Hello GhanaCelebrities.Com,

First of all, let me congratulate the minds behind this informing and educative Ghanaian online platform-GhanaCelebrities.Com. I am so much late in finding this Blog as I only stumbled upon it last Friday during my search for the latest Ghanaian movie stories to help me with a project.

So far my weekend has been amazing since I have spent hours upon hours reading through some of the interesting articles (especially Ghana Movies related articles) and comments on here. I did not know such a platform which documents in detail developments in the Ghanaian Entertainment Industry exists.

After going through several pages and comments, I have come to quickly realize how much some of the visitors/readers of this website are undermining the achievements of tall standing Actresses like Jackie Appiah and Ama K. Abebrese.

It seems pure hate is constantly being channelled towards these two achieving women especially Jackie Appiah who has won Best Actress-both Africa and Ghana (African Movie Awards and Ghana Movie Awards). Currently, who can be compared to such a talent in the Ghanaian movie industry?

Ama K. Abebrese on the other hand in months after joining the industry fought her way to Africa to win Africa’s Best Actress Award, throwing the likes of Genevieve Nnaji straight into the gutters! What is more of an achievement than this? What were those who have been in the industry for donkey years doing? Showing their pretty selves on screens I guess.

Why is it that, Ghanaians especially readers of this platform seem to find it difficult to accord these two hard working ladies the necessary respect and support? Those with talent and the edge to work forward must be encouraged and supported and not those who are simply in movies because of their looks!

This brings me to land on Yvonne Nelson and Nadia Buari. I am in no way saying they have not contributed to the well-being of the Ghanaian movie industry but their achievements, talent and works can in no way be measured against the above mentioned Actresses.

This is a simple now and future question. Have Nadia Buari and Yvonne Nelson ever won any Best Actress award before? The correct answer is NO!

Let’s look at the future question…Can Nadia Buari or Yvonne Nelson ever win any Best Actress award? The answer is probably NO. Why then don’t we celebrate and respect those who have achieved greatness with their works and talent?

As I mentioned, there is a huge gap between talent and beauty. Our Ghanaian movie industry needs the former and not the latter. Let’s celebrate the achievers and rally behind them.
