These 20 Ghanaian Movie Stars Rocked The 90’S And Early 2000’S With Their Movies

Growing up in Ghana, there was not much to watch.

Programs like By The Fire Side, Akan Drama, Fun Times were our only option. TV was boring and there were not much local movies for consumption.

But these stars you are about to see stood up and made the 90’s and 2000’s worth living with their awesome talents and the movies they worked on. Before the John Dumelo’s and Yvonne Nelson’s, they were the real deal in acting.

 

Brew Riverson Junior
