Funny Face sacks Eddie Nartey

Funny Face, Inset: Eddie Nartey Funny Face, Inset: Eddie Nartey

Popular comedian Funny Face is reported to have terminated a contract he had with Ghanaian actor cum director Eddie Nartey.

Eddie Nartey was reportedly contracted to direct Funny Face’s ongoing television drama series, ‘Chicken & Cow, on UTV but midway into the production, the contract was terminated while they were on set.

According to sources, the comedian was not comfortable with how Eddie Nartey was handling affairs on his set so he decided to let him go.

He has therefore gone for a different movie director to complete the job.

The incident has happened at the time a number of Ghanaian movie industry stakeholders have been complaining about Eddie’s alleged style of delaying production and also making unnecessary demands on set.

Recently, Mr Nartey was alleged to have abandoned a movie project he was directing for fellow actor and producer Eddie Watson.

Watson was left with no choice than to direct the concluding parts of the production himself.

Efforts to reach Eddie Nartey yesterday to react to the allegations proved futile.

Until these incidents, Eddie Nartey was the movie industry’s darling new director due to his amazing talent. Many touted him as the best among the lot.

His debut was the movie, “Could This Be Love” which featured Majid Michel, Lil Win, Nana Ama McBrown, Gloria Sarfo, Doris Sackitey and Fred Amugi among others.

He went on to direct Shattered Romance, produced by Juliet Ibrahim, and others.

He has since been getting jobs but not without complaints from producers these days.
