Adjetey ‘Pusher’ Anang Thinks Lydia Forson, Yvonne Okoro & Nadia Buari Are Ghana’s Current Best Actresses, Not Jackie Appiah

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.

      • @SWEET,Hey lovely people, I hardly make comments here but it has become necessary to correct a few points regarding my interview with Ghana Celeb. ON MY OPINION ON GHANA”S BEST ACTRESS! Honestly part of  what i said was reported however some were not reported. To be fair some interpretation given above was not what i said or was clearly misunderstood. When questioned, i made it clear that Jackie was indeed Ghana’s ‘Grandmama’ (Guru) in acting (female), and indicated for that matter that i could not even bring her into this assessment -a Legend, my legend if you will, in Ghana’s acting world- however i thought that the likes of Yvonne Okoro, Lydia Forson and Nadia Buari are some of the best actresses we have in the country. Certainly Lydia Forson has been one of my favourites and the fact that i perhaps dwelt a bit on that part of the interview takes nothing away from the brilliance we see from the rest. I believe the heading above sends wrong signals which i thought wise to make clear. Thanks lovely people. God bless.

        • @Adjetey Anang,You IMPLIED that Jackie Appiah is not one of the best actors in Ghana in the interview. You were kind with your words. I happen to think that she is HIGHLY OVERATED and a PAIN TO WATCH. You are right in your assessment. Stick to it and don’t come here trying to polish what you meant. Those of us who speak the truth know she has never been a good actress. She just happens to belong to a certain ethnic group that will promote their own regardless of whether she is  deserving or not. Yes, I said it. Let the sky fall down. I am sick of seeing her 2nd rate performances and the annoying part is she is on every other movie cover. And she cannot act. No wonder outsiders think our industry is a JOKE. She is a pretty lady and that is all. She does NOT belong in front of a camera. Lydia, and Yvonne are far better. And tell Jackie to stop smiling so damn hard…it will not make her any good at what she does. My 4 cents.

          • @GoldenGrul, jackie is the reigning star In ghana for so many years and is still shining. Nadia to is good but yvonne okoro is wasting the producers money because I think she Is so annoying to watch my kid brother cries when we put her movie in or sees her image my dad falls asleep when watching a movie she Is in and my mother has warned us not to buy Yvonne  movie. So my aunt makes it a point to grab jackie or Majids movie or Genevieve.

          • @moki, darling one lovin u for one thin..u said da truth and nothing else..we all no those ppl covering her ass.she cant act period….

          • @ pusher do you no the meaning of veteran? Go back to school. Between you and jackie who is a veteran. It’s obvious you are fustrated. Is Yvonne and Lydia up to Nadias level, hell no. Yvonne can’t  act to save her life she is fake and stiff and walks as if her butt itches. And before I forget jackie apiah is a versatile actress and a wonderful actress u and your concubines Lydia and Yvonne should learn a few acting techniques from.

        • @Adjetey Anang, how dare u open your mouth and talk about a multiple award winner like JACKIE APPIA. You pusher started when Thursday theater was airing way back and till date you don’t have a trophy in your house to account for your many years in this industry. Jackie came to meet you in this industry yet what she has achieved u haven’t achieved quarter. And you have the effrontery to compare Lydia Forson and yvone okoro to a Super Star like Jackie Appiah who is adored all over the world.

      • @SWEET, yvonne was sleepin with my cousins girlfriend in school I wonder if she is still a lesbian. adjetey nadia and lydia are ok jackie  is the best and is the number 1 actress in ghana. the first name you you would hear  right from kotoka is jackie appiah if you  are to ask a immigration officer. and okoro is not a actress  she is so stiff

      Reply
    • @kk,Someone said jackie played her role so well in death after birth and no actress in ghana could have played it the way jacky did. You are so right on that and I agree with you. But that girl Yvonne is a annoying actress my video library in my hood don’t even sell her movies because  they complain that know body buys her movies in their shop. So if u go there you won’t see a single movie of hers.

         Kwame Bonso Reply:October 10th, 2011 at 04:[email protected], Moki u are are dumb just like adjetey . Jackie is the most awarded actress in ghana. Every year Appiah is nominated even if she doesn’t win she is like merle Streep she must be nominated every year. The people you mentioned adjetey hardly gain nominations let alone walk home with an award. Even u adjetey have you ever won an award before even john dumelo, Majid and van vicker haven’t made this kind of statement before. When did u come u even started acting before jackie was born but she has come to overpass you. Then u have the nerve to compare the worst actress in gollywood Yvonne okoro to a legend like JACKIE. U must be mad adjetey Annan.   (Quote)[Reply]

    • @kk,Okoro Yvonne is garbage or locally said bola. And anyone who says Yvonne is good on this forum  is as dumb and stupid as the Ajetey boy , who has acted over a decade and is now gaining small popularity after a decade or more. Is simply cursed. This boy is so confused.

