Award events in Ghana have become so weightless due to repeated complaints, that these days the only thing that rings bells is who was there and what they wore. So as you read this now, our Ghanaian celebrities are putting stylists and designers to work, but…..
You can purchase you own ticket or get an invitation; you can drive your own car to the venue or get a ‘lift’ – but you cannot wear whatever pleases you to the forthcoming 7th edition of the Ghana Movie Awards , therefore, actors and patrons who intend to go slay the red carpet should get the memo.
“The prescribed attire for the awards is tuxedo or black tie for the men and evening/dinner gown for the ladies. No short dresses will be allowed,” Says Mr Fred Nuamah, the organizer for Ghana Movie Awards. He also stated that, this year’s edition, which will be held at the Kempinski Hotel, will not accommodate a large number of patrons and very limited tickets will be put out on sale.
That’s a shame regarding short dresses, considering the nature of weather in Ghana. Then again if that’s what they see in the west then I guess that’s what we are expected to do. Speaking on the state of the movie industry, he also added “The industry is not dying. The filmmakers are working. The issue is that, movies are not being released on DVDs anymore. This is happening in Hollywood too. They are sent to IROKO and Netflix and others,” he explained.
The 7th edition of the Ghana Movie Awards will take place on December 4, 2016 and will be telecast live on DSTv and other local channels.
