Speaking to Citi News, Kofi Adinkra, the National Film Authority’s Head of Business Development and Marketing, noted that the programme gives Ghanaians and tourists an alternate kind of entertainment, particularly during the festive season.

He stated that the authority hopes to make the project an annual event.

“On behalf of the Ghana Film Authority, we are thrilled to collaborate in advancing the Ghana film agenda and the Cinema Agenda. We have dedicated an entire week to championing Ghanaian films among our fellow Ghanaians and encouraging them to experience the joy of cinema. The National Film Authority aims to provide an enticing alternative to musical entertainment for individuals visiting the country this festive season.”

The Silverbird event, attended by aspiring actors, movie producers, and directors, among others, intended to strengthen the campaign for Ghanaian films to reach worldwide recognition. Some film-makers blamed the difficulty of limited worldwide reach on a paucity of films that accurately depicted our stories.

Nana Sam, an actor and producer of Roverman Production, emphasised the need to increase awareness of this effort. She challenged filmmakers to make films that honestly represent and express the tales of our culture and experiences.

“What I witnessed today is truly remarkable. There is a wealth of incredible talent among emerging directors, and I believe there needs to be greater awareness of their work. Increased awareness will lead to more patronage and investment, fostering the growth of the industry. Personally, I seek to be intellectually stimulated and fully engrossed in the cinematic experience. Historically, our films may have lacked this depth, but now we are authentically telling our stories through the art of filmmaking.”

Afua Asantewaa underwent a five-day singing marathon, beginning at midnight on Sunday, December 24 and ending at 7:00 a.m. on December 29. The young woman had been singing for five days, six hours, and 55 minutes when her record attempt ended on Friday morning.

Guinness World Records has disqualified Ghanaian event organiser Afua Asantewaa, who was attempting to set a new record for the longest singing marathon by an individual.

The evidence check had already begun when Afua requested expedited service, so they reimbursed her purchase earlier this month, according to Guinness World Records.

In a tweet on Friday, February 23, the official answer read: “Unfortunately, Afua’s Guinness World Records attempt for the longest singing marathon was unsuccessful, but we hope she will try again soon.” We’ve seen how inspiring it has been for her followers. The evidence check had already begun when Afua requested expedited service, therefore we reimbursed her purchase earlier this month. We wish Afua the best of success in his future record efforts.
