Socrate Sarfo, the current Director for Creative Arts at the National Commission on Culture (NCC), has sought to explain the reason behind his tears in a video of him that has been making some rotation on the internet.
According to the movie director, the tears were because according to him, “even though the incumbent NPP-led Ghana government has done so much for the arts industry, dissemination of information concerning such achievements is low.”
A few weeks ago, Mr Sarfo was seen publicly expressing his disappointment in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for neglecting him.
He stated that “some celebrities who rallied behind the NPP four years ago are getting tired because the frustration is too much”.
Socrate however decided to make some clarifications on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z with George Quaye.
“It was a cry for information because, after years of calling for help from the then NDC government, all we got as an achievement for arts in those days is Hyundai i10 cars that were shared to a few of the party’s faithful.
“Now, the ruling party has done quite a lot and there’s no flow of information,” he said.
He added, “There’s a government that has not performed but has loud mouthed people out there, and a government doing a lot but silent and that’s the challenge of the NPP government”.
