Graphic Showbiz – No LAL Ball this year?
It is early December but Imajin Advertising organizers of the annual Legends and Legacy (LAL) Ball which honours outstanding Ghanaian musicians, is yet to say anything about whether the event would happen again this year or not.

In an interview with Showbiz last Tuesday, Kojo Soboh, the Events and Promotions Manager at Imajin Advertising said LAL Ball 2015 will definitely be held before the end of this month.

This has been going on since the beginning of this year and is one of the factors negatively affecting the movie industry.

She said the movie production houses indulged in the practice are not only causing dwindling sales of movies bit also killing the movie industry.