      • @Hanna,yvonne okoro is one actress who surely doesn’t have a future in the industry. She tries so hard to be more than Yvonne Nelson and tries to hard to act like jacky. She is a nasty actress also ugly with her fake lashes and multi colored skin and lastly nothing to worry your head about trust me.

  3. Jackie Appiah has been giving many awards world wide so people everywhere no that she is good. Film critics even day jackie appiah is the most versatile actresses in africa and that there is no actress in Ghana who could have executed the role jackie played in Death after birth like she did.

    Reply
    • @Hanna, I agree with you because I was in a car oneday coming back from from work and heard them saying that there is no actress in ghana who van play the tough roles jackie gets. No wonder she is on her way to Hollywood. So Adjetey doesn’t know what he is talking about he should shut the fuck up.

  4. I agree with Jackie not beeing the BEST actress in Ghana. I don’t even think she should be considered veteran actress because she has not reach that level yet. Jackie is not all that bad but she is definately not the BEST actress in Ghana.Lydia Forson and Yvonne Okoro are the BESt actress for me in Ghnana. If you are looking for a veteran actresses in Ghana then you should be looking for Edinam Atatsi, Akorfa Ejeni A, Pascline Edwards, Rama Brew, Kalsum Sinare Baffour, and many more. Madam Grace Nortey is the Grand Mama of the Ghana movie industry…………period.:):):)

    • Most of the ghanaians actresess are all untalented anyway, the guys have potential, its only in ghana n nigeria that they will get gigs, they should thank the stars that ghanaians n some carribeans abroad are buying their movies, but still agya koo movies sell faster than the ones with their fake accents n what not.

    • @lilyy, because adjetey was sleeping with Yvonne in bed of roses set that is why he added her name. I was on the set and can remember how long it took Yvonne okoro to get her lines. And she kept doing it over and over, I was so pissed off because she was wasten we the extras time. She and adjetey were always in a room together doing god nos what. Only the two lovebirds can explain that. Nadia is good jackie to is a fantastic actress and a versatile actress most  actress in this country are not versatile even me but I’m learning from people like jackie, Majid and omotola and Genevieve and RMD

  17. all of us here in new-york know about jackie being the best actress in your ghana country. as for anang, he is just jealous. and also she dresses as an african. because she does not wear hollywood style does not mean that she cannot dress. we all like the way she dresses. peace.

    • @papa s,Adjete Anang is a guy.Jackie is a woman. They are both in the same industry and He is not jealous. He is not fighting with her over shoes or clothing for goodness sake. The man is saying what is glaringly obvious. There is nothing to be jealous over here. In fact this website has shown which side of the ethnic divide they stand on. Everybody who gives constructive criticism about Jackie is labelled jealous. It is another way Ghanaians effectively pull the veil of deception further over their eyes when they don’t want to hear the truth. The truth is Jackie Appiah is not a great actress. I cannot even say she is good. Not by far. She is just OK. She has got the media behind her, thanks to the fact that the people who ran the media are from her stock. Adjete is only saying what most Ghanaians and African film observers have been saying for years about Jackie. It did  not start today.The Nigerians have regretted bringing her into their industry! I can tell Jackie is of the same ethnicity as you. That is the reason you are behind her and that is all. And for that reason you will forever remain blind to her shortcomings as a professional actress. But please…. her supporters should not think we do not know great performers when we see them.

        • @ Mr. Kwame Bonso,You are the dumb one. 

          I repeat You Are the Dumb One. Adjete had an OPINION which he is entitlled to. My comment hit a nerve did it not? That  she has been awarded many awards year in year out does not mean she is good or great. She is being given awards by people who come from the same part of the nation that she does. Ever heard of nepotism?? We will never like or respect Jackie Appiah and her so called acting craft.  Look at the way she went and disgraced us in Nollywood. The Nigerian stars CONSTANTLY outshone her. She is quite popular.That I agree.  Made so by the Ghana media who are all once again FROM TE SAME PLACE SHE COMES FROM. Nepotism at work. 

          Adjete is a very good actor. He has not featured in many movies. That Jackie came to meet him in the industry is irrelevant. Ghanaians chose to promote Van Vicker and Majid above our own Black counterparts. Besides John Dumelo, which other dark skinned actor is well known in Ghana? Tell me. Please. Are they all dumb because Ghanaians chose to support light skinned people instead? Shame on you. 

          Dumb fucker!!!!

    “I cudnt av agreed more wif u adjetey, infact I’m wif tears. I’ve been constantly defending these three ladies n anyway gh movies is concerned. they r d best so far. jackie is over rated period. nadia buari opened d way 4 more recognition 2 gh movies n I give her credit 4 dat. forget dat devine love shit. it went not too far until mummys daughter and beyonce came out. give credit were itx due ghns. lydia is just natural. yvone, superb, nadia delivers.ha adzeeen.”

    AGREEEEED ALL THE WAY…its almost like u read my mind…divine love was a good movie but it didn’t take anywhere until mummy’s daughter and beyonce, which definitely pushed us…U SOO READ MY MIND
