Veteran actor David Dontoh has condemned the renaming of Ghana’s movie industry to “Gollywood”.

In an interview with host KOD on The Zone on Starr FM Wednesday, the TV personality expressed his disappointment at the move and called it alien.

“I don’t subscribe to the name ‘ Gollywood ‘ because I don’t know where it’s coming from. If it’s the ‘G’ in the name, it could be Guinea or Gambia”.

He also called it an attempt to recreate something that has already been in existence.

“I think we’re just trying to reinvent the wheel. The one who created Ghanaian film called it Ghana Film (film from Ghana). So I don’t know why we’re trying to follow people because everyone has a ‘Wood’ in their name” he said.

Mr. Dontoh called on local movie producers to make movies that Ghanaians will appreciate in order to build the industry.

“Show movies for our own people to appreciate and that’s when I can say we have a movie industry but until that is done, I can’t say we have an industry”.
