Artiste manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson aka Bulldog says the Deputy Minister of Creative Art, Mark Okraku Mantey has not been proactive since he assumed office.
According to Bulldog, Mr. Okraku has done nothing for the industry so far as he assumed his current position.
Speaking on Accra FM, Bulldog alleged that Mr. Okraku Mantey rather distributes monies to his close allies that are presumed to be members of the creative arts industry instead of focusing on fixing the sector.
“Mark Okraku Mantey hasn't done anything but what I know is that he only calls the people around him and gives them money. What has Mark Okraku Mantey done, what I heard is he calls people to give them money. Those Ad for Change guys, he calls them and makes them aware there is money ready for them and they need to pick it up,” Bulldog stated.
Bulldog went on to say that even though he is in the Creative Arts Industry, he has not received anything from the Deputy Minister.
He believes he has not benefited because he will still criticize Mr. Okraku even if he gets his share of the COVID-19 relief fund—as it has been termed, he fumed.
