Kumawood star and comedian, Big Akwes has accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for deceiving players in the Creative Arts Industry.
In an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com on Radio 1, the actor sarcastically thanked the President of Ghana for Lying to the entire Asanteman revealing that Nana Addo promised the entire Asanteman a Film Village prior to the 2016 polls.
According to the actor, the president won the election with the help of some of the Kumawood actors but has since reneged on his promise of providing a Film Village for Kumasi which is the heart of local movie productions.
“Standing in for the entire Asanteman I will say a big thank you the President for deceiving us. During his campaign, he promises a Film Village in Kumasi. That is the reason why the likes of Agya Koo, Matilda Asare and the rest campaigned for him to win the election. All we say is thank you, 2020 is just around the Conner”, he warned.
He added that the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, promised the movie fraternity some acres of land for the film village when decision to build it in Kumasi came up wondering why they was a change in mind to have it constructed in Kyebi which is the hometown of the President..
