Ken Fiati, the Head of Technical Committee of the Ghana’s Actors Guild, has said he won’t go near events like the Ghana Movie Awards that has it’s red carpet longer than the event itself.
Ken, who joined the conversation on Zylofon FM’s Showbiz Agenda on Wednesday on how the movie industry fared in 2018 with emphasis on the 2018 Ghana Movie Awards which was poorly organized according to the host of the show and the other panelists, answered he was okay especially when he opted not go near some events.
Ken further said he really respects Fred Nuamah, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ghana Movie Awards but he wasn’t going to be at an event that wasn’t well organized. According to Ken, he wasn’t asked to contribute as compared to that of Zylofon Ghana Film Awards.
Ken Fiati later added that, Fred keeps getting this bashing for getting things wrong because he’s being working on this Ghana Movie Awards for about eight years but not ready to listen to advice from other people.
Kalybos, one of the MC for the Ghana Movie Awards (GMA), 2018, also confirmed on the show that Fred really doesn’t listen to advice and that’s what caused the floppy nature of the event. He also revealed that DSTV was supposed to telecast the show live but due to delay in proceedings they couldn’t show the event.
Sammy Flex, the host of the show – Showbiz Agenda, also revealed to consolidate the fact that Fred is not willing to listen to advice, said when Zylofon Media couldn’t organize the 2017 edition and was also not in the position to organize that of the 2018, Fred Nuamah against the advice of Zylofon Media went ahead to organize it.
The Ghana Movie Awards (GMA) 2018 edition, MC’ed by Kalybos and James Gardiner, took place on Sunday, December 30 at the Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.
Its first edition was held on December 25, 2010, at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) and subsequently, the date was changed due to conflict with other events in December after the event was put on hold after the 2016 event when Zylofon Media took over in 2017.
The 2018 Ghana Movie Award Winners and Category list are yet to be published after the event.
