The Ghanaian film industry, which was once thriving, has struggled to recapture its former glory despite discussions with several players.
Amidst the difficulties, actress and film producer Yvonne Nelson is confident that she is doing her part to grow the industry and improve things. The actress expressed her dissatisfaction on 3Music TV's Culture Daily saying she still has the desire to work in the profession regardless of the circumstances.
“It’s obvious the industry is not as vibrant as before and I’m just sick and tired of talking about the subject. I’m doing my part. For me, it’s a business; of course, I have the passion. I just cannot see myself not producing anymore. I believe I’m going to be around for a long time,” she revealed.
Yvonne Nelson hopes that her colleagues will contribute and take an active role in the production process. In her opinion, they have given up.
“My colleagues and I have to invest. We have to invest in the industry. If we don’t then we don’t expect an outsider to invest. We know it. This is what we do. So I was expecting to see John Dumelo start directing. I’m always bugging Majeed to direct. It’s us really. I feel like we’ve easily given up and so things are the way they are. So we have to sit and do something about it.”
On February 14th, the actor will premier her newest work, 'KOTOKA.'
