A female Lollywood actress has lauded the leadership of the Liberian Movie Union (LIMU) for recognizing their hard work in the industry before announcing tough regulations to control substandard films on the market.
Angelique Myer, one of the female artists who received an award during LIMU’s October 10 honoring program said the union’s leadership is doing just as it promised during the election and hope that it continues doing so.
Myer said she appreciates the union’s leadership for keeping artists in mind, as demonstrated through the honoring program.
“We believe that Martha E. Akorsah’s reign will bring huge transformations to the industry,” she added.
The Blind Orphan cast member welcomed the union’s new policies and regulations – although they are yet to be implemented – and expressed hope that they will help improve the generation of income for actors, actresses and filmmakers.
Hosted at Crown Hill cinema, the awards night was intended to honor movies makers for the positive contribution they make to the growth of the industry and inform them about a series of policies and regulations that the union is about to introduce in order to control the proliferation of movies on the market.
“I’m looking forward for more robust programs that will improve the life of actors and actresses. Programs such as an annual movie festival will be great,” she said.
The up and coming talent noted that the union leadership has been instrumental in taking the organization from nowhere to somewhere, showed concern for the wellbeing of its members and the growth of the industry.
“Great things can begin from little starts before they expand to the highest levels. Bestowing these awards on us is the foundation of many great things to come,” said Myer.
“This is the kind of concern that we waited on for many years from past leadership. Together success can be achieved.”
The night’s other actors, producers and actresses who received certificates of appreciation included John and Paul Flomo, Samaguan, Jalloh, Killer Bean, Dugborma, among many more.
