I get more movie roles despite crisis in industry – Adjetey Anang

Actor Adjetey Anang says in spite of the many challenges facing the local movie industry, he still gets more movie roles.

Speaking Monday in an interview with Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, the actor, who is known by his movie name, ‘Pusher’ in the famous television series ‘Things We Do For Love’, admitted that the industry is having some tough times.

He noted that due to these difficulties, the number of movies currently produced in Ghana has reduced drastically.

“When you check out the statistics, the number of movies churned out in a month has gone down. Most producers have slowed down and are producing less or not producing at all. From that angle you can say that the film industry has taken a nose dive…,” the actor said.

 

Even though Adjetey Anang affirmed the assertion by his colleagues that things were not going well in the industry, he noted that in spite of all these problems, he has landed about nine movies roles this year.

“…In every business, there are ups and downs and we go through those phases every now and then. What we do when things are bad is what will make us sustainable during hard times. Surprisingly it’s been the time where I have done my most works. I used to do three or four movies a year but from January this year I’ve done about nine movies…,” he said.

 

Adjetey Anang, who won Best Actor in a Drama Series in the 2018 edition of Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Award (AMVCA) for the movie ‘Keteke’, noted that the industry needs to be considered as a business for it to grow.

He noted that construction of cinemas in other parts of the country will play a huge role in revamping the collapsed industry.

“…I think we are not seeing it as a business entity. There is still a market out there which wants to see Ghanaian movies. If the government can revive these cinemas I think it will help…,” he told Andy Dosty

Adjetey Anang has featured in movies such as ‘Deadly Voyage’, ‘A Sting in a Tale’, and ‘The Perfect Picture’.
