An executive member of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) has said the era of showing telenovelas each day on the local television stations will soon come to an end.

The Telenovelas in Ghana came with a huge gesture that swept everyone across the country; parents and children; everyone fell in love with it.

Mr Paul Agyei  (Paul Gee), an executive member of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG), has said the association is in talks with the government of Ghana to regulate foreign soap operas.

In an interview with Ashh FM Entertainment-Zone last Sunday, Paul Gee revealed that the association has had a considerable discussion with the government and very soon a regulation will come out from the Information and Arts ministries directing TV stations to air telenovelas twice a week.

Paul Gee stressed that, one of their major concerns was with regards to the patronage of Mexican and other foreign telenovelas on the various Television networks by a majority of Ghanaians to the neglect of the local movies.

According to him, when this law is enforced it will minimize the rate at which telenovelas are shown on the local television stations.
