Ama K Abebrese Stripped Out Of Upcoming Ghana Movie Awards’ Discovery Of The Year Nomination: A Big Fraud Or A Genuine Mistake…

Information reaching GhanaCelebrities.Com has it that, the “Sinking Sands” lead-Ama K Abebrese who was announced as a nominee under the “Discovery Of The Year” category and “Best Actress In A Leading Role” for the upcoming Ghana Movie Awards has been stripped of her former nomination.( She was the only Actress nominated in two categories)

When I contacted Ama K to ascertain the credibility of this information, she confirmed the stripping and tagged it as “unfortunate”.

According to the “Sinking Sands” star, she was called yesterday by the organizers of the Awards who said, they mistakenly included her as a nominee in the “Discovery Of The Year” category and as such her name will be excluded from that category on the final day of the Awards.

I have followed several awards that roots from Ghana for years and I am immeasurably aware of the various corruption and sabotage that exist in most of these Awards.

I am not insinuating any mischief since this can be a “honest” mistake but this is Ghana we are talking about, everything is possible even right below your nose.

What baffles my mind most is the fact that, the Awards’ organizers themselves sent out the nominations to the various Media Houses which has since been in the public domain. How on earth are they going to rectify their so called “mistake” days after publications and celebrations?

What if Ama K Abebrese has already called her family out of joy to inform them of the honour done her? How is she going to tell them of this mistake?

On a serious note, if the Actress is good enough to fit the “Best Actress In A Leading Role” category and she was literally discovered this year, what makes it not right for her to befit the “Discovery Of The Year” category?

If the organizers want to cultivate some sort of credibility for this annual “Ghana Movie Awards”, then they better start today and drift themselves away from such “Mistakes”.  Now, who else will they say was mistakenly put in a category? Juliet Ibrahim or who?

  1. Eii Ghanaians, they have started again. We can never had any award organized fairly. I think this is not any mistake. Some people are behind this. Ghana for you that.

  4. THE NOMINATIONS FOR THE AWARDS WERE JUST A MESS
    AMA IS AWESOME AND SO IS SINKING SANDS BUT AS FAR AS I KNOW THE FILM DOESNT FIT INTO THIS YEARS ELIGIBILITY PERIOD, SO NOTHING ABOUT SINKING SANDS UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD BE NOMINATED THIS YEAR, INSTEAD THEY SHOULD BE NOMINATED NEXT YEAR WERE THEY FIT THE ELIGIBLITY PERIOD.
    HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO RESPECT AN AWARDS SHOW WERE JULIET IBRAHIM IS NOMINATED FOR BEST ACTRESS
    THEY DIDNT EVEN KNOW WERE TO PUT PEOPLE,THEY ENDED UP PUTTING LEAD ACTORS IN THE SUPPORTING ACTOR AND ACTRESS CATEGORIES.
    JUST ONE BIG HOT MESS.

    • Just like the Guba awards in London. People organise awards to give it to their friends. I mean AMA is no actress, merely a presenter. Yet still. She has been nominated for a movie award. Come on. If we want people to respect our film industry. We need to start looking at real talent. Not people that believe in their own hype. AMA has done well hyping herself with her people. But let’s just look at real talent. Ghana has many. AMA isn’t one if them. 

      Thank you for this post. Ghana at it’s best

      • @Akua Osei, wow so Jamie Foxx is not actor and did not deserve the oscar or Three6Mafia did not deserve the oscar because they are not from the typical hollywood line up of acting/composing pedigree. Wake up chile,

        in today’s film industry you need a triple threat and Ama K fits that mold

        • @Kin, i know right. look at Gabriel Sidibe, this girl has no acting background whatsoever but her movie “precious” was nominated for many awards in which she won some. Plus it was her first movie too and she got a lot of recognition from it. People were amaze by the fact that she was able to take on that role with no acting background. So yeah all this Ama is “mere presenter” is not necessary because everyone can become a great actor and win awards regardless. while I believe acting is a gift for some folks, I also believe that everyone can become great actor with the right coaching and the right directors. correct me if i’m wrong but Ama’s first and only movie sinking sands and she nailed it. Most of our so-called popular actors wasn’t able to achieve what Ama has in their first or perhaps all their movies up to date. She can totally out-act most of the actors we have in the industry now without a doubt. Give her a few years, more movies and we have a movie star.

  8. I really dont get these so called actors/ actress, everyone wakes up and call themselves an actress, dont get me wrong Ama K has done well for herself, films like Abrochire beyie and british born are absolute nonsense, “The actress Alexis Nksiakoh cant act, as a ghanaian living in ghana i believe that we should give honour to those who really deserves it. Just because ghanaians from overseas, come to ghana and speak with better accents we have to treat them better than those here KMT

    • @Maame Oboshie, naa naa this has nothing to do with ghanaians overseas. A great actor is a great actor no matter where they live.
      correct me if im wrong but are you saying that an actor living in ghana who can’t act to save his or her life is more deserving of the award than a great actor from overseas? If that is the case, then british and african actors from overseas in america cannot receive any awards in america because they are not from there or hasn’t been living there enough. Most of our so-called ghanaian actors residing in ghana cannot act to save their life and you want them to get all the awards because they’ve been living in ghana all their whole lives? that don’t make no sense to me. Like I said a great actor is a great actor no matter where they come from. Our local actors aren’t doing any good to our industry so why not bring in change. Just like you said some of the overseas actors cannot act, so are our local actors. They sucks big time. look at the movies and actors that came out of our industry this year, embarrassing. They are nothing to write home about. If you are to be honest with yourself, what ghanaian actor do you think
      can act along side vivica fox or angela bassett and out act them? None of them come even close to a hollywood material not even our so-called popular actors. They can only dream an impossible dream. We are so consumed with the cheap local acting that we don’t see great acting when we see one. I get really embarrass by our industry. Not too many young boys and girls dreams about being in a ghanaian movie industry. Everybody wants to go international like hollywood. My point is, Ama is good and for that reason deserve an award whether she’s from overseas or not. Afterall she was in a ghanaian movie..thanks

      • @nanayaa, let be fair sinking sand must not come into the awards ,they made a mistake and they have corrected their mistake peace…..n those who say only those who come from abroad are treated good,lem give you this info too,those who also visit us here from ghana are also treated good.so is normal to act thats way when you see a new person or a visitor .

        • @27 calibre, ya you are right sinking sands shouldn’t be part of this years awards. I wasn’t opposing to that but I was only correcting maame obooshie about the special attention she thinks the ghana movie industry gives to ghanaians overseas. lol it took me an essay to make my point because when it comes to our industry i dont play. I want to see serious change

  12. So then what were the organisers thinking when they nominated her?I know for sure that some people were against her nomination.Ok, so If Ama K has been stripped off then I dont see why Juliet still remains in there. Anyway Ama K, dont worry, just believe everything happens for a reason.
