Yvonne Okoro and Majid Michel on set
Talented Ghanaian actors Yvonne Okoro and Majid Michel have raised the country’s flag high at this years’ edition of Nigeria Entertainment Award (NEA) held in New York over the weekend.
Yvonne won Pan Africa Best Actress with her performance in the movie ‘Single Six’.
She competed with popular award-winning actresses Ama Abebrese- ‘Ties That Bind’, Juliet Ibrahim- ‘Crazy Scandal’, Kudzai Sevenzo- ‘Playing Warriors’, Jokate Mwegelo- ‘Chumo’ and Millicent Mahheido- ‘48’. 
Majid also won the Pan African Best Actor with his role in the Frank Rajah-directed ‘Somewhere in Africa’.
The reigning African Academy Awards best actor beat the likes of Van Vicker (‘Paparazzi’), Chris Attoh (‘6 Hours To Christmas’) and John Dumelo (‘Ties That Bind’) to pick the top award.
This is the seventh edition of NEA which honours African entertainers.
It took place via a grand red carpet ceremony in New York, from August 31 to September 2.
Both Majid and Yvonne were not at the ceremony because organizers didn’t put the right measures in place to get them to the ceremony. Other nominees as Ama K and John Dumelo were also not there.
However, there were some popular Nigerian celebrities, some of whom also picked awards, at the ceremony.
