View Full Version : I'd Not Beg People To Watch My Movies - Shirley Frimpong Manso

Shirley Frimpong Manso, the award-winning movie producer reputed to have ‘iron balls’, has said she is in no mood to tolerate critics who have opined that her 10-chapter ‘Adams Apples’ should have been just one movie.

Shirley has told News-One she would not beg people to watch ‘Adams Apples’ and those who do not like the movie should simply not watch it!
Quite uncharacteristic of her, Shirley almost flared up when News-one sought her view on the debate of whether or not ‘Adams Apples’ would have been better off as a single movie rather than a 10 episode series.


“I don’t know what to say to that. This is what I did. I can’t answer that question. People do a dress and make it short, they make it long, and they make it whatever. It is an art like somebody does a painting, you understand. It is from my point of view, if you like it, watch it.

“If you don’t like it, you don’t have to watch it. I am not trying to please one particular person. People enjoy good entertainment, people will buy it and go home and watch it. I think people should stop asking the question and just let people enjoy what they are enjoying because it is what it is.

“It is a ten-chapter movie, may be next time we will do a 30-chapter movie. If it works, it works. It doesn’t, hey it is no big deal,” she said in a tone that clearly showed she was pissed off at the question.
She was speaking to News-One in a short interview on Monday evening at the Silver Bird Cinema after ‘Adams Apples’ Chapter 4 was premiered for the media and sponsors.
