Talented and versatile Ghanaian actor Adjetey Anang, mostly known as ‘Pusher’ due to a bad boy role he played in the television series ‘Things We Do For Love’ has swerved star actress Jackie Appiah in an interview with GhanaCelebrities.Com.
He swerved the star actress for Lydia Forson, Yvonne Okoro and Nadia Buari.
Always smiling Jackie Appiah won the ‘Best Actress’ Award at the 2010 edition of the Ghana Movie Awards but Adjetey Anang regards her as a veteran and not necessarily the best actress in Ghana.
Pusher acknowledged that Jackie can be considered as a veteran but he honestly feels the best actresses in Ghana now are Lydia Forson, Yvonne Okoro and Nadia Buari.
Yvonne Okoro co-won Ghana Movie Awards’ 2010 Best Actress Award with Jackie Appiah with two other actresses. Nadia Buari on the other hand isGhana’s current Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
For Lydia Forson, Adjetey concurred that though she has not been featured in lots of movies, she is one hell of a good actress. It also seems that, she is the only one Adjetey considers as the very best of the best.
“The best actress in Ghana… that will be difficult. I have always thought that Lydia Forson is one hell of a good actress. The only down thing about that is that, she has not been featured in so many movies, so we haven’t seen the other parts of her.” Pusher told GhanaCelebrities.Com.
He continued: “We have brilliants actresses like Yvonne Okoro; of course Jackie [Appiah] is a veteran. Nadia [Buari] as well. She is also a good actress.”
Pusher’s commentary seems to suggest that, Jackie Appiah who started acting before the other actresses has gathered enough experience to be tagged as a veteran.
Asked if calling Jackie a veteran means she is not one of the best actresses in Ghana… The La [badi] born actor replied “Just like Hip Life, I will call her [Jackie Appiah] a Grand Mama of the Movie Industry.
Adjetey Anang was economical with words when asked by GhanaCelebrities.Com to pick out of the 3 he mentioned, the one he considers as the best of all.
When pushed further, he said “Wow, you want to put me into trouble? I’m trying to get the soft spot with these three ladies [laughs], so it’s difficult for me to think of something but they are all brilliant.” He ended.
