Ghana film industry dumps Gollywood as Minister chooses new name

The Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Catherine Abelema Afeku says Ghana film industry would not be called Gollywood as stakeholders reject the name.

The Minister said a name opposed by many or given by just one person could not be accepted as the whole industry’s name.

Speaking to News at 7 on the Baffour Gyawu’s show, Catherine Afeku said a new name has been chosen after several consultations with stakeholders and all film associations in the country.

“We have come up with a new name and everyone agreed to it. So we have rebranded again from Gollywood and now its AWUWOOD” – the minister said.

According to the minister, Awu and wood come together to form Awuwood. Awu in akan means dead.

“THe industry is a dead one” – Catherine Afeku added.
