Young and talented animation music video producer and director, Zenock Gyimah-Amponsah, has always mentioned that he wants many Ghanaian creatives to invest more in the country’s animation industry.

As the years go by, he looks forward to having an all-star animation team in Ghana that will produce many animation music videos and movies.

Known as ZENKS, Zenock Gyimah-Amponsah is a graduate of the National Film and Television Institute of Ghana (NAFTI) who majored in Animation.

Following his love for video production, Zenock soon after he graduated from NAFTI ventured into the production of music animation videos for artistes in the country.

The animator for the past seven year has been involved in the production of animation videos for local artistes, helping to boost the animation industry in Ghana.

“I have been working in animation field for the past 7 years now. I have collaborated with various individuals in the animation and multimedia field of which some of the works gained international recognition and awards. I currently run an animation studio name ANIMATE 24”.

A few weeks ago, the chief executive officer of US-based Gavali Music contacted Zenock to produce animation video Charles Fanti, artiste on the record label to promote his song titled “Sake Of Love”.

Some of my notable works include EDEM (animated short which gained 10 international nominations), Tales of Nazir and We do Som (animated some of the characters), Blakk Rasta’s Mallam Tonga Animated music video and a host of others.

Today in Ghana, there are very few animation studios, but the country’s animation industry is beginning to grow gradually, with a subtle increase in the number of animators and animated music video. Zenock is one of the animators setting the pace for a greater animation industry in Ghana.

Zenock Gyimah-Amponsah has promised to lead a campaign which targets youths or the younger generation to take up animation.

For him, the dream is to see Ghana where there are many young creatives passionate about the art and producing animation music videos and films to promote Ghanaian music and culture.

“I would like to categorically state that NO agency has any RIGHTS whatsoever to my intellectual property,” he said.

The rapper emphasized that he had not granted the group any permission to utilize his video for promotional purposes.

“I, Kirani Ayat, have NOT granted any agency the authority to use my likeness or carry out any work on my behalf.”

The message went on to emphasize that the Ghana Tourism Authority had not disclosed the agency’s identity.

The letter ended by warning the group to disclose the identity of the agency and the signed contracts that formalize the arrangement with the Ghana Tourism Authority.

This comes after rapper Kirani Ayat criticized the government for appropriating parts of his music video, GUDA, without the rapper’s or the music video director, David Nicol-Sey, seeking permission.
