Popular Film makers based in the Ashanti Region joined forces with Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG), to demonstrate against the influx of telenovelas that are aired daily on the local television channels.
The stakeholders in the movie industry on Thursday, 14 September 2017 walked through the principal streets of Kumasi to register their displeasure over the upsurge of telenovelas.
According to FIPAG PRO, the regular showing of foreign telenovelas that are translated in Twi for local audience is negatively affecting the film industry in Ghana.
She added that the influx of these foreign soaps take business away from the film industry, as they have captured the interest of the audience and has left no room for the local movies to be patronised.
Actors Lil Win, Akrobeto, Vivian Jill Lawrence, Wayoosi and many others joined the ‘Red’ demonstration against telenovelas in the country.
