I am Gardea Kotee Mayon alias Canon D'BOSZ: why should people vote me as President Liberia Movie Union

1. Team player: Gardea is a team player. This has been proven by people he has worked with over the years. He has shared most of us here events, attended most of our functions, provided spaces for our voices to be heard. He has worked with some of us here, this we can testify.


2. Gardea is trained in the field of filmmaking and he knows what is means to have a struggling industry like ours. He is willing and knows how to breach the gap between some of us not being schooled to filmmaking, thus preparing us for professional filmmaking. 


3. He is not as new in the industry as some of us are thinking. Gardea joined the industry in 2002 back in Ghana, so if u calculate well u know how long he has stayed. 

4. Advocacy and promotion: Gardea has advocated for a 💯 local content on LNTV. Even though it hasn't fully materialized, the rest have been left with the filmmakers to make it successful. Many of u here are witnesses of his numerous messages calling on Liberian producers to bring content at the state broadcaster for airing. He has encouraged most of us here to continue doing what we are doing and help identify our short comings and provided ways forward for many of us in reaching a reasonable standard in the industry. 

5. Canon/Gardea has high on his platform the negative impact of foreign content dominating our market and how we can tackle them. He has plans to further decentralized the movie Union, empowering the guilds and associations. 

6. Gardea has not abused any opportunity. He has barely spend one year in Nigeria, yet he goes to Nigeria to work and teach periodically. He has always shared his experience with us and willing to link any filmmaker to his little contacts he has in Ghana and Nigeria. 


Finally, this brother has been providing training for groups, individuals, county levels, etc. Gardea hopes to launch his platform he has termed: REDEEM in few days from now. Reconciliation/Recruitment, Education, Decentralization, Empowerment, Entertainment/Awards and Marketing(REDEEM). This he believes can work with all of us being part of this great process. He can't work in isolation, that he has acknowledged. Anyone who has followed this young man knows him from how he started and where he is today, humble, cooperative, understanding, reasonable, I can go on and on and on.... Let's support Gardea/Canon and work with him for the growth of this industry.

Open Letter to President George Weah

C Liberia Clearly CEO calls on George Weah to take Arts and Culture seriously.
The Honorable George M. Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia, I write to endorse your "Pro Poor" agenda. I fully

support your call "to ensured Liberians are not spectators in the

Liberian Economy."    In

order to carry out this "Pro Poor" agenda successfully,

and in order to fully empower the young generation, the Liberian Entertainment Industry must be included. 

Arts and Culture has played a critical role in keeping our young citizens gainfully employed.  From the music industry to film industry to the fashion industry, this generation has benefitted from the employment opportunities arts and culture provides. 
To extend the benefits of arts, culture and tourism, the Liberian government must support and rely on arts and culture as a key input for rebuilding our nation. There are several actions this administration should take to strengthen the role that arts and culture p…
