Ten top journalists including presenters and DJs from different media houses in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region, have moved into acting since the year began and this has raised interesting questions on whether the movie industry is now more lucrative than being on radio.

Interestingly, all the journalists turned actors starred together in a soon-to-be-released movie, ‘Electricity Power’, produced by E&E Productions and directed by Jones Agyeman.

The lineup of journalists that played leading roles in the movie includes Mmrantee Hene from Otec FM, Nana Ampofo from Fox FM, Nowa King from New Mercury FM, Roman Fada, Dove FM, Eugene Moratt, also from New Mercury FM, DJ Cosby from Light FM and others whose names were not readily available.

They were cast alongside celebrated actor Kwadwo Nkansah, popularly known as Lil Win, seasoned actor Akrobotu and the Kumasi-based sensation Matilda Asare. Also in the movie is Kumasi-based gospel artiste Lady Diana.

A source from the production team told NEWS-ONE that the movie, ‘Electricity Power’, was based on a true life story and exposed the rot making Ghanaians not enjoy constant electricity supply.

“‘Electricity Power’ is a true life story that talks about cheating in marriage, how your wedded wife can be flirting with your best friend and how a marriage can crash when you lose your job.
It was shot in both Ghana and Ivory Coast and actually some of the cast are from Ivory Coast,” Eugene Morrat, the producer, told NEWS-ONE.

Eugene Morrat has produced other good movies including ‘Ghana Police’, ‘Agya Koo In Libya’ and ‘Libya Akwan Tuo’.
