2013 Ghana Movie Awards: How not to organize a show

The Accra International Conference Center, the

usual venue for the well talked about Ghana

Movie Awards for four consecutive years, has

played host to the gathering of crème de la

crème in Ghana entertainment industry.

The GHANA MOVIE AWARDS has -no doubt-

grown to become a glittering concept, and

because it's portray Ghana entertainment in a

good light, many has therefore come to respect

it, in and outside Ghana.

Though Ghana movie awards has come and gone,

there are still flaws that it left in it audience

heart issues such as 'African time'.

This year the show had another turn of beautiful

faces; it featured arch-rivals in the movie

industry come face-to-face.

Hogan, the comedian did a great job by

cracking ribs with his authentic jokes.

The MCs on the night didn't get it all though

there were lapses but it can get better, hopefully

next year.

The stage was beautifully designed to suit the

night. Lighting was on point.

In 2012, the show started at exactly 11:00pm,

fast forward to 2013, the show started at exactly

11:35pm. This year's blame was channeled at

the rain, but discipline was thrown to the wind,

a development which caused guests who tried to

make the slated time had to wait outside for

those putting finishing touches inside the main

auditorium to finish. The sad news is: some of

the attendees had to leave to retire to their

various beds.

The entire organization according to what we

gathered was upon the shoulder of just one man:

eye witness says it was same man at the gate

monitoring proceeds at the same time was at the

backstage rotating three award plaques that he

brought to dummy the entire public. Report has

it that not even one of the winners went home

with their awards.

The fact will linger that about two-thirds of

everyone that was seated in that auditorium last

night, had an issue with the organization but

some will deny it though it was clear that the

organizers deceived the public when they told us

that the South African music group-Mafikhozolo,

were going to perform at the events.

In general, the night saw so many dramatic

happenings such as Joselyn Dumas almost

flipping out her breast at the mention of her

name as a proud winner in the category which

Leila Djansi had vividly chastised the organizers

for wrongfully doing so. But in all, JD as she is

fondly called cautioned her director and literally

asked her to allow sleeping dogs rest in peace.

The melodrama of reconciliation that occurred

between Leila Djansi and Shirley Frimpong-

Manso during their awards receiving showed

that the two ladies have grown up and burnt

their hatches.

Nadia Buari and Jackie Appiah also publicly sent

a message that they are two good pals once

again, even if it was going to last for that night.

It was simple, the message in those gesture

showed that everything about every that

everyone is unique.

Onto the nominees: the nominations and the

categories which had already sparked

commentaries from movie enthusiasts, it was

time to see who will carry the ultimate prize,

and this year was another great feat for Leila

Djansi's "Northern Affair", a movie she had

stylishly made Mabel Germain the Producer

because of her comments few months back

about not doing movies in Ghana and for the

Ghanaian public again.

Obviously, this paid off for her even beyond her

imagination as she carted more awards away at

the event due to her international standard


Congratulations to John Dumelo and Jackie

Appiah for showing their true maturity on the

various movies they picked accolades for.
