“God Healed Me” – Actor Waakye Reveals
Veteran Ghanaian actor Prince Yawson popularly known as Waakye has confirmed he was sick but God has healed him. The filmmaker was reported to have been hit with a mild stroke some years ago.
Some people alleged that he was rushed to a spiritual home in August this year when his condition detoriorated.
However, the actor in an interview with Hitz FM’s Doreen Avio said he felt bad hearing the numerous misinformation put out by people about his health status.
He stated that a lot of media houses failed to crosscheck information they put out.
“I watched a video of a newscaster who said I had a little chance of survival. It is as if you are the one who gives life, as if God told her He was going to kill me. I don’t know where they got that from” Waakye said.
Waakye assured that at the right time, he will come out to clear the air on all matters related to his health.
“Once Upon a time I was sick but I am well. The Bible tells us not to say I am sick but say I am well, that is why God will touch you but if I say I am sick then you will go sick but I have been well, God has touched me, God is busy on me,” he added.
Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare Denies Claims By Mark Okraku Mantey Against NDC
Former Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare has stated that, contrary to claims by President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, the erstwhile John Mahama administration left notes on the sector during the 2017 transition.
Mr Okraku-Mantey, who was speaking during an event at the Accra Tourist Information Centre, had stated that workers of the Ministry had informed him that, zero investment had been made since the Creative Arts was added to the Ministry of Tourism and Culture.
But speaking on Hitz News @ 1 on Thursday, Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare urged Mr. Okraku-Mantey to stop the blame game and get serious. This according to her is because there is a lot of work to be done.
“He should stop the blame game and work. Ghana needs money, the Creative Arts industry needs money so if you just sit there and say they didn’t leave any money for us, there is no money in our coffers, what is that?
“He should get serious please, and please let Okraku-Mantey know there is a lot of work to be done which he hasn’t done.
“For him to say he is President of the Creative Arts, he should make sure that the law is passed otherwise he is president over nothing,” she said.
While listing some achievements by her office, the former Minister said they drafted the Creative Arts Bill which was ready for cabinet but lost power in 2016.
She added that they also ensured the passage of the Film Law which would include a fund.
Madam Agyare revealed that the Creative Arts industry was given GH¢1 million to work with, making allegations that investment was not made in the sector false.
“The Creative Arts industry was given GH¢1 million and Okraku Mantey can speak to that as well, and so if you say we did not make any investment in the Creative Arts industry what does he mean?
“Every year we took money from the Tourism Development Fund, so we could have given them another GH¢1 million if we hadn’t lost power in 2016,” she said.
Rating the works of the NPP, she stated that the government has not paid attention to the Creative Arts and did not continue from where they left off.
She advised Ghanaians especially the Creative Arts stakeholders to re-elect former President John Dramani Mahama to continue his good works.
“Mahama Made No Investments In Creative Arts Sector” – Mark Okraku Mantey
The President of the Creative Arts Council has stated that the erstwhile John Mahama administration left no notes on policies initiated for the Creative Arts industry during the 2017 transition. According to him, workers of the Ministry also alleged that zero investment was done since the Creative Arts was added to the Tourism Ministry.
“In 2017 we met the Tourism Minister, Elizabeth Ofosu Adjare to find out what they left behind in terms of monies, investments and after an hour of talks, nothing was mentioned about the Creative Arts.
“So I took time to find out why and her team told us that since the addition of creative arts to the Ministry, they have not made any investment,” he said
Speaking at the CreativeArts4More campaign at the Accra Tourism Information Center on Wednesday, Mark Okraku Mantey disclosed that his team had to start from scratch.
“Indirectly, this government inherited zero note for the creative arts so we are starting afresh,” he said.
