Renowned actor and broadcaster Mikki Osei Berko popularly known as Master Richard has threatened to go on a naked demonstration if forcing contents on Ghanaian television stations are not banned by December.
Master Richard, who was speaking on UTV Showbiz hosted by Nana Ama McBrown, stated that the influx of foreign contents in the country have kept Ghanaian filmmakers out of business for many years because there are no policies to stop them.
“It is the responsibility of the government to put structures in place for the arts industry…If by December, nothing is done about these foreign contents on television screens, I’ll personally march NAKED to the Jubilee House. Television stations show these foreign contents during prime time,” he said.
Mikki Osei Berko also urged the government to place a ban on foreign drama series (telenovelas) to save the country’s dying movie industry.
The famous actor said he finds it highly offensive seeing foreign drama series aired on television stations at primetime.
