In a recent interview with Amansan Krakye, showbiz critic Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo passionately expressed his frustration with the perception that entertainment pundits have nothing meaningful to contribute to society. Asamoah-Baidoo vehemently argued that such claims were not only baseless but also displayed a lack of understanding regarding the value of their profession.
Asamoah-Baidoo, a well-known figure in the showbiz industry, emphasized that entertainment pundits are not idle individuals who express their opinions for the sake of it. On the contrary, they are invited as resource persons on various media platforms due to their experience and expertise, just like any other respected profession.
Drawing a parallel with sports and political pundits, Asamoah-Baidoo questioned the logic behind discrediting entertainment pundits. He highlighted that when sports pundits discuss sports-related issues or political pundits engage in political discourse on radio or TV, their contribution is generally respected and acknowledged. Therefore, undermining the role of entertainment pundits based on a misconception of their work is nothing short of stupidity, according to Asamoah-Baidoo.
By defending the significance of entertainment punditry, Asamoah-Baidoo aims to challenge the prevailing perception that belittles their profession. His comments serve as a strong defense of entertainment pundits and shed light on the valuable insights they bring to the showbiz industry.
While entertainment pundits may face criticism and be subject to varying opinions, Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo’s argument serves as a reminder that their contributions should not be disregarded or underestimated.
