Film producer Daniel Kwadwo Sarfo of Peace and Love films is to face legal issues after using a house owners property in Kwahu Obomeng to shoot his already released movie Boys Abre which featured Porpor from Nigeria (Nollywood) without the owners knowledge.
Meanwhile Daniel Kwadwo Sarfo has a different story to tell as he is also defending himself that he contacted one Gideon who was acting as the caretaker in the house when he got to Obomeng to shoot the movie, “It’s true I and my Peace and Love production film have been served with a writ of summons, but we don’t understand all these happenings and we think this should not be a media thing. It is something we are trying hard to solve but since they are not being forthcoming with issues], we have also given it to our lawyers to handle it for us” Sarfo told Flex newspaper last Monday.
“The secret is that boss, we did not break into his house to do the shooting there. I and my crew members paid some amount of money to Gideon who was taking care of the house at that time and we even prompted him to inspect the house before we left Obomeng.”
“After the production, my location manager also spent three days there sorting out those we owed. So there was nothing like we used the place and ran away from the house. When we received their first writ of summons, we came to meet their lawyer in Accra (Adabraka) but he will not listen to us. Nana Ama McBrown who was part of the production even followed up to apologize on our behalf and all proved useless so we have handed over the case to our lawyers so we can’t do further commentary” Sarfo noted when he granted an interview to Flex newspaper.
According to Mr. Sarfo, the owner of the house is demanding a whooping GH50,000 from them (Peace and Love ) for compensation but whether they will pay or not is an issue to be resolved by their lawyers.
Meanwhile, Bob who is handling the issue for the house owner who wants to be out of the news has also confirmed the story to Flex newspaper adding that the case is with their lawyers so he will not make further comments.
