Popular Ghanaian actor, Kofi Adjorlolo, has denied claims that the Nigerian government supports filmmakers in the country.

It’s widely speculated in Ghana that the government in Nigeria has funds for filmmakers.

But speaking on Onua Showtime hosted by Nana Ama McBrown on Onua TV, Mr Adjorlolo shot down the claims.

“It’s a very wrong impression. I have worked with so many Nigerian producers, and there’s nothing like governmental support.”

He said some of the producers look for sponsorships when coming out with projects.

“There is nothing about government support; it’s their own money. Government has no say. But lately, the producers and directors are seeking sponsorship from banks. I remember ‘First Flight to Abuja’ was sponsored by a bank.

“Why? Because corporate bodies realized that Nollywood was popular and a profitable venture, hence their decision to sponsor,” the veteran Ghanaian actor revealed.

Kofi Adjorlolo further stated: “Ghanaians are wrong if they think that way. One of the things the government did for them is to project the brand name. In the past, when the Head of State traveled, actors like Ramsey Nouah, Liz Benson, Zach Orji, and others would accompany the delegation. Why? Because such interactions would help forge partnerships.”
