Also absent was the FIPAG president, Mr. S. Asare Hackman. According to reliable information reaching www.nydjlive.com, the president tied the knot the same day.
The event which started around 5pm despite an initial time of 3pm saw hundreds of people clad in red and black gather at the Kumasi Cultural Centre where the demonstration commenced.
The demonstrators later walked through the streets of Bantama, Adum through to the Jubilee Park where they were addressed by the FIPAG secretary Mr. James Aboagye.
Present were a few popularly film producers, marketers and actors.
