For years Ghanaians have laboured for a name for the country’s film industry. For almost a decade the name “Ghallywood” was used by some players in the sector.

The success of the Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood has forced Ghana to find a catching name.

But that has now changed with the unveiling of the name “Gollywood” in the country’s capital Accra.

The new name was unveiled last week by leaders of the film industry at a film summit.

The Gollywood name appears to be taking cue from Hollywood (for American movie industry). Bollywood also refers to the Indian movie Industry while Nollywood is the name for the Nigerian movie industry.
