Movie director and editor Samuel Owusu Asare popularly called T-P Klan has accused many Kumawood actors of taking cars and cash from the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).
T-P Klan on OB TV days ago lashed Isaac Rockson, former PRO for Agya Koo for alleging that Mr. Samuel Nyamekye, CEO of Miracle Films has planned to kill Liwin’s career in order to make Agya Koo relevant by casting the latter in many movies because he has endorsed NPP.
The TV presenter said he has list of Kumawood stars who have taken cars from the ruling party ahead of this year’s general election. T-P Klan named Bill Asamoah, Martha Joyce Arthur, Tracey Boakye, Gloria Kani, Christiana Awuni, Wayoosi, Asare Bediako, Michael Kwaku Ola, and Isaac Rockson as the individuals who have taken car from NDC.
He blamed Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Hon. Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare for the division in the movie industry. According to him, the cars she is distributing has brought confusion in the Kumawood movie industry.
Zionfelix.net reported weeks ago reported that Isaac Rockson has denied allegations that president Mahama has dashed cars to actors in Kumasi.
According to him, Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) loaned the cars to celebrities from the region after the Ashanti Regional chapter of Ghana Actors Guild headed by Bill Asamoah presented a list of actors interested in the cars to the company. Isaac Rockson continued that MUSIGA president, Bice Osei Kufour aka Obour first initiated this policy a year ago which allowed many entertainers in the capital city to acquire cars from MASLOC on a loan.
“These actors had a loan from MASLOC to secure the cars but people are saying president gave them the cars. President Mahama has not dashed anybody a car. The car they are talking about are the ones the Ghana Actors Guild’s president in Kumasi, Bill Asamoah initiated.
Obour initiated this same policy last year so this policy did not just start today. Even as I’m talking, producers in no time will have their cars soon” Rockson told Dave Hama in Kumasi.
He added that actors who were given the cars made initial payment of Gh10, 000 even though price for all the cars were not the same.
Rockson noted that Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjari warned the actors never to politicize the cars given to them on a loan because that is not its purpose. He further disclosed that the minister pleaded with them for the cars to be distributed after election in order not for Ghanaians to talk bad about it but they did not concur.
“Its never true that the cars were given based on your political affiliations. I know people by where they belong but they were given the car. The minister said categorically that nobody should use this car for politics.
Even when Bill Asamoah was presenting the list, the woman even wanted them to hold on so that its given to them after elections.”
