The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mark Okraku-Mantey, is unhappy with the work culture of many Ghanaian creatives.

According to him, it is evident that Ghanaian creatives are extremely talented but unfortunately lack the broader knowledge and sometimes exhibit an “unrefined” attitude to work.

“Do not depend solely on your talent; the World is evolving; otherwise, you will be second to South Africa, Nigeria and even Togo,” Mr Okraku-Mantey told newly inducted members of the Art and Tourism Writers Association (ATWAG) in his Office midweek.

“The Association has been around for a while, and after our induction, we thought it wise to introduce ourselves to you. As writers, we are very passionate about the sector, and we want to leave a solid legacy”. George Quaye beseeched Deputy Minister, Mark Okraku-Mantey.

Mark Okraku Mantey assured the executive of a fruitful partnership in his response.
