Lilwin is an illiterate film maker - Ola Michael
Ghanaian pundit, Ola Michael, slams Liliwin over his upcoming series
Ola Michael has stated that Lilwin knows nothing about filmmaking.
He made this statement in a discussion on Neat FM’s ‘Entertainment GH’ program hosted by him. He stated emphatically that it does not matter if Lilwin is shooting a series, actors cannot be described as filmmakers.
Ola Micheal further stated that Lilwin came in the industry begging and he was even taking GH¢20 as payment.
He then mentioned how Mr Jackson Bentum, a mentor to Lil win, kept on begging directors and producers to give him roles, yet he has abandoned him after gaining fame and money.
The outspoken media personality stated that he laughed when he heard Lilwin’s claim that he was going to revive the movie industry with his upcoming Cocoa Season series.
Lilwin had earlier touted his upcoming TV series as the saviour of the Ghanaian movie industry through his series which will feature known actors Kofi Adjorlolo, Vivian Jill, Mr Beautiful, Kalybos, and Agya Koo. Musicians such as `Kwesi Arthur, Sista Afia, Yaa Pono, Fameye, among others, with moisture of upcoming acts, has been said to cost him north of GHC300,000.
“Local movies help preserve our culture as a people and as an actor, I was not happy about how foreign series had dominated our screens. Despite the downfall of the film industry over the past years, I decided to do something creative that would receive the movie industry and continue to thrill movie loving fans."
"So I decided to combine veteran actors and popular musicians in this series so that both music and movie fans can have a feel of what their favourite artistes can do on the screens,” he claimed.
Ola Michael asserted that Lilwin being an executive producer doesn’t mean he is a filmmaker.
