Socrate Safo and Okraku Mantey Should Be Blamed for the Industry’s Problems – Ola Michaels
Experienced showbiz critique, Ola Michaels has pointed blaming fingers at seasoned music producer, Mark Okraku Mantey and movie producer, Socrate Safo for the current challenges the creative industry is facing.
According to Ola, Mark and Socrate led Ghanaians to believe that the NPP government was going to save the rather struggling industry.
“They should be blamed because they caused all this. They promised things will be better and here we still are”, he told Sammy Flex, host of Zylofon 102.1 FM’s Showbiz Agenda.
His submissions are as a result of the ongoing misunderstanding between the Ministry of Tourism Arts and Culture and the Creative industry.
According to him, Socrate and Okraku, who prevailed on the Creative industry to support the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as they had promised to make conditions of the industry better, have failed the industry.
He further surmised that, this casts a snare on the integrity of the two reputable industry stakeholders.
“We listened to them and we did as they said and this is how far they’ve brought us”, he concluded
