Actress Yvonne Okoro Hospitalized; Misses Her Best Pal Yvonne Nelson's Huge Premiere On Sartuday

Actress Yvonne Okoro was one of the top Ghanaian actresses expected to grace the red carpet at Yvonne Nelson’s ‘Single & Married’ premiere on Saturday night. However, she didn’t show up. The two Yvonnes are well known for being very good pals. They like hanging out together most often. In recent times, because of their busy schedules, they hardly make time to hang out. But some time two weeks ago when Yvonne Nelson was travelling to London, Okoro dropped her off at the airport. Most journalists at Silverbird Cinema asked why Okoro didn’t show up at a special occasion like Yvonne Nelson’s premiere. However, the actress’ close aides told NEWS-ONE that she was unwell, hence she could not make it to the premiere. “You know Yvonne won’t miss out on Yvonne’s premiere for anything. They are like sisters. She was ill and Yvonne Nelson was aware of it. That’s why she didn’t come. She has been indoors for days after she was hospitalized. It was just bad that her illness coincided with the prem…

Ghanaian English Film Industry Is Suffocating, Producers Are Not Shooting Movies

Ghana’s film industry is facing another setback a few months after news reports that movie sales in the country had fallen. Reliable sources said majority of English film producers were no longer enjoying the monopoly of shooting movies back to back. In simple terms, English filmmakers are not shooting like they used to do, even though same can’t be said about the Twi movie industry. Last year by this time, production houses and actors were very busy shooting on set. But it is a different case this year, with this month registering one of the lowest. The few Ghanaian actors who were busy had their productions in Nigeria and back in Ghana they produced their own movies. Also, the movies making the news now were shot months ago. Even though there have been pockets of English producers doing something, those are just TV series. It’s unclear what the problem is. However, some industry players enumerated different reason including the fall in movie sales. Others also blamed it on bad decisio…

Popular Ghanaian Actress Yvonne Nelson Tops Nigeria & Ghana Hottest Actresses

Nigerian entertainment website has named popular Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson as its hottest and favourite actress after comparing her with other top Nigerian and Ghanaian actresses.
The declaration has come barely a wee k to the actress’s planned huge public premiere of her movie, ‘Single & Married’, on September 22 in Ghana and on the 28th in Nigeria. Yvonne starred in the movie and produced it too. The website’s report on Sunday, September 16, compared three Ghanaian actresses- Yvonne Nelson, Jackie Appiah and Nadia Buari- to their Nigerian counterparts- Genevieve Nnaji, Omotola Ekeinde, Rita Dominic, Mercy Johnson, Ini Edo and Tonto Dike- over who was hot, on and off the screens. Even though it didn’t define the criteria for how the names were arrived at as well as a deeper meaning to “on and off the screen”, it named the Ghanaian as the hottest. “When you compare Nigerian actresses with Ghanaian actresses, you will see that the Ghanaian Actresses Jackie Appi…

Ghanaian Actress Nana Ama McBrown Rocks Amakye Dede Legacy Show With Surprise Performance

Popular Ghanaian actress Nana Ama McBrown shocked music audience at the Accra International Conference Center on Saturday night when she put up a spectacular music performance during the Legends and Legacy Ball held to honour Abranie Amakye Dede. McBrown earned a standing ovation when, during her performance, she was joined on stage by two of Ghana’s ‘diminutive’ actors, Joe Shortingo and Taller of Cantata fame. The two actors were dressed in black tuxedos and they sprayed the actress with money while she rocked the stage. Even her ex-lover, Okyeame Kwame had no choice but to enjoy the performance. Prior to the show, the list of artistes advertised to perform included Freddy Meiway, Samini, Okyeame, Nacy, Kwabena Kwabena and number others. The audience was therefore shocked when midway into the show, actress Nana Ama McBrown appeared on stage wearing a see-through lacey outfit and singing Amakye Dede’s ‘Asem Tu Mea Ka Bi Ma Me’. Underneath McBrown’s black see-through lace was a black mi…
