Ghana’s Movie Industry Has A Long Way To Go – Lydia Forson

Outspoken Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has said Ghana’s movie industry has a long way to go due to funding constraints from individuals who believe in film and the government.

The awards-winning actress in an interview with BBC  said;

“Every industry go through its phase. Where we are now is not the best but I compare to where we were several years ago and I still believe it is better because, several years ago, actors were not making the kind of money we do, actors were not making endorsement.

It was still seen as a hobby. Could we be doing better much more, I still believe that we have a long way to go. Although it is struggling, I would not say it has collapsed”.

She added; “Our biggest challenge has always been funding. A lot of films in Ghana, although they are seen all over the world, 99.9 percent are from personal funds and passionate individuals who believe in the film that we don’t have any real places that we can go and say listen, this is where we get our money from, not even from banks.”

Miss Forson further noted that most corporate entities do not invest in film and this problem

of funding she believes cuts across movie industries in Africa, of which Ghana is of no exception.


According to her, though the NPP government is currently pushing the creative arts agenda, the team still go through the traditional process of seeking for sponsorship because of the ‘attitude of politicians’.

“Over the years, we sort for these funds ourselves. But this year, with the current government pushing the creative arts agenda, I was determined to make a statement but a lot of times, there’s what politicians say and there’s what they do. So we decided to go through the right process where we send letters and all of that”, she stated.

Aside lack of funds for the industry, Lydia Forson also revealed lack of respect for the industry

as one of the major challenge of the movie industry.

“There’s a huge challenge when it comes to funding and at this core, I think the biggest problem is lack of respect for the industry” she said.

Nana Addo’s Government Not Living Up To Expectation – Lydia Forson

Outspoken actress Lydia Forson has shared her views on the current state of Ghana’s economy.

The actress has disclosed that she is not impressed with the general performance of the current government.

According to the multiple awards-winning actress, the government led by President

Nana Akufo-Addo, has failed to deliver on its promises.

When host of Hall of Fame on Citi TV, AJ Sarpong asked if the government ticks all her boxes,

she answered in the negative.

“No, absolutely not,” she said.

Expatiating her reasons however she noted;“you know when they won the election I wrote a piece, it was supposed to feature in the New African Woman. I said that you know what, they were setting themselves up for failure.”

According to Lydia, she refuses to completely discredit the President or completely give

up because if Ghana does well it benefits everybody.

However, she thinks the government was arrogant about their promises prior the the 2016 elections.

“My article was based on their social media promises. They wanted to win by any means necessary. But I think when you have been in opposition for a very long time you forget what is like to be the head that wears the crown. So maybe any other party government may not be frustrated as we are. Maybe things take time to pick up,” she told AJ.

“But because of all the promises they made and the boldness with which they made them. They were almost arrogant about their promises,” she intimated.

Miss Forson finally noted that the New Patriotic Party (NPP)probably were doing old

school politics during the 2016 elections.

She said even though she was not surprised at the turn of events she is expecting that the

government does exactly what it promises with the timeliness.

While some admire her confidence and intelligence, there are others who seriously resent

her approach and reaction to certain issues.

Her first movie role was a cameo in Hotel St. James in 2005.

Lack Of Assertiveness Killing Ghanaians – Lydia Forson

Outspoken actress, Lydia Forson is in the news again over her latest observation about

Ghanaians which she did not hesitate to share.

She revealed her observations as to why development in Ghana has been stalled though a post on twitter.

According to her, the Ghanaian culture and how mothers nurture their children

is a prime factor in Ghana’s very slow development.

According to her,  the religious up-bringing of Ghanaian children from childhood makes them

“…scared to stand up for ourselves when we’re wronged…”

She labelled it as the “Fa Ma Nyame” attitude, a Twi expression which translates loosely as “Give it to God.”


She however stressed that this attitude is the reason most people fail to speak up when

they have to, thereby allowing others to take advantage of them.

The post read:

“This , “ fa ma nyame“, attitude that we’ve been taught since childhood is why we continue to suffer as a nation. 

We’re so scared to stand up for ourselves when we’re wronged, and trust me people depend on you to” fa ma nyame” so they can take advantage of you,” she tweeted.

Lydia Forson Advocates For Dancing Space For VGMA Audience

We all know how heartbreaking it is when one does something and is not appreciated in return.

Imagine you being an artiste who’s performing to a large crowd, yet no one is cheering at you.

Very disappointing right? You may begin to wonder if you’re even doing the right thing.

Well, outspoken actress, Lydia Forson has putting herself in the shoes of artistes and is advocating for some space for fans to ‘boogy’.

The ‘sidechic Gang’ actress has expressed her disgust at the fact that people go for an event like VGMA and sit unconcerned when they could dance or cheer when someone is performing.

Over the years, patrons of VGMA especially people in the VIP section fail to cheer or dance while artistes perform on stage.

Of course, this is bound to frustrate artistes who may think they’re not able to move the crowd.

But Miss Forson is not in support of that. She cannot understand how people will attend a musical show and yet remain seated or idle when an artiste is performing.

She however believes that the space allocated for audience is not big enough for one to even stand and dance to cheer his/her artiste.

“I really don’t get why people go to shows like this and sit down when an artist is performing”. She tweeted.

She advocated that “They need to include a corner by the stage for fans to jam it out like they do at other international shows”.

After few exposè, their Sidechic Gang becomes popular, attracting traffic from victims of side chicks. This translates into more cash for them. Meanwhile, the men in the town are unhappy with the sudden popularity of the gang.

The Sidechic Gang’s biggest deal is yet to hit them. It comes from a filthy rich man who suspects his fiancée is cheating on him. He is aware the gang does not serve men, but, he is willing to pay anything it costs to justify his suspicion. The gang takes on the task. They know what this means for their bank account. Their greatest opposition, however, is the many aggrieved men who benefit from the services of side chicks, and would do anything to ensure they fail.
