Hunky Ghanaian actor, Prince David Osei has voiced out his disappointment at certain happenings at the Golden Movie Awards that took place over the weekend at Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Monday, the actor told host of the show, KMJ, that he couldn’t comprehend why Kumawood actress, Rosemond Brown, will be given the platform to present an award at such a respected ceremony.
According to him, the show showcases Ghana’s culture across the continent hence he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw terrible English-speaking Rosemond Brown on the podium while “better” celebrities were around to do the honour.
“You bring people who are not articulate to present awards. Her English speaking is out of place. There are a lot of people who could have presented the award. She took an hour to breath. Why is it that when people play the tomfoolery we celebrate? Stupidity is the hallmark. People are doing so well and they are not recognised but if you give the platform to fools…” he fumed.
Shortly after making the comments, however, Prince apologised, saying he was only being sentimental with the matter.
I am sorry about what I said; I am just being sentimental…” he said.
The celebrated actors also blasted the hosts of the show, saying “If you are having an award that celebrates Africa, since it was being hosted in Ghana, we should have projected our country to a certain class. I mean you had an emcee who sang ‘If you are happy and you know clap your hands’ really? “I don’t know what is going in the movie industry but it seems stupidity and tomfoolery is the hallmark. I mean there are great talents out there who are struggling to make it but some people say stupid stuff and all of a sudden they’re a star
