First of all, let me make it clear that I respect both Martha Ankomah and Lydia Forson for their talent—therefore using their unfortunate situations as a case study does not have any element of contempt.
I met Martha Ankomah somewhere last year at Alisa Hotel, Accra and she was full of positive energy and smiles. Similarly, Lydia Forson has a great personality and an extensive realistic view on several world issues, though some are unnecessarily entrenched. I have had some great conversations with her in the past and as a Nigerian will say ‘I respect her hustle’.
Now that the above has been made clear, let’s look at how our actors/actresses can make the best out of their talent, passion and craft without falling into the African disease pot of “being everywhere but known for nothing great”.
The Over-commercialization of Martha Ankomah Being a Taint on Her Talent
If you’ve seen any of Martha Ankomah’s movies, you would notice that despite the fact that she is always surrounded by several talentless actors/actresses, her raw excellence consistently stands out.
Martha Ankomah is a great actress at the raw state and needed rough edge touches by some of the great Directors who have clear understanding of film-making but she couldn’t wait for this to happen. She couldn’t say ‘NO’ to some of the most senseless scripts and literally took up every offer that came her way.
We are seeing the end result today, which is; Martha Ankomah has countless movies to her but none does justice to her immense talent. She is not regarded in any different light; she is just like the many ‘can’t act’ actresses we see on our screens daily.
Over-commercialization has killed her talent, vision and the chance of becoming one of Ghana’s greatest.
I am sure she has over 100 movies to her name but which one can we remember as a great piece? (more…)
Martha Ankomah is one of the few Ghanaian actresses whose talent is grossly undermined. For some reason, there is little or no hype surrounding her career and talent—even though she deserves it more than many of those getting it…
Even if you are not impressed by her acting, the fact that she has kept her skin tone natural—in the face of the changing complexion of her colleagues should be a reason for you to admire her.
And did you know she had such nice legs?

Malta Guinness has launched a new Pan African project, Africa Rising campaign. Five personalities will lead the campaign to inspire African youth to rise and shine.
They are Joy FM’s Senior International Correspondent, Jefferson Sackey, fashion designer; Kofi Okyere-Darko (KOD), blogger-Ameyaw Debrah, Actress-Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku and Jeremie Van-Garshong, Live FM and 4Syte TV presenter.
The icons will campaign and encourage Ghanaian youth to aspire to greater heights through a comprehensive television, radio and print media campaign to be rolled out soon across Africa.
Also gracing the event movie were stars Juliet Ibrahim and Martha Ankomah.
Are the two besties? I doubt so since Martha Ankomah rolls like Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. If you guys do not know, despite her nude and bad girl screen characters, Martha Ankomah can be said to be the most religious Ghanaian actress…I am sure she will claim to still be virgin.
And with Efya still smoking her stuff, we are sure they are not best mates, pretending for the camera on set!
Anyway, check out their pose…
Though it seems Eazzy is promoting her boobies (that is what I thought when I saw the first photo), it turned out that she is rather promoting her new single-Scream. I guess the side attraction does the the magic.
Actress Martha Ankomah must have also realized that she is slagging when it comes to the celebrity promo photos. Few hours ago, she shared the below photos…
Martha Ankomah hardly does all the countless promo photo shoots that some of our celebrities do so you hardly see new photos of her, except when GhanaCelebrities.Com catches her at an event…
With her beauty and banging body, we will love to see more photos of her! And for those who love chocolate, she has kept her chocolate complexion far away from the numerous bleaching creams in our markets!
I am not sure what was going on inside Martha Ankomah’s
hair head. The fact that you can afford it does not mean you should use it all when you buy the pack sweety…LOL
She looks beautiful but that hair comes across as TOO much and a lil heavy for me.
And Nana Ama McBrown must be keeping some weight loss secret. She has lost so much weight within a short period of time—making her look super sexy and young. Sell the secret as Jennifer Hudson did honey!
The campaign to get our local stars to have confidence and see glamour in our local African fabrics seems to be getting into the minds of some…
Yesterday, we looked at how Solange Knowles has been parading various African prints on several red carpets around the world. (Click Here To Read).
We do not have to let ‘foreigners’ tell us how prestigious our African fabrics are; by wearing them before we join the train.
So far this year, some of our top female Ghanaian movie stars have given the local fabrics a try…
One thing you need to have to get it right when you are wearing an African fabric is CONFIDENCE. You must first of all have confidence in yourself and also the attire you are rocking…
Self confidence in this situation can be spotted by looking at the body posture, facial expressions and how loud an individual looks in a particular dress.
Looking at the photos below of the Ghanaian celebrities who have in the last few months tried the local fabrics, who do you think has the Confidence and Glamour? Who do you think rocked it perfect? Who gives the fabric a perfect definition and style?
Over the weekend in Accra-Ghana, American rapper Bow Wow and Keri Hilson headlined the Gh Stand Up Concert which was supported by several local artistes such as Guru, Edem, Buk Bak and others…
Ghanaian movie stars-Nadia Buari, Martha Ankomah and Majid Michel came out to enjoy good music…
Nadia Buari is doing great with her recent hair styles. I love this new hair do! And for the past 2 months, Majid has been wearing those ‘thick vest’ on his shirts. Not sure whether it is the new style in Ghana, but I am sure he must be heating up his body.
