In a speech read on behalf of the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Ibrahim Mohammed Awal lauded UBA Ghana for their gesture and called on other financial institutions to invest in the creative industry.
“Such is the holistic growth that the creative arts and tourism sector in Ghana need and I believe its impact has the potential to transcend into the tourism sector and the country at large,” he said.
Hon. Awal said the COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on the tourism and creative arts industry in Ghana and proactive interventions like the initiative by UBA Ghana offer the opportunity to revitalize and make a meaningful impact in the tourism and creative arts sectors.
The bank’s Lifestyle and Entertainment channel, RED TV is set to premiere the Ghanaian series on its YouTube channel on the 19th May 2021.
The Public Figure series narrates the story of Wonder, a charming young lady, who quits the corporate life under pressure from a sexual pervert of a boss to pitch herself up to be in the celebrity space. It’s a whirlwind rise to the top for her through the corridors of power, literally, more than she ever bargains for.
The movie series unravels a story of love, politics, power play, and celebrity life as we go behind the scenes from hotel meeting rooms to illicit activities in bedrooms and secret presidential villas in a quest to know the mystery behind public figures.
