they say that that person is being too known. We are not united.”
Speaking further, the model said, “Nigerians actually look at us and laugh. They ask questions like, ‘what are these people doing?’ And it’s because we are not united,” she added.
