Popular Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor has called for the support and encouragement for local Ghanaian movie producers.
According to Patience who was recently in Kumasi to shoot ‘Mama Africa’, a Ghana-Nigeria collaboration, they are doing well producing movies in the indigenous language and they deserve to be encouraged.
Speaking during a press conference, the actress said, "I am glad things are changing in Africa, where Ghana is taking steps to use and trade with its local language through movies. Bollywood is second when it comes to movie making in the world. They use their local language to shoot, which tells you that it’s not bad for an industry to use local language to shoot movies.
"When one makes mistakes in English, the whole country laughs at the person, but we forget it’s not our language, but rather it’s the white man who forced us to learn it; so if Africa needs to grow, one of the things we can grow with is our language."
