The debate on whether the Ghanaian movie industry is dead or not is still on so we cannot conclude that we no more have an industry in the country.
If indeed the film industry is not dead, then some actors are not waiting for that period before taking up other duties to make cash into their pockets. To make sure that they are still relevant in the country and also make a living, some actors have decided to venture into other businesses.
One area which has enjoyed the presence of most Ghanaian actors is TV presentation. Our screens have been flooded with actors hosting shows to entertain their fans since the movie business is not booming.
Today, Zionfelix.net gives you ten top Ghanaian actors who have turned TV show host.
Nana Ama McBrown
McBrown was the host of Aben show on UTV. After years of gracing the set of Aben show, she left the production house and has now started McBrown’s kitchen which airs on the same platform.
Kumawood star Matilda Asare replaced Nana Ama McBrown as host of Aben show when the latter said goodbye to the programme which now airs on Adom TV.
It looks like all the Kumawood actors want to be TV show hosts. Well, Emelia Brobbey is preparing to start her new programme on Adom TV called ‘Okukuseku’. Zionfelix.net has seen a promo of the show which will start airing soon.
Kwadwo Nkansah also has ‘Don’t Think Far News’, a comedy news on Adom TV.
Whilst Kwadwo Nkansah Lilwin is entertaining viewers of Adom TV, his colleague actor Akwasi Boadi known widely as Akrobeto is also on UTV with ‘The Real News’. Zionfelix.net has even seen a new promo of Akrobeto on Adom TV and we ask, how can one person have different programmes on different stations?
Top Ghanaian actress Yvonne Okoro on GH One TV also entertains viewers with ‘Dining With Cooks and Braggarts’. She host influential personalities to show their cooking skills.
Joselyn Dumas also joins Miss Okoro on Gh One TV with ‘Keeping It Real With Joselyn Dumas’.
Did you know that outspoken actress Efia Odo has also joined Kwese Sports morning show presenters? Well, Zionfelix.net can say that the entertainer real name Andrea Owusu joined the station weeks back.
It looks like all the actresses who are very close to movie producer, Shirley Frimpong-Manson, the COO of TV Africa are now on TV. Aside, Okoro and Dumas, Nikki Samonas is also now one of the three female hosts of TV Africa’s morning show, BreakfastLive. You can watch her every weekday.
Gloria Osei Sarfo
Miss Osei Sarfo started hosting TV3’s Music Music but is now with Angel TV making sure their twinovela, Madhubala chatroom is fun to watch.
