Ms Nelson told KMJ on Daybreak Hitz that the movie does not qualify for a nomination because it is not a Ghanaian production.

“It’s not fair to all of us if they submit that movie because it is not a Ghanaian production. The fact that it was shot in Ghana, doesn’t make it a Ghanaian production. So I won’t agree to that. If we are trying to promote our own, why will we go for a foreign production? You cannot compare a Hollywood production to a Ghanaian movie. The budgets are totally different,” she stated.
