Popular Kumawood actress, Mercy Aseidu says the current incursion of technological advancement in the movie industry has influenced the rapid decline in the marketing of CDs.

“All I can say is technology. Because In those days, when we shoot a movie, we put them on CDs and sell them. Now, nobody is going to buy CDs, they download it,” she said.

The actress acknowledged that everyone is working round the clock to use this social media upsurge to their own advantage.

“We want to know how we can do the work and make it accessible on social media. That is the problem,” Mercy Asiedu told JoyNews’ Becky on E Vibes.
