"In a country where most celebrities avoid straddling the line between showbiz and politics, the Ghanaian actress most recently caught the attention of the public and political elite when she co-launched a protest march -with celeb colleagues Lydia Forson and Sarkodie- against the power crisis in the country," The Africa Report writes.

 

Other stars who were acknowledged in the magazine include Ivorian footballer Didier Drogba, South African politician, Julius Malema and Nigeria's richest man, Aliko Dangote. 

The other two Ghanaians in the top-50 are writer/filmmaker, Nana Oforiatta-Ayim and Preacher and motivational speaker, Mensa Otabil.
