Ghanaian director, Salifu Abdul Hafiz has lashed out at Ghanaian artists that go to Nigeria and South Africa to get their music videos done, saying Ghanaian directors are better their Nigerian and South African counterparts.
In his words: “It saddens my heart when I see some Ghanaian artistes go to Nigeria and South Africa to get video directors to work on their music videos when there are equally good or even better film directors in Ghana. The Ghanaian directors are better than some of these foreign directors who take huge sums of money and don’t even deliver,” he said.
The director who has directed and shot music videos for artistes like Guru, Mr. Eazi, EL, Paa Kwasi of Dobble fame and Maccasio also revealed that he has been getting requests to shoot porn movies.
Hafiz claims that in 2017 alone, he has been offered up to $35,000 by individuals and some production houses to shoot porn in Ghana and South Africa.
Hafiz told Showbiz in an interview last Friday that even though he needed the money, he turned down the offers because shooting porn movies was not in his plan.
“I don’t want my brand to be associated with just anything. Honestly, that money would have helped me a lot but my aim is to project GH. artistes with good quality music videos and not porn,” he said.
