Movie Director Frank Rajah To Snub Majid Michel & Top Other Ghanaian Stars

Award winning Ghanaian director Frank Rajah is ready to start shooting his next film, with the working title ‘The Refugees.
The film’s script is touted as Frank’s best yet and he is making frantic efforts to raise the bar with it. Shooting is scheduled to begin Thursday on some mind-blowing locations in Ghana including parts of James Town, a coastal suburb of Accra. Frank will make extensive use of the coastline as some scenes will be shot on ships at one of the country’s harbours.

Actor Prince David Raps Ex-President Kufour?

Latest photo of popular Ghanaian actor Prince David Osei captures him and rising actress Christabel Ekeh with Ghana’s former president, John Agyekum Kufour. The two actors were full of smiles for perhaps meeting the former president for the first time. They were no doubt happy to have met the old man, whose eldest son, Edward Agyekum Kufour, joined Ghana’s movie industry less than a year ago. Unconfirmed reports said former president Kufour had endorsed his son’s decision to enter Ghana’s showbiz industry. Prince David and Christabel met him recently at the African Regent Hotel in Accra at a cocktail ceremony for the launching of his son’s first movie titled, ‘Wrong Target’, also starring Yvonne Nelson and John Dumelo. It was a joyous moment for the actors and the president and perhaps the actors convinced the ex-president and his party, NPP, to give the creative arts some attention if it returns to power. Prince David is one of Ghana’s reigning actors who have not made their political a…
