Concerns regarding the Kumawood film’s collapse have been voiced recently after it was unable to retain its relevance and influence in the nation.
Numerous individuals in the industry have different viewpoints, with some attributing it to subpar content production.
Veteran Ghanaian Kumawood actor Kwaku Manu weighed in on how some people use nefarious strategies to keep others from succeeding in the industry.
He said that certain people who go to fetish priests plan to ruin their successful colleagues’ careers in movies by orchestrating their fall from grace.
In a widely shared video that 1Family Radio saw, the Kumawood actor counseled people who want to pursue acting to pray to God constantly to protect themselves from these kinds of people.
“That is why I tell actors and actresses that if you start acting and decide to follow God, do it perfectly. We have actors, movie stars, and musicians in Ghana who are serious juju. It is like a horse running speedily without a break,’’ he noted.
“They would go to fetish priests and come and claim they were Christians. They would go to church with you on Sundays. There are actors in Kumawood who bury cows.’’
“There was a guy who was trending two years ago, but he is nowhere to be found today because his fame was buried. I always advise people to serve God well to avoid such attacks,’’ he added.
