Ghana has no movie industry – Actress reveals

Xandy KamelMovies also known as Films are a type of visual communication which use moving pictures and sound to tell a story. Many times such stories needs talented ,versatile and well trained characters or persons to be able to tell a good story ,such persons are know as actors and actresses.

Xandy Kamel belongs to the movie industry, and has her image as a moving picture in the movies we watch now a days, Starring in 5pm, four forty, Destiny, Precious Gold ,The Promise and many others.

The beautiful actress has gained recognition in Ghana and Nigeria. Endowed with lots of talents Xandy Kamel has worked with renowned and celebrated actors ,actresses and musicians such as Kofi Adjorlolo, Nigerian godfather of movies Olu Jacobs , Ghana’s untouchable kwadwo Nkansah Lil Win, Kwaku Manu, Emelia Brobbey, Maame Serwaa, Yvonne Nelson, Nigerian’s music sensation Wizkid among others.

The young, beautiful, talented and versatile Actress Xandy shares her challenges in the Ghanaian movie industry as an actress on the award-winning entertainment show “Storm Entertainment Extra” with Dj Murphy Lee.

“First of all I will start by saying “Ghana has no movie Industry”, its the hard truth but as an actress I must voice it out , its never done anywhere across the world but in Ghana its possible to have Ghallywood, classified by many as an industry for English speaking and Accra based actors and actresses and Kumawood as an industry for Twi speaking and Kumasi based actors and actresses”. She mentioned.

“It saddens my heart to see our neighboring countries chocking success in having one brand for their industry, Nigeria’s Nollywood for example , such well branded industry makes it possible for the government to invest and allows investors into the industry. I believe Ghana will soon have a brand name or movie industries in various regions, “Sunawood” for the people of Brong Ahafo, “Voltawood” , “Northernwood”, she said busting in to laughter.

Respect, unity to mention a few, are factors hindering the progress of the Ghanaian movie industry.

According to her the industry even finds it difficult for its stakeholders to mingle, socialize and share ideas due to the separation and having two industry names in the country.

The actress, yet to receive a breakthrough in the Ghanaian movie industry, disclosed “the Ghanaian movie industry is corrupt”, there are only few producers in Ghana who offer opportunities to young and upcoming actors and actresses. The quest for money turns the minds and eyes of producers away from awarding roles to deserving actors and actresses”.

“Well they say nothing in this world comes easy but I also believe we as individuals can make the world an easy and a better place to be. I have experienced a lot in my acting career which I have learnt from, being patient, learning on the go, tolerating and accepting situations as and when they come are but a few of them”. she concluded
