Founder & CEO of Rigworld Group, an oil services business with operations across West Africa, Dr. Kofi Amoa-Abban, has pledged $10,000 towards setting up the Ghana Movie Awards Fund (GMAF), an initiative of the organizers of the awards show.
This was announced ahead of the 9th edition of Ghana Movie Awards which was held over the weekend, December 30, 2019 at the National Theater.
“For their contribution in shaping and promoting Ghanaian culture through the powerful medium of movies over the years, there is a dire need for a fund to support their welfare in their old age, hence GMAF”, explains Fred Nuamah, CEO of Ghana Movie Awards Foundation, organizers of the annual film awards that recognizes excellence in the Ghanaian film industry.
The Ghanaian Oil and Gas entrepreneur and philanthropist made this pledge in a meeting organized by Foundation and attended by some of our veteran actors including, Doris Okang, Kojo Dadson, Fred Amugi, Paa George, et al.
Operations and structure of the GMAF will be announced in the first quarter of 2020 when the Foundation plans to launch the 10th anniversary of the Ghana Movie Awards scheduled for December 2020.
