An entertainment critic and movie producer, Amandzeba Fiifi Smith has described the appointment of Bill Asamoah as Tourism Ambassador as a big disappointment to players in the Creative Arts Industry.
According to him, Bill Asamoah who is also President of the Actors Guild Ashanti Region Chapter, is a die hard supporter of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who schemed to run down the Nana Addo led campaign in 2016.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Abusua Fm, Amandzeba said “Bill Asamoah does not have to say he is here or there, but again these were people who were working underground 2016, Bill Asamoah was part of those who were underground campaigning for Mahama”
But Bill Asamoah who was immediately called into the show in response to the claim denied ever campaigning for the NDC or former President John Dramani Mahama adding that he only serves government and not political parties.
Amandzeba insisted on his earlier claims “I am telling you emphatically that that time they were walking at the corridors of what is called Mahama’s bedroom”.
In 2017, The Tourism Ministry appointed 30 celebrities as Tourism Ambassadors.
Among the 30 ambassadors are Agya Koo, Nana Kwame Ampadu, Okyeame Kwame, Van Vicker, Fuse ODG, D-Black, and Pa John Bentsifi Dadson.
Others are Praye, Andy Dosty, SP Kofi Sarpong, Fancy Gadam, Bibi Bright, among others.
