Mr. Beautiful is not a marketable actor - Movie Producer affirms

After allegations by Ghanaian actor Clement Bonney often known as Mr. Beautiful of being sidelined by movie producers in the Ashanti Region for openly displaying his political colours and rallying behind the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Movie producer and marketer Paul Gee has confirmed the allegations and stated the actor is no more marketable in the Ashanti Region perhaps for reasons he is yet to establish and cannot tell if it is due the difference in political orientation.

Paul Gee who spoke in an interview with Charles Asare on the Angel Entertainment Show on Sunday disclosed saying “although Mr. Beautiful is a great actor, he is not marketable and I would not cast him for a movie since most of the target audience would no longer buy movies that had him starred”.

Although Mr. Beautiful’s accusations had somehow been substantiated by Paul Gee who cast him for one of his popular movies “Ama Ghana” in 2009.

Others believe his dwindling career is not as a result of his political orientation but as a result of other great actors such as Agya Koo, Nkansah Liwin and Kwaku Manu who are now favourites of the people and can equally play his roles.

The great question which remains to be answered is all Kumasi based producers and movie watchers from the NPP?
