Ghanaian actor Kwadwo Nkansah “Lilwin” believes Kumawood will rise again, which is why he is releasing back-to-back shows on our local screens.
According to Lilwin, he spent over GH800,000 on his three recent Kumawood series, all in an attempt to gather the major actors to rekindle interest in local films.
Lilwin said the significant investment in the local film business was targeted toward keeping the sector active ahead of the premiere of his recent series “Papano,” which stars Maame Dokono, Adwoa Smart, and Komfour Kolege, among others.
“We are aware of the difficulties Kumawood has had in recent years, particularly with certain film producers unable to finance film productions.
“So, with my God-given acting skill, I wanted to take a huge step toward rekindling the love for local films.” That’s why I decided to put money into it by bringing in all of the players. In an interview with Ghana News Agency, he stated, “Recruiting artists from the outset is also to give Kumawood the essential propulsion and a new phase because I want to see Kumawood flourish again.”
Lilwin went on to say that he is unconcerned about the potential losses, but that he wants to amuse his fans and stay relevant and active in the film industry.
Lilwin encouraged his fellow performers to help revive the Kumawood business and put an end to the backstabbing so that investors would come on board and support it.
The multi-award-winning actor also debunked allegations that he is picky about who he hires on set, adding that everyone is welcome if the part is right for them.
Lilwin has recently wowed moviegoers with a slew of intriguing serial dramas, including Cocoa Season, Police Academy, and Agya Bofo, among others.
