Mimi Andani, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Golden Movie Awards and a former Big Brother Africa contestant, has announced that the movie award ceremony will no longer be held.
Mimi revealed this while discussing the impact of award schemes on Ghana’s showbiz space on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z. She said that she cannot continue to organise the scheme due to financial constraints.
She stated that the Golden Movie Awards did not take place last year due to a lack of funding.
“We were investing our own money for seven years. I am telling you that our budget is almost about 600,000 to 800,000 cedis anytime we are doing the awards. Nobody knows how we get the awards done. Nobody knows how we flew all those actors from other countries to Ghana. All they know is to criticize but have you asked yourself when you look at the award do you even see one major sponsor?” she asked.
She expressed concern over the lack of interest from corporate Ghana to assist her, claiming that they had tried everything to attract sponsors’ attention.
“As I stand here I don’t think I am ever going to do Golden Movie Awards again. Because I have invested for seven years, my money is gone. No company is willing to sponsor me,” she announced.
She maintained that the industry’s key players have been supportive of her initiative despite the lack of sponsorship.
“I have one million percent support from the industry. Thousand and billion support. I will not sit on this platform and lie against these directors and producers. They support Golden Movie Awards with their hearts,” she added
