The CEO of Kumawood and Akoben Film Festival, Samuel Darko, popularly known as Samdackus, has made a shocking revelation on how much he earns from organising the award scheme.
Speaking in an interview with DJ Murphy on Bohye FM’s Entertainment Extra, the Kumawood Director said he is yet to make a profit from what he has been doing for some years now.
“As at now, I always run at a loss since I started organising the Kumawood awards,” he stated.
Samdackus lamented actions of some media outlets that do not help the growth of Kumawood Awards.
“We have a big problem. Majority of the media do not support, they always criticize and try to pull people down. When nominations are out, they won’t discuss it but are rather quick to talk about who deserved an award or does not deserve it after the awards.
“It will be fair for them to talk about the nominations because every nominee is a potential winner. It pains me a lot when I hear about such things,” he said.
Commenting on the recent Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigations that exposed some officials of the Ghana Football Association, Samdackus posited: “I got to understand why Countryman Songo always hit hard on him [Kwesi Nyantakyi]. He should have resigned after our last World Cup. It will help to clamp down on corruption in the country.”
When asked if Anas should start an investigation into the Movie Industry, he answered that it will be a waste of time because a lot of money does not pass through that sector.
