Ghanaian artiste manager and entertainment pundit, Nana Poku Ashis, has raised a concern about how politicians in the country treat creatives.

He said Ghanaian politicians fail to support the creative art sector after creatives help them to win elections by campaigning for them.

Ashis tagged the situation as disappointing in a recent interview with Graphic Showbiz which Newshuntermag.com has come across.

“It is about time players in the Creative Industry come together as one voice to fight for a common goal because politicians have taken them for granted for far too long.

“We are only needed during campaign time so they can come to power and after that, we are left on our own. I have told myself that until a presidential candidate can convince me that he has our interest at heart and is willing to implement policies that help creatives, there is no way I am voting. I believe if every creative thinks like me, they will take us seriously and provide us with what we need to effectively execute our jobs.

“With how we have been treated so far, I don’t expect to see any creative jumping on any political platform to campaign for a politician until our voices are heard. In December, we will be voting, and we will be needed for campaigns, and this is the time we should make our voices heard. Let’s come together as one and fight for a common goal,” he stated.

Nana Poku Ashis, however, talked about how the creator art sector contributes to economic growth, job creation and government tax revenue.

“It is about time the government took a serious look our way. The creative sector makes huge money for this country, so I cannot understand why we are neglected. Just look at all the money and jobs we created via just December in GH.”
