Top 10 Most Famous Ghanaian Movie Stars (Updated)…78 Comments

GC Staff
Posted on 12 Sep 2010 at 9:13pm

If you are not being talked about, it means you are not worth it. The list for the most-searched top 10 Ghanaian movie stars on Google is out, researched and compiled by GhanaCelebrities.Com.

For celebs who couldn’t manage their way into the top 10, there is no need to worry so much (not all those on the list are celebrities anyway). I tried making it top 15 but there wasn’t enough data for the analysis. It is a pain that none of our directors and producers is in the top 10.

  1. Van Vicker
  2. Nadia Buari
  3. Jackie Appiah
  4. Yvonne Nelson
  5. Agya Koo
  6. Majid Michel
  7. John Dumelo
  8. Juliet Ibrahim
  9. Nana Ama Mcbrown
  10. Chris Attoh

And i also saved sometime for myself . After the list above, i tried searching my name and Google hit back, notoriously warning me that there is nothing like that crap in their database. Damn! I know why Google sent me that annoying feedback.

Probably, i haven’t been Majid Michel enough (exposing my hairy ass and licking Yvonne Nelson’s thighs- ‘Heart of Men’ or i haven’t been swinging my waist in ecstasy like Juliet Ibrahim- ‘4 Play’). My bad right!… The things some people do to be famous is amazing. Anyway Congrats to all who made the list…

UPDATE

Google Results

According to the Search Results:

  1. Jackie Appiah is the most-searched celebrity in Ghana.
  2. Nadia Buari is searched more in United Kingdom and USA than Jackie Appiah.
  3. Van Vicker is searched more in Nigeria and South Africa.

How it works

  • Google analyzes a portion of worldwide Google web searches from all Google domains to compute how many searches have been done for the terms entered, relative to the total number of searches done on Google over time. The data is scaled and normalized to find the average.
  • No matter where the search is done, every data is scaled (displayed on a scale of 0 to 100) and normalized (dividing the sets of data by a common variable to cancel out the variable’s effect on the data).
  • Average (the main results) is found after scaling and normalization as shown above in the graph.

If anyone uses other search engine like Yahoo Search, the data is not applicable in this analysis.

My grandma lives in the countryside and knows nothing about internet not to talk of Google. Does it mean she is not a fan of Agya Koo?

    Some of you people behave as if you cannot read, they said in the article, the most searched on Google and they used googled to compiled this list. 

    Anyway, the reason why I think Van Vicker is on top is because of the Nigerian population. Van will be searched by both Nigerians and Ghanaians and the huge Nigerian population together with their huge internet users will surely put him on top. So for Van, I am not shock he is on top

    But how on earth can Nadia Buari beat Jackie Appiah? Nadia should move down one step, I am going to search Jackie to add my count .lol

    @ada, lol and double lol. How on earth can a single lesbian and a low profile actress like Nadia have more worth than Jackie? Go check into a psych home or an asylum. This list is very biased but Nadia’s bad press and lies gave her google advantage and nothing more. Her lies like wearing Oscar De La Renta gown, Essien jilting her, and being a lesbian lover of Confidence Haugen gave her this publicity.Nasdia should be downgraded jore.

    I don’t think this is in the right order they just put the names down in no particular order. Cos we all no jackie is way popular than nadia even yvonne is more popular than nadia of late. Van viker is popular to. But Jackie appiah has the biggest fan base on facebook and twitter.

    @asas, and what is Nadia selling internationally? Is it her lesbian affair with Confidence, her lies about  wearing an Oscar de la Renta gown or her Essien  relationship saga. Nadia and even Yvonne should be downgraded cos their popularity isn’t on fair grounds.  Nadia’s lies and bad press earned her those high number of searches and the list is very biased considering this.

    That’s true jackie appiah has the largest fanbase on facebook I’m sure they just wrote down the names. Bcos Magid should come after jackie. They should arrange it in correct order. Nadia should be last but three

    ei ghanaians can be really stupid and if i ever doubted dat some of the comments here r enough evidence is it ignorance or the inability to comprehend articles.
    it makes me weep for our educational system
    the article says the list was compiled using google
    so if u r number one it means you are the number one actor google users have searched for usin google n not facebook or any other media
    being number one doesnt necessarily mean you r very liked it could mean dat people are searching for you for all the wrong reasons.

    @MiMi, and why not express our opinions. For all u know, this list was composed by a human and can be erred. Honestly and frankly speaking, i think GC is always bringing Nadia before Jackie unfairly just to satisty Nadia’s fans. If Jackie were rated above Nadia, i bet u Nadia fans will get heart attacks and will abuse GC with all names so i think they want to avoid such acts from dullards.

    No need to b worried abt who is next to who, i dont tnk the list is in order of most searched on google they just put a list of gh celebs thats all. Shd it b in order it may always surprise u wat these polls bring abt, just cos a star mayb in the knw more than the other does not always mean that he/she will b the most searched. GHC can u pls clarify so ur users will knw if its order of who is 1st or just a compiled list. tnk u.

