President of Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, has called on players in the creative arts industry to protest against Former HIV/AIDS ambassador, Joyce Dzidzor Mensah.
According to Mr. Okraku Mantey, Joyce is using her creativity to portray Ghana in a bad light hence the need for creative people to show their displeasure against her recent behavior.
Joyce Dzidzor Mensah incurred the wrath of Ghanaians after a video making rounds on social media captured her on board a train begging for funds from the passengers.
Carrying a yellow bowl, Joyce Dzidzor moved from one passenger to the other urging them to make a donation from an amount of €100 before eventually settling on €50.
Speaking on the development, the CEO of Slip Entertainment told Hitz FM, “You decided to sell Ghana in this form and you went this low to ridicule Ghana forgetting that your country first… the Akans have a saying that you don’t point your home with a left finger. So no matter how bad it is, you solve your problems within. You don’t go out there and sell the whole country to the world as if we don’t know what we are about. It is rather unfortunate she is a creative person and this is how she gives creative people a pay back and we must show our protest that this is not how we creative people think,” he stated.
He continued, “If she thinks she has ideas …do more pieces on malaria, people throwing oranges through car windows, etc. There are a lot of problems she can use acting to solve instead of this. I think she wants to become popular. I have been monitoring her over the years; almost everything that she does is to get people to talk about her over months. Some of them are very dirty. And so it takes time to take her as a serious person even if she means well. I never talk about her issues but this very one,”
