There seems to be fire on the mountain but we are not the Ghana Fire Service.
In recent days, we got information that things weren’t too well between Kumawood actors; Salinko and Mmebusem, and this is all over the Jesus comedy skit both work on.
The Jesus comedy which has gone viral is actually under the main production “Boys Abre” which is directed and executively produced by Salinko.
In an interview, Salinko stated that he conceived the idea for the series and called on Mmebusem to help shoot it but along the line, Mmebusem started acting out of order.
He explained that Mmebusem is using the Jesus dress he wears in the series to shoot his personal skits based on Salinko’s idea for himself.
When asked if it’s true that Mmebusem will be replaced by another actor in the series, Salinko stated that if Mmebusem humbles himself, he’ll still work with him.
If you thought the two were going to iron out their differences then think again because a leaked phone conversation we’ve heard between Salinko and Mmebusem is saddening.
In the leaked recording, Mmebusem asked Salinko what he said about suggestions he brought on board and Salinko indicated that he didn’t work with those suggestions.
Mmebusem them said if Salinko has admitted that he didn’t work with those suggestions and he Mmebusem has decided to shoot those scenes for himself, he sees nothing wrong with it.
Salinko then told Mmebusem that should he shoot any scene relating to the Jesus character in the series using the dress for anyone outside he Salinko’s production, the great antoa should deal with him.
We are quite surprised by Salinko’s utterance because in an interview some months ago, he clearly stated that he’s now a man of God and may not even take on certain roles again. So why curse someone with a river god?
Anyway, this issue doesn’t speak well of the industry and players should step in to bring calm between these two.
