Managing Director of TV Africa and actor, Ekow Blankson has unequivocally described the current crop of actors as jokers.

Ekow Blankson in an interview with SVTV mentioned that these actors are not interesting to watch compared to his time.

“I think that our new crop of actors are just jokers. Unfortunately, they aren’t as exciting and real as people have done in the past. Sometimes it gets a bit worrying watching them perform,” he said.

Commenting on movies produced in Kumasi often referred to as ‘Kumawood’, the ace actor stated that the sector has adopted the ‘concert party’ style where actors are not guided by scripts.

“I think the Kumasi movie industry is a different form of filmmaking. It’s actually concert party where you don’t prepare a script and follow. They are given pointers and they have to create out of it and that is the concert party style and they have enhanced it into the film,” he said.
