President John Dramani Mahama could not hide his happiness after watching two Akan productions on New Year Day.

The first gentleman of the land took to his twitter handle and expressed that he had a nice time watching Broni Hiani which stars Van Vicker, Kwadwo Nkansah (Liwin) among others; Sure Banker which has Nigeria’s John Okafor (Mr. Ibu), Liwin and Agya Koo as part of the cast.

 

It could be recalled that President Mahama in August 2015 praised producers from that part of the country for improving on their productions.

"I watch Ghanaian movies as well as some very good Nigerian movies. I like John Dumelo and Lil Win who will make you laugh so well just as Agya Koo and Kyeiwaa. The likes of Emelia Brobbey, Jackie Appiah and the rest are doing very well… I like some of the films Shirley Frimpong Manso has produced. She is an exceptional producer… When we are traveling we only watch Ghanaian and Nigerian movies on the plane considering that you are travelling for about seven or eight hours so you need something to make you feel relaxed,” the president said on Uniq FM.

Ghana’s culturally dignified city of Kumasi is the home of the Akan movie industry known as Kumawood. Though “Kumawood” is a registered brand of Samdackus Initiatives’ award ceremony - Kumawood and Akoben Movie Awards, it has been used as an industry name for movies from Kumasi.

The sector has received several backlash from a section of the public. They have described films produced from there as substandard.
