Kumasi Actors Cry For Vote For ZAFAA

Local Twi actors are leaving no stone unturned to win awards at this year’s Zulu African Film Academy Awards (ZAFAA) which is scheduled to take place on October, 21 in London. The award ceremony, which is aimed at honouring talents in the African movie industry and also create a platform for African movies on international stage, will come off at the Troxy Hall 490 Commercial Road, London. There are high hopes that Ghana will cause a stir at the ceremony as a number of the country’s filmmakers have been nominated. They included popular actor Agya Koo, who was nominated for Best Actor Indigenous Language category for his role in ‘Ama Ghana’. While top actress Vivian Jill Lawrence was also nominated for Best Actress Indigenous for her role in ‘Ama Ghana’, director of the same movie, Frank Gharben, also picked nominations for Best Director Indigenous language movies. The movie, ‘Ama Ghana’ itself has been nominated for Best Cultural Movie and Best Cinematography categories while producer Paul Gee was also nominated for Best Producer. Last year, ZAFAA was good for English-speaking actors as Majid Michel and Kalsum Sinare made Ghana proud by bringing home statuettes. This year, Kumasi filmmakers are poised to raise the bar, calling on Ghanaians to vote for them by texting their names and categories to short code 1901 via all networks or visit www.zafaa.com and vote for them on the worldwide web.
