Popular Ghanaian actress, entrepreneur cum TV presenter, Gloria Osei Sarfo is waded into the debate on how to get the Ghanaian movie industry up and running.
According to the renowned actress, the only way to get rid of telenovelas is good local content on television is to produce good local content.
“I will be glad if they go away because that is what the movie lovers are talking about. I will be glad as a Ghanaian actor when that is done, but then I am looking at the content we produce; we need good content on TV and I think that can solve the problem.
We should think about replacing them with content that is fulfilling and will be interesting to watch. That is what we can do as producers and directors; however, there is what the bigger bodies like the government are supposed to do to curb the situation and I pray in due time, they attend to it.
Honestly, if you ask me, I was one of the advocates against telenovelas which I always talk about on my social media handle, but this came as a good tiding and I had to grab it. I saw it as God’s blessings and I didn’t have to let it go like that,” she said.
