He’s’ currently based in Kumasi as he sojourns in Ghana to finish his traditional assignment.
As a huge national export from Ghana to the world, one would have thought he will grant interviews to the media – to share his Hollywood experiences and perhaps, offer some ideas on how we can better the lots of our movie industry to the world.
Indeed, a good number of Arts and Tourism Writers Association of Ghana, ATWAG, have expressed concerns on why Mr. Mensah has not been given media attention – only for ATWAG member and Founding Editor of NYDJLive.com, Ebenezer Nana Yaw Donkoh, aka NYDJ to disclose how he pursued the Hollywood actor for an interview but all efforts proved otiose.
“He was in Ghana in February for his dad’s funeral. I tried everything to get an interview with him but his family won’t even allow. I did my best to the extent of going to the venue for a dinner after the funeral but still. Funny enough close family relatives didn’t even know he’s a big star” NYDJ disclosed.
NYDJ further revealed how another Arts Writer/Broadcaster also wanted to interview Mr. Mensah but the latter’s family won’t allow.
I remember Hughes [TV3/3FM] follow up and asked if I could get a contact for him but his family won’t allow” NYDJ added.
Some media houses are stumped at how Peter Mensah shuns media attention each time he comes to Ghana – his motherland. Fear of ‘bad’ press? Superstitious belief? Holding unto some age-old bitterness? Ego issues? Well, we hope this piece reaches him for an answer.
