Buzzing Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Okoro has urged Ghanaians to stop labelling Kumawood movies as ‘bad’ indicating how much she enjoys watching such movies.
In a recent interview, Yvonne Okoro stated that Kumawood movies are entertaining and funny and it is also full of life lessons stating that although it is mostly comedy, there is a lot to learn from it and I enjoy watching it.
Yvonne Okoro backed her claim by recounting how she was entertained by Agya Koo’s movies while in France.
“The time I was in France, it was Agya Koo who was always keeping me company. I used to watch his movies a lot because it is entertaining and interesting,” she said.
Yvonne Okoro also mentioned that there some worrying issues really facing the Ghanaian movie industry which really needs to be addressed.
In her view, one of the major issues affecting the Industry is lack of support explaining that we tend to look down on African movies and end up hailing the foreign movies.
“My problem with Africans is we think that everything black is substandard. Someone will just say your movies are not good yet they have not even seen it. They just follow what others are saying…Others too just saw one movie and it wasn’t good for them but then you can’t tell me that all Hollywood movies are good. Some are complete rubbish. So you can’t use one African movie to judge all the others. If change will come, it will come from you. Change your mindset,” she added.
