“This has rendered most of us jobless and even affected our performance at award schemes. For two years now, Ghana hasn’t made any meaningful impact at the AMAAs and AMVCAs.

The award-winning fashion icon, Nana Akua added that, “I was at the AMVCAs this year and we didn’t pick even a single award. This is the reality we are facing now. This inspired me to build my brand around fashion and I haven’t regretted toeing that path”.

 

The mother-of-two revealed that she has found a new passion for fashion that is promoting her brand in Ghana and across Africa.

“I had been acting for so many years but it didn’t pay off that much until I found my new love in fashion. It has brought me a lot of attention in the industry that acting didn’t bring and it is paying more for me”.

Nana Akua who has featured in movies such as Destiny’s Child, Blood, Wanna Be, Rain, Speechless, Never Again, Anokwa and Tears said she is happy about actors becoming producers.

 

According to her, this has also become necessary because of the dwindling fortunes of the movie industry and applauded her colleagues who have taken the bold step to own their productions.
