The Ghana Movie Awards 1 Car For 4 Actresses Saga: Legally, The Actresses Cannot Sell The Parked Car After The Year If…

I had a brief catch up with the founder of the Ghana Movie Awards “Mr Fred Nuamah” last Thursday in London when he was passing through to Ghana. As curious as I am, I asked him the state of affairs with the 1 car for the 4 Best Actresses “Jackie Appiah, Roselyn Ngissah, Juliet Ibrahim and Yvonne Okoro” saga.

Fred Nuamah told me the car is still parked at the Golden Tulip Hotel awaiting the decision of the above 4 Actresses. Since we were having just a friendly dialogue, we switched to other industry developments and for some reason, my mind did not consider the legal implication of the decision taken by the 4 Actresses to wait for the lapse of the one year and then proceed to “maybe” sell the car at that time.

From what I know, there was a restraining clause in the Founder’s Merit car “Give Away” which stipulated that, inter alia, the car cannot be sold until a year of usage by the winners have lapsed.

I have not had the opportunity to look at the actual wording of this restraining clause but reasonably, I think the Ghana Movie Awards Organizers wanted the car to be used by the 4 Actresses as a brand car which will be seen driven around and showcase the Movie Awards to some extent.

I am aware that, the 4 Actresses seem to think that, they can leave the car parked and after a year of the “no sale restraining clause” passing, they can then proceed to sell the car and do whatever they deem fit with the returns.

The above sounds like a perfect work out plane since they cannot decide on who to use the car or draw up a reasonable schedule as to share usage of the car.

Legally, they are doomed with that plan. They do not stand the chance to have the car if they do not use the car as stated in the contract for a year. The year of usage I believe runs from when the car starts to be used (being sufficiently driven) and does not include substantial times of parking.

I am dying to see how things will turn out when the 1 year lapses. I would be happy to see the Ghana Movie Awards organizers claiming full possession of the car for breach of major term in their agreement over a considerable period of time.

There is an adage in Akan which says “ se wo ani te pii ah, you turn to greet the goat”. The 4 Actresses stand to loose the car and It will server as a good precedent if the Ghana Movie Awards organizers pull this smart legal stand on them. Let’s  wait to see how this turns out for the parties…

Leave the gals alone..if 4 were supposed 2 sign the contract n 3 were allowed 2 sign,it means they(the 3) can still act on it.since they so signed in the interest of the sponsers without eni conditions placed on the contract by virtue of Jackie’s absence …i wud rather they sold it than use it in turns…or better still take it to “abosey okai” for sharing of the parts..1 FOR 4..arhhhh

They could have given them other gifts. Like  some 82 inch plasma TV or something rather that buying one car for 4 people.

lol…poor roselyn ngissah!

akosuaghana says:

From what I read here, Jackie did not opt out of the car, all she said is doing is opting out of the decision making on what to do with the car. She still has interest in the car but not in the decision making.

Which means, whatever decision the 3 girls will make, she will concord. So apart from even the fact that the car has not been used which means they can’t owe the car as Chris explained, the contract is not even effective since only 3 has signed. Jackie has not signed yet

ladygaga says:

akosua,thanks for explaining it in better english for that idiot Ama of a human being who seem not to have her senses in long as she doesn’t sign no decision can be made.this is simple grammar and i bet you wish you were half as pretty or wise as julit ibrahim and the other 2girls madam jackie appiah,stop hating cus no matter what ama jackie appiah,we all know u are wicked and selfish.stop finding people to blame for your wickedness and black heart.fool

Ama says:

Lady Gaga which station, tell us date and time, Juliet Ibrihim stop fooling yourself we all know you are laygaga, Even you came on this site with your interview that since Jackie has opted out is left with they three of you. Jackie God loves you and 99% of Ghanaians love you and we know they 4 of you can not share the car is very good you opted out. God bless

ladygaga says:

ladygaga says:

lmfao.@ ama the same jackie went on air and said she didnt say she opted out;i quote from her interview; ”i havent opted out,i just want my friends to make the decision and i will gladly join when it is time to sell the car.”
ama what do u understand by this statement?isnt it selfishness?knowing your colleagues especially roselyn needs the car yet u deprive her of it?

solo says:

opting isnot all to it. let her sign thecontract and leave. its a giftf for 4persons not 3. easy. hehehehehe

Ama says:

Jackie don’t worry we will always love you, if this people say they have not seen the story that you opted out of the car,and this is part of what I read on this site months ago. ” since the 4 of us can not drive the car and can not sale it I opt out and left everything for my three sisters. Jackie God richly bless

Dela says:

This is fun, this is the site I read that Jackie in an interview has opted out of the car. Why will anyone wait for her. I read everything on this site. Jackie don’t worry God loves you.

akosua says:

Jackie Appiah has opted out of the Car, so three girls should use it. I read in all the papers. In Ghana, including Showbiz. That she opted out why are forcing her to take a car she said she doesn’t want.

kaf says:

can Chris tell his friend jackie to sign the contract? We are waiting for u

mother says:

lol ….are they friends ? then hmmm …this is then something else ….

Author: Gossip Mama says:

Surely they will cannot get the car. I am even informed that, 4 people won and 4 people had to sign the contract. 3 of the girls (Juliet, Roselyn and Okoro ) signed the contract at the time of the presentation. Up to today, Jackie has not even signed the contract which therefore means, the contract to owe the car is not even full yet. Oh !

jane says:

hmmm, jackie the end justifies the means be careful what you are doing today will come back to you someday. so search your heart.

jane says:

jackie is just a pretty hypocrite who does not want anything good for her colleagues.selfish person.

ladygaga says:

That’s a good article,and legally they wouldn’t get the car!all thanks to almighty jackie appiah who refused to plan with her colleagues and made them to feel like they are nobody’ss and she is a somebody!very wicked girl she is,whilst her colleague roselyn does not even own a car!
