Idikoko In Trouble Again!

Latest information reaching News-One indicates that movie producers from Kumasi who are registered members of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) will soon stage a massive demonstration against the association’s president, Idikoko, and his executive. Our sources said the producers were aggrieved over what they described as an unfair distribution of some GH˘200,000 given to FIPAG from COSGA as monies accrued from copyright levies. Sources told NEWS-ONE that usually, the money was distributed among producers who were registered with FIPAG and that the quantum depended on which producers had released more movies during the year for which the levies were collected. They however complained that the association’s president, Idikoko, who released very few movies for last year, was taking a greater chunk of the money than several producers who had released countless movies for the year under review. They accused Idikoko and the FIPAG leadership of conniving to sit on the money and giving out just a little bit of it. Already, there were reports that the Kumasi-based members of FIPAG were contemplating on breaking away from the association.
