The call for government support for the creative arts industry will get louder and louder until a government decides to listen.
Celebrated and award winning media personality, Nana Aba Anamoah has amplified that call by advising government to deliberately bring up a policy aimed at pushing women in the arts industry to navigate their way through the challenges they face.
Using the year of return as an example, Nana Aba was baffled as to how a movie or something of a sort has not been produced to tell the story better. “We are here and we keep hearing year of return but we have seen nothing. The government could have given some funds to Yvonne to produce a movie about the returnees. So far we’ve seen nothing and we’ve heard nothing. So year of return, year of return, what are we really returning to?” She rhetorically asked as she ended.
Nana Aba Anamoah was speaking as part of a three member panel which included American singer, Deborah Cox and Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson in a media briefing event yesterday, 2nd August, 2019 towards the Ghana World Music Festival which comes off this weekend at the Fantasy Dome, Trade fair – Accra.
