Catherine Afeku, who is the Minister of Tourism, Creative Arts and Culture, said that she is shocked. She didn’t expect that some people will react in such a way at the visit of Hollywood stars to Ghana.
Some of the Hollywood stars visited Ghana in the last Christmas break. They went to tourist sites and enjoyed themselves by clicking photos of them in those sites. This visit of the Hollywood stars to Ghana gave some leverage to the country.
However, some of the industry people are of the view that this visit of the Hollywood stars was useless. They think that it didn’t have any impact on the entertainment industry of Ghana. It also didn’t help to improve the Tourism industry of Ghana.
The Minister of Tourism, Creative Arts and Culture, Catherine Afeku, has described her shock at this reaction. This the first time that she has expressed her disappointment over people who think that this visit didn’t benefit Ghana. She said that those people could not see the worth of this visit.
She is of the view that these Hollywood stars have improved the image of Ghana in the Outside world. These people should be appreciated for this.
She said, “If you go to America or London do you look for your colleague movie stars there? Even when you go to Nigeria, do you look for Genevieve? No, why? Because you went there for your business. So if they wanted to meet these stars, they should have hustled and they would have met them”.
