Majority of Ghanaians have questioned producers, directors and actors of the Kumawood Movie Industry on reasons for it collapse.
Section of Ghanaians believe that the Industry has collapsed and may not revive again.

“Seriously the Industry needs strong and good structures to revive. Leadership of the industry should be able to manage the stars. The movie leaders and the actors have personal issues which is another cause of the industry downfall” Ike De Unpredictable said.
According to Ike De Unpredictable, Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) should have proper plan to help them revive the industry.
“The decision of the leadership to go digital is not the best solution to revive the industry. There should be at least a 10 year plan which will bring the industry on track. The leadership should also know how to manage the movie stars and settle their differences”.
