Ghanaian actress Roselyn Ngissah has called on the management of television stations in Ghana to commence producing their own local series.
According to the ‘Amakye and Dede’ actress, this will help the country’s struggling movie industry since the current state of the industry is having an effect on actors.
Speaking at a press screening of an upcoming movie ‘Adam the eve’ the 4play actress said “TV stations, instead of using their money to buy whatever foreign content, can produce their own series and movies. It will even be competitive and it will give us a lot of jobs as artists.”
“I think we should concentrate on the mode of distribution-marketing. I think that is the major problem aside from the influx of foreign content on our TV stations. I think it should be balanced. It shouldn’t be the 80 percent foreign content and 20 percent local content we have been seeing.”
The Adams apple actress added “If we have 70 percent Ghanaian content then we will have lots and lots of productions springing up. Then there will also be competition because TV stations won’t just go for just anything and then where there is competition, the best of the product comes out.
“Even the TV stations instead of using their money to buy whatever foreign content can produce their own series and movies. It will even be competitive and it will give us a lot of jobs as artistes,” she stressed.
