A three-member revolutionary team stationed in the United States led by His Eminence Nana Dakrabo I am in the country to finalize the purchase of 321 acres designated for a contemporary film studio.
The project is anticipated to begin next year at Asebu, Cape Coast, Central Region, barring any unforeseen complications.
Tuesday, Nana Dakrabo I and his team – His Noble Lord Jim Larucci, World Diplomatic Federation’s Provost Commissioner for Europe, and His Rt. Noble Lord Richard Flynn, World Diplomatic Federation’s Provost Commissioner for the United States – paid a courtesy call on Deputy Tourism Minister Mr Mark Okraku Mantey in his office in Accra.
Nana Dakrabo I, the Mpuntuhene (head of development), informed the Minister, “…this is to inspire the arts so that we can compete globally; it will allow us to shoot globally and enhance the quality of our work.”
The World Diplomatic Federation’s worldwide commissioner for economic alliances and investments stated, “For far too long, we have been underrepresented.
This will be the very first studio project in Africa. So that we may compete on the global stage. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance.
The Minister informed the group that “You have arrived at the appropriate time; Nana Addo is confident in his abilities, and Ghana has a great deal of them. You have arrived at a moment when the market in Africa is prepared.” Thank you for selecting Ghana. Here, talent abounds.
My Minister Awal Mohammed will ensure that you succeed in generating profits and paying taxes so that Ghana can emerge victorious. Ghana is in fact ready.
“My minister has stated that he wants the arts and culture to be the largest contributor to GDP. We realized, as a capitalist government (NPP), that the private sector has a significant stake in nation development.
We must construct something jointly as a group. By the end of this year, small theaters will be scattered across the nation.
“Let’s support this project since it will create jobs. Ghana is all set Actor and… Ken Fiati, president of Created Arts Ghana Incorporated (CAGI), who stood in for facilitator Kassoum Sinari, stated, “For us, it is a privilege to be a part of history-making.”
World Diplomatic Federation Communication strategist, His Viscount Lord Mr Isaac Rockson, Superintendent General of World Diplomatic Federation, who led the team and was an important stakeholder, asked everyone to support the project.
Today in Cape Coast, the team paid a courtesy visit to the Central Regional Minister and Nana Obokese Ampah I Apagyahen of the Asebu Traditional Area in order to finalize paperwork and other formalities.
