Airline Refuses Plane Despite $5,000 Charge: Lil Win Exposes Struggles Faced by Entertainment Industry

Ghanaian actor and producer, Kwadwo Nkansah, also known as Lil Win, recently spoke about the challenges faced by industry players when it comes to accessing shooting locations. In an interview with Zion Felix, Lil Win revealed an incident where his production team was denied the use of an airplane for a movie shoot, even after agreeing to pay a fee of $5,000.

According to Lil Win, acquiring permissions for desired locations is a difficult process. Despite sending letters and making requests, access to certain places, such as airports, police stations, and hospitals, is often denied. This forces filmmakers to improvise and find alternative ways to complete their stories. Unfortunately, this results in unfair criticism of the final product, as viewers may question why key scenes were not included.

Lil Win also compared the situation in Ghana to Nigeria, noting that the Nigerian film industry is more supportive and enabling. He highlighted that in Ghana, even when producers are willing to pay for access, they are still denied permission.

The struggles faced by content creators in Ghana’s entertainment industry were further highlighted by a recent incident involving a popular skit maker, Or. Likee, who had a confrontation with security officers at Achimota Mall. Likee was prevented from shooting a video at the mall due to lack of proper permission.

Various individuals in the industry, including Ghana’s biggest YouTuber, Wode Maya, expressed their discontent with the incident. Wode Maya criticized the need to ask for permission to shoot videos in public areas, comparing it to his experiences in China, where he was able to film freely and sometimes even received payment for filming in such locations.

He called for unity among content creators in Africa to speak out against harassment during filming in public areas and urged everyone to embrace the new era of digital media.

Overall, these incidents shed light on the challenges faced by Ghanaian filmmakers and content creators in accessing suitable locations for their projects, as well as the need for more support and understanding from relevant authorities.
