A three-man team from two different production companies in Ghana are expected in Germany in mid August to help speed up a number of television productions mainly featuring Ghanaians living in Europe.

We at E focus Live and Golden Eye Studio are dedicated to making them feel a part of the entertainment industry in Ghana,”Arthur adds.
He also noted that their efforts are being supported by Nashbee Productions in Hanover, Germany. leading to the two parties’ first TV Production series named ‘’TROUBLE IN HANOVER’’ shot and directed by Isaac Kwesi Oduro Junior who doubles as art director for both companies. The production is expected to highlight the general lifestyle and issues of Ghanaians living in Europe.
