You may enjoy all the foreign thrillers, action, horror, dramas and comedy movies but there’s nothing better than local Ghanaian movies. So far, our local movies have gained traction on social media than any other.
From Lil Win’s favourite ‘I don’t think far’ phrase to Bismark the Joke’s hysterical comic scenes, the local movie industry has given Ghanaians a great laughter.
We normally enjoy local movies during the weekend due to heavy weekly schedules. On this note, we bring you top 10 Ghanaian movies to enjoy this weekend.
PS: LIST IS IN NO ORDER.

Clad (Elikem Kumodzi) and Clare (Okawa Shazway) were victims of cheaters so they went out of their way to become proud cheaters.
