Actor and producer Prince David Osei has revealed his disappointment with the way things panned out following the recent visit of some Hollywood stars to Ghana.
According to him, he didn’t see the impact and essence of their visit since there was no engagement between the Hollywood stars and local stakeholders.
Personalities like Boris Kodjoe, Idris Elba and model Naomi Campbell were among the top Hollywood stars who visited the country during the festive season.
But Prince David Osei believes their visit would have been more profitable if they had engaged stakeholders in the Ghanaian creative industry to share ideas.
“I want to find out if the Ministry of Tourism is behind the Hollywood stars coming to Ghana, being in the creative arts and coming from the creative arts, I didn’t see when we got to interact with the so-called Hollywood stars who came to town,” the actor said on Citi TV.
“I feel if it is a way of boosting tourism they are all in the creative arts industry, they are musicians and actors, so if they come to town we need to interact with them to share expertise and aside that we should have had a workshop.”
He added: “Of what benefit is it to us the actors and the musicians here in Ghana when at the end of the day we saw them at the beach having parties, popping champagne and drinking with some being enstooled as chiefs but we never got to engage them.
