FIPAG & MUSIGA to Ban Any Actor or Musician Who Campaigns for President Mahama
The Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG), in partnership with the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) have issued a directive warning their members not to campaign for the first gentleman of the land, President John Dramani Mahama.
According to the two bodies, any musician or actor who violates this regulation will face the disciplinary committee and be banned from acting in movies or producing songs within the confines of Ghana.
At a one day workshop organized by these two bodies for musicians and actors in the country, Chief Executive Officer of Movie Africa Productions and former spokesperson of FIPAG, Socrates Sarfo said woe betides any actor or musician who campaigns for President Mahama in the upcoming general elections.
According to him, the creative arts industry has not benefitted from President Mahama in any way whatsoever so it will be more than disastrous to keep him in power for another four years.
He further stated that MUSIGA and FIPAG have put in place measures to sanction any actor or musician who will endorse President Mahama either through music or movies.
“The creative arts industry cannot survive under this bogus government. Let’s fight for the things that will keep our industry going. Mahama has neglected us so we also need to neglect him. Woe betides anyone who campaigns for him this year. Such person will be banned from producing music or acting in movies,” he said.
