FIPAG Concerns Will Be Addressed – Otumfuo
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has assured the leadership of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) that their concerns over telenovelas will be addressed.
Otumfuo said this when FIPAG petitioned him as part of their demonstration against telenovelas in Ghana, which they say is collapsing the local movie industry.
The association wants parliament to pass the Legislative Instrument regarding the Film Act and also, the broadcasting bill which will restrict the nation’s televisions from airing telenovelas.
Otumfuo who received their petition, asked the heads of clans, after noting the concerns of the Association, to meet again with the leadership of FIPAG and the Minister of Tourism and Creative Art on the issue and bring the outcome to him for an action to be taken upon.
