After starring in some rather distasteful movies, Martha Ankomah has seen the light and is asking colleagues to shun such bad roles/movies
Ghanaian actress Martha Ankomah who is known for very seductive movie roles has called on her fellow actors to help flush out ‘bad movies’ in the society.
“Some of us can take a bold step and say this is not good and so we are not going to do it. And so, I’ve tried by the grace of God to reject a lot of these scripts and I see most of my colleges doing that so we can actually put good movies out there.”
The actress made the statement on Hitz FM when she was asked what she was bringing to her fans this year. She also said, "All the witchcraft, juju, whatever movies don’t help our nation, doesn’t help our society, it doesn’t help people and so if scripts like that come and I’m not showing up, people are like Martha is something.”
She added “Because anytime you interview most of these actors, they say I want to be in Hollywood but trust me; Hollywood is not doing something like this so let’s try and do movies that will take us there,”.
According to Joyonline, when she was asked what to do to flush out those ‘bad movies’, she said “It depends on the producers. When they come to me and I tell them I don’t really like the script, that you can change the script, you can even work on it, make it good…
“They tell me, Martha, it is selling ooo, this is what is selling so it depends on the producers and the marketers. It is selling, but I don’t want to be part of it”.
She also revealed that she will be shooting very good Christian movies with good moral values this year adding that she’s currently shooting a new movie which will be released soon.
