Kumawood Akoben Awards 2018: Venue found, date still unknown


Samuel Darko (Samdarkus), sole organizer of the Kumawood Akoben Awards has mentioned the new venue where the event has been slated.
The renowned Kumawood movie producer said that this year’s edition of the annual awards scheme that rewards outstanding actors and actresses in the Kumawood movie industry is set to come off at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
However, Samdarkus, admittedly explained the hitches that they are faced with, regarding sponsorship. As a result, no date has been set for the awards to take place.
“We got sponsorship from an alcoholic beverage company but we have problems because we cannot promote the awards scheme in any media space.”
Recently, the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) placed a ban on advertising alcohol on radio, television or newspapers until after 8pm. This move is aimed at protecting children from experimenting alcohol at their young age.
However, this rather useful initiative has been a hindrance to the progress of Kumawood Akoben Awards 2018.
