The Film Producers’ Association of Ghana (FIPAG) has rendered an unqualified apology to the Ghanaian public on behalf the Association, the film industry, actors and all film producers.
The apology rides on the back of a statement made by actor Yaw Dabo suggesting that “Ghanaians who sit for more than an hour to watch movies are lazy people”.
In a statement signed by FIPAG President, James Aboagye explained that the film fraternity finds his (Yaw Dabo) statement to be very unsavoury, offensive and insulting.
He said “such behaviour or attitude is an affront to the film industry and should not be entertained and supported by any well-mannered person”.
“Again, we are of the believe that our brother when given another chance to respond to whatever question that was posed to him would not repeat what he said. Any public resentment that his statement may have caused is deeply regretted”, the statement added.
“We pray that Ghanaians would find a space in their hearts and forgive him and continue to support the Film industry”.
