Outspoken actress and film producer Tracey Boakye for the past week has been in the news for all the bad reasons and that doesn’t seem to end any time soon since the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) have also taken actions against her. The latest now is her suspension as a film producer in Ghana by FIPAG.
According to a statement signed by the Association’s President Director James Aboagye, Tracey’s suspension comes on the heels of her recent social media outbursts involving a yet to be identified man which is deemed an “affront to our Ghanaian Culture, Tradition, Ethics and Sensibilities.”
The statement states that Tracey Boakye is “not supposed to take part in any activities during this period until the situation is reviewed.”
Read the full statement below:
“Our attention has been drawn to recent publications and circulation of videos on social media showing pistons of vulgar and unprintable exchanges between Tracey Boakye and musician MzBel.
The contents was so bad and affront to our Ghanaian Cultures, Traditions, and Sensibilities. The Film Producers’ Association of Ghana (FIPAG) finds their actions very regrettable especially that of Miss Tracey Boakye, who happens to be an actress and a Film Producer and therefore supposed to serve as a role model.
FIPAG wishes to render an unqualified apology to the general public and the man involved for her behaviour as that display of character does not represent what the film industry stands for or wishes to propagate.
We wish that Ghanaians will find a space in their hearts to forgive her.
In view of this, FIPAG has immediately suspended miss Tracey Boakye indefinitely. She is not supposed to take part in any of the activities during this period until the situation is reviewed.”
