Deputy Minister for Tourism Creative Arts and culture, Mark Okraku Mantey believes constant occurrences of beefs in the country's creative arts industry is a bane.
In a recent interview, Honorable Okraku Mantey stated that it retards the progress of the industry as investors are not motivated enough to put their monies in.
Why do we negate our industry with these things, are these the only things we can sell about our industry, these things prevent us from getting sponsors and sometimes the investors we crave for and that is so unfortunate," he stated.
Mr. Mark urges celebrities to be of the best of attitudes because according to him, in several years to come, they may not be of relevance as they are now and individuals may want to come to them for advice.
This, he said will depend on their recent attitudes and ways of life.
He made reference to legendary Ghanaian boxer, Azumah Nelson, "Look at someone like former world champion, Azumah Nelson, today everyone wants to associate himself/herself with him and it is because of who he is, he is down to earth, people go to him for advice among others.”
Mark Okraku Mantey further advise celebrities to make positive use of their current fame.
