John Dumelo says Producers don't call him for movie roles anymore

Being discussed lately in the Ghanaian movie industry, is the issue with film-makers in Ghana not cooperating with their actors, which has led to the likes of Juliet Ibrahim (Jewelz Productions), Yvonne Nelson (YN Productions), Yvonne Okoro (Desamour Productions) and others branching out to produce their own movies.

According to reports gathered, there have been numerous concerns about Ghollywood movie industry; where actors, actresses as well as some directors have come out to voice out concerns about the worrying nature of the Ghana Movie industry which has resulted in actors and actresses such as Yvonne Nelson, Kafui Danku, Juliet Ibrahim, Prince David Osei, Eddie Nartey and more producing their own movies.

In regards to John Dumelo, here's the story highlighting why the popular Ghanaian actor has not been seen on the screen for sometime: 

"John Dumelo in about five months has not stepped a foot in the Capital Accra, Ghana. He’s been in Dubai, Canada, Uk, Amsterdam and other places making appearances at events and as well enjoying some holidays in those periods.

His last time pictured on set in Ghana, witnessed an alleged sextape between himself and actress Christabel Ekeh which got Ghanaians fuming.

From observation, for sometime now, the actor spends much more time outside his homeland which in most cases affect the consistency in the movie industry but in John’s case it hasn’t."

In a recent interview, John Dumelo was asked why he doesn’t like to stay in Ghana and here's what he had to say:

"Well, I know, but the likes of Abdul Sallam Mumuni and other movie producers have refused to cast me in recent times for one reason or the other, I can’t really tell why".

With the report suggesting that it could be the fact that famous actors are a lot more expensive now and producers do not get their moneys worth from the cinema premieres and selling of television rights when they pay huge sums for artists.

When asked if John will be leaving anytime soon, he said:

" I’m here to stay, i have work and other projects coming up so i’m definitely not looking at leaving soon.I’m here for now."