    It seems these are the only people who usually play lead characters in Ghanaian movies.So it’s obvious that they’re going to be the famous stars.I ‘m sick and tired of seeing their faces in every movie.We can start by casting the new ones alongside these ones so they can also get the exposure.We need new people on our screens.Mo ma yen nipa foforo aba!!!

    Angle God bless you. You know as for ghanaians they don’t appreciate their stars ooo, but in nigeria u guys adore your stars its not like that in ghana at all. Ghanaians are mean people and very envious people. Congrats to jackie magid nadia and the rest of u.

  • vida

    Hannah its true I noticed ghanaians don’t appreciate their stars here. I’m from zambia and nigeria, from where I come from even if u don’t like the celebrity u would rain praises on the fellow to an outsider. But I noticed the ghanaians are bitter people and always wants someones downfall. Anyway the people of zambia are in love with u jackie appiah where can I find you? And congrats to nadia van and co.

    @vida,I don’t think you can form an opinion about a nation or people based on what a section of them maybe less than 20% of them say on a website or a forum. A majority of users of this website in making  comments like me use  pseudonyms,how do you know they are all Ghanaians. What you just said is just an open statement with no evidence to back your saying. Wake up hon,this is the internet,anybody could pose as Ghanaian.

    @goodies, you are a million times right and she will remain that local CHAMP, she can never in anyway be in NADIAS LEVEL FOREVER.

    Janus Reply:

    @akua, you r very funny. Jackie has acted more movies than Nadia, Jackie is the highest paid Ghanaian actress, has won much more awards than Nadia and has more endorsements than Nadia. She even has foreign endorsements so who is more international? Speak the truth and stop being sentimental. Nadia’s only foreign endorsement is Glo for which Jackie and Van r also ambassadors and r selling much much better than Nadia. Nadia is rather the local champ and should thank her father for using his influence in the industry to sell her, she is just an average girl with no talent, riding on her dad’s influence.

    @akua, which level. Jackie’s levels r far far beyond Nadia’s. Which level r we talking here, lies, being a lesbian /having a bisexual as  best friend or not clinching an international award. R u in ur natural/right senses at all. just define the levels or achievements that u r talking about. Ur write up makes me sick and nauseous. baseless and non creative.

Look at the times too. Lol, and all the producers always say jackie is the person they buy her movies the most in america and uk that is why they use her. Example check out Perfect Picture. It sold like hell in ghana and the premier in the uk was sold out bcos everyone wanted to see jackie. Let’s look at Checkmate how many copies did it sell here how many people talked about it and the premier in the uk was not full. Even the nigerians say samething with their movies. But I’m a majid fan I love him and I think he is the best actor in ghana

    @desmond, and who does the Bible say is the tail. Nadia is a big liar and has been bashed and disgraced internationally. She doesn’t even deserve to be on this list. The Bible condemns lies if u must know. honestly, aside van, Jackie and Majid are 10 times more popular than Nadia. Yvonne Nelson and John Dumelo r even more popular than Nadia these days.

    how can it be said that because people search for you on google, you are famous. it shoud be the other way round. why should someone look for information on you if you are famous. everything about famous people is known. it is when you are not so famous that people will google for more info on you! I only google people i know nothing about, in that sense, they cannot be famous!

    [Reply]

    nancy Reply:

    @Kwadwo, if jackie is leading the list will you have said that?which ever you look at it idont think one will like to know about his or her enemy or even look his way ,the ABITTER THRUTH is that whether good or bad NADIA REIGNS PERIOD.

    @nancy,

    i never mentioned anybody’s name so why assume I would have been happy with Nadia being on top. What I am saying is regardless of who is in top, I think the basis of assessing one’s popularity with how often he/she is searched on google is misplaced. that was the object of my post. I don’t care who is first or last. I believe the index is wrong!

    [Reply]

    Ellis Reply:

    @nancy, and why should we believe Nadia is more famous? Even u know in ur heart that Jackie is more famous. Jackie has international endorsements and her movies sell more than Nadia’s so this is common sense. Even if Nadia was googled more in UK and US, it was probably because of the lies she told about a famous US designer. She lied about wearing Oscar De La Renta gown and it made wave everywhere so people there may just google to see who the shameless liar is. I don’t even think anybody there knew Nadia prior to the scandal she created. So she wasn’t searched because they know her or anything but because the designer came public to shame her which is a great disgrace to her ,her family and Ghana. And how can we say she is more popular cos a couple of people googled her a day or two. Abegi, let us have the percentages of them in Africa and outside so we can add.

    @ebenezer, don’t mind that fucked up nigga called goodies. Because Nadia was rated above Jackie, he believes it cos he taught God compiled the list but anytime Jackie is rated above Nadia, they say GC is favoring her, kissing her ass etc. They r deluded and truly blind. They r happy cos they wish Nadia is more popular and since it came this way, they accepted and believed it one time. Nadia can never  ever be more popular than Jackie. Even with her scandals and jilts by men.
