Ghana entertainment industry needs a functional structure - BECCA

Award winning Ghanaian songstress, Rebecca Acheampong popularly known as Becca in a brief interview gave answers to questions begging for clues about her love life, Ghana entertainment writers and entertainment.

Enjoy the excerpt…

Becca, while answering question in regards to a Nigerian artiste she would love to settle with if the chance presents itself, she reply thus: “I have never wished to settle down with a fellow artiste, but I don’t know who God might bring my way. But if I find someone in Nigeria who has the things I want in a man, I won’t mind.

For example; I think Ice Prince is an amazing person; 2face is also amazing, though he’s married. Dare Art Alade, MI is among.”

Addressing the low side of Ghana entertainment industry and things it need to learn from Nigeria entertainment industry to grow, she said: “There is a lot of support in Nigeria that individuals and corporate organisations give to the industry, and Ghana lacks that.

Our government needs to pump money in to the industry for it to flourish. Ghana entertainments need a functional structure. May be you guys (Nollywood) can come down and help us in that aspect (laughs).”

Commenting on the effort of Ghana entertainment writers in facilitating the growth of the entertainment industry, she said their effort has not totally being encouraging, but there is hope that they could do more.

“I am not going to lie about this, I think in everything, there are good and bad people. Ghanaian writers are doing quite well, but they could do better. There are writers who are there to bring you down, and there are some who will push you up. Ghanaian entertainment writers are doing quite well, but they could do better.”

“Sometimes when you have a new song, instead of making noise about it through reviews etc, what some rather do is to pick only the negative things about it. If we want to sell our own to the world, why not talk about the good things about it that will sell the country itself in good light?”

“Sometimes, I say to myself “we (artistes) need to meet with entertainment writers in Ghana and talk about it, because, to be frank with you, it is not helping us at all as artiste and a country. We need more entertainment writers who will see the positive effects of doing the right thing that will help and encourage the industry.”

“Our journalists need not to only pick on artistes negatives stories; they need to write about the positive ones as well. Mind you, as an artiste, I am human and I make mistakes” She said.
