Controversial Ghollywood actress, Yvonne Nelson, was recently on Ghana’s KMJ on Hitz FM where she gave her opinion about whether or not Cary Fukunaga‘ Beasts of No Nation should be considered for Ghana Movie Award nominations.
Yvonne Nelson said since the movie isn’t actually a Ghanaian production, it will be unfair if it gets submitted for awards.
Here is part of what she said on the radio show:
“It’s not fair to all of us if they submit that movie because it is not a Ghanaian production. The fact that it was shot in Ghana doesn’t make it a Ghanaian production. So I won’t agree to that. If we are trying to promote our own, why will we go for a foreign production? You cannot compare a Hollywood production to a Ghanaian movie. The budgets are totally different.“
