Big Akwes: I’m Upset, But I Gave Akufo-Addo Financial Assistance Throughout His Campaign In 2016

Big Akwes, an actor from Ghana, has expressed his dissatisfaction with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, claiming that he has broken pledges made to the film industry.

He recalled that he sent money to Akufo-Addo’s campaign in the 2016 election because he was convinced that he would take care of the demands of the business.

Big Akwes asserts that the president has not lived up to expectations since assuming office by failing to fulfill these pledges.

Speaking with MzGee on the United Showbiz program, the actor described how Akufo-Addo’s ability to persuade others to support his candidacy led to his own and others’ endorsement.

“I didn’t belong to Agenda 57, which is the ensemble of performers that support the NPP, including Agya Koo and Matilda Asare. My campaign was not for Akufo-Addo. I gave him financial backing for his campaign, which enabled him to gain power. We felt he would help filmmakers because of his persuasive words.

Filmmakers, if you believe in and trust me, I will assist you, he said. Mahama, disregard me; at my age, money is not for anything.

“His dishonesty and love of money were unknown to us. We’ve complained, but it’s been disregarded. All the promises of a theater, a film community, and producer incentives were never fulfilled. “Those who are not in line with NPP were marginalized by the unethical actions of the fund distribution committee,” he said in Twi.

Mr. Beautiful and Christiana Awuni, among other prominent individuals in the creative arts, have also voiced their displeasure with the way the Akufo-Addo administration has handled the film industry.
