Invest in our entertainment industry, we need funds – Yvonne Nelson tells government


On-screen character and director Yvonne Nelson, has approached the administration to put resources into media outlets.

She says the business is one of the undiscovered territories the administration must focus on for employment creation.

Talking on Accra-based Hitz FM, Ms Nelson said media outlets can help fathom the abnormal state of joblessness in the nation yet little consideration is given to the region by progressive governments.

The maker along these lines asked the legislature to urge financial specialists to put resources into the business so as to make more occupations for the jobless.

“We have a lot of investors coming in, the government knows all these people, why don’t they ask them to also invest in the entertainment industry and they will get their money back?” she said.

She added that “Silverbird Cinemas is for a Nigerian not even a Ghanaian and this guy is making so much money. No jobs, we don’t have movies to do any more. If I don’t produce movies then we are all home. People finish schools and they are home” she said.

Touching on some of the changes in the industry, Ms Nelson said most actors get complacent with the little height they attain thereby refusing to strive higher for bigger things.

“We just don’t see the bigger picture. Entertainers just want money in their pocket and sometimes just get blinded. They are being given money, then they shut up”.
