Ohhh am so happy about this news, i hope Kwaw and Shirley and all our best directors and producers come out and ran these other illiterate fools (giving ghana movie industry a bad name) - out of business.

.

Welcome back the true legends and true professionals to really show the world what Ghana has to offer - the best of the best, with excellent scripts and production which does not need foreign names like Beyonce, Tyra, Rihanna nor soft porn scenes in their movies - to be successful. I prayed that uncle Kwaw comes back and i am glad he is. Ghana government should support movie makers of such - their movies can easily make it to sundance.
