Artiste manager Bullgod says since occupying the office, Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dr Awal Mohammed and his deputy Mark Okraku-Mantey have not made significant contributions to the creative arts industry.
According to the manager, born Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson, ever since Mr Okraku-Mantey was given the political appointment, the politician and music producer is yet to prove he is helping the industry.
“This is the second time we have had a creative person in government and I cannot recall what he has done. I am a number one critic of Catherine Afeku but I can tell you she did better than Mark Okraku-Mantey,” Bullgod said on Showtyme with Andy Dosty show.
Speaking further on Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dr Mohammed Awal’s promise to build five multipurpose domes or amphitheatres last year, Bulldog described the promise as a sham.
“Where are the amphitheatres? They promised last year and up till now where are they? Let’s be serious and that is what saddens my heart.”
Bullgod stated that the citizens are paying taxes but the services rendered to them do not amount to anything.
“We have not asked anyone to promise us theatres. That is insulting and disrespectful. We are the ones looking after them. We are the ones taking care of them with taxpayers’ money. They are government appointees.”
“The most important and valuable thing in life is time. We are all going to die, so we don’t have time. We are not angry enough in this country.”
