THE ARKWARD AND NOT SO ARKWARD MOMENTS YOU MISSED AT GMA 2013

ghana movie awards winners (17)

Iron ladies of Ghanaian cinema, Shirley and Leila share award for best directing..looks like they didn’t expect a joint win

Owwww, Ahhhh! these were certainly were some arkward moments at the just ended  Ghana Movie Awards. Seriously, those moments got me shifting my seat. In Ameyaw debrah ‘s words  the event on Monday was full of drama. The entire show appeared scripted to ‘unite’ perceived factions in the Ghana Movie industry. From Leila Djansi and Shirley Frimpong-Manso sharing the nod for Best Director award which was presented by Akorfa Ejeani Asiedu (who has been involved in a very public split with Leila) to Sandra Ankobiah presenting the award for Favouirte Actress to her former BFF, Yvonne Nelson, it was clear that the organizers wanted to make a statement.  The award also suffered some hitches including calling out wrong winners in wrong categories.Leila Djansi was the biggest winner for the night sweeping home eight (8) awards with her new movie-“Northern Affair.” Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s collaboration with Yvonne Okoro on the movie-“Contract” got two awards. Yvonne Nelson’s “House of Gold” also took home two awards.

With that see all the arkward moments in pictures+ more. Do we are hear some ” owwwwww…”

The story in Potomanto is about an angry ex-police officer turned private investigator, Adane (Adjetey Annang) who is cheated on by his girlfriend (Yvonne Okoro) and makes it his mission to catch cheating women. He is hired by a wealthy Nigerian businessman, Bankole (Olu Jacobs) to spy on Susan (Marie Humbert) his young wife.

Things take a different twist however when Adane begins to uncover a series of bizarre murders of seemingly young hustlers that live in the community and they all have one thing in common. Soon the plot begins to manifest that the pursuit of greener pastures has developed into a diabolical plot of illegal organ harvesting.

What follows is a terrifying race against time where two people from the opposite sides of the law must face horrific dangers in an attempt to stop the canker that is annihilating an entire generation!

YVONNE OKORO WANTS AN AFRICA MAGIC VIEWERS’ CHOICE AWARD BADLY

Posted on Updated on

Image

Well, there is nothing wrong with wanting something badly. All of us do at some point in our lives. The Ghanaian actress’ movie, ‘Contract’ has picked multiple nominations for the 2014 AMVCAs.

‘Contract’, directed by Shirley Frimpong Manso, picked nine nominations – beating other giant Ghanaian movies.

Actress Yvonne Okoro has promised not to disappoint Ghanaians at the 2014 edition of the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award (AMVCAs).

Earlier on in the year the same movie picked six nominations at the Africa Movie Academy Award (AMAA) but could not win a single award at the main event. But it looks like this time Yvonne Okoro has faith in her movie.

In a very optimistic reply she said at nominees’ party which coincided with Africa Magic’s 10th anniversary celebration at Land Mark Village Center Victoria Island, Lagos.: “Well, in every competition there’s a victor, so it would be great if I win but in the end being nominated is a great achievement. It’s my first movie and every time I submit to a film festival it is received well. Do I have hope? (laugh) of course, because what’s life without hope?”

The AMVCA is organized annually by multichoice Africa( this being its second edition) to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution made by Pan Africa filmmakers. The party was hosted by Vimbai Mutinhiri, Lawrence Maleka and Big Brother Africa’s IK Osakioduwa. Guests at the party included Majid Michel, Uche Jombo, OC Ukeje, Linda Edjiofo, Sandra Ankobiah, Joselyn Dumas, Leonora Okine and other personalities.

There were drama displays, comedy and music performances by artists including Efya.

Yvonne got nominated for Best Actress in a comedy, while ‘Contract’ lead actor Hlomia Dandala received two nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy and Best Actor in a Drama. The rest of the nominations are Best Video Editor, Best Art Director, Best Writer (Drama), Best Movie Director, Best Movie 2013 and Best Movie (Comedy). Other Ghanaian nominees include Frank Rajah Arase, Chris Attoh, Ken Attoh, Shirley Frimpong-Manso, Pascal Amanfo, Jackie Appiah and Majid Michel. Let just hope her colleagues are half as optimistic as she is.

SPARROW PRODUCTION UNVEILS THE 4 BIG CHICKS IN THEIR NEST: A NEW MOVIE, A NEW LOGO, ADAMS APPLES SEASON 2 DVD , SPARROW STATION& A SHORT FILM

Posted on

If you have been following Sparrow Production, then you will know that their success story began about six years ago. Even at the time when movie industry in the Ghana was at its lowest, the production house was able to distinguish itself among the lot bringing us quality and beautiful well-thought African stories.

Their sojorn started with Life and living it  through to Perfect Picture to the very last production the Adams Apple Series. Now who wouldn’t like a little wahala with the Adams clan. The Production House did nothing but thrilling us back to back quality movies and just today announced the four new eggs in their nest.

At its Accra launching, the CEO of the Production House Shirley Frimpong Manso said the ‘4 CHICKS’ are about to change the mindset of Africans  about Sparrow Productions , she assured that Sparrow will be bringing excellent films and other African movies over the years—all for the better.Of course we all can’t wait to see what the Sparrow team has for us.

In any case let me run the ” 4 Big CHICKS ” by you.

1. THE NEW LOGO

Sparrow-Productions-New-Logo

Sparrow Productions today announced and unveiled its new logo, a more colourful and brilliant logo—probably indicating that, there are more colourful and excellent projects coming your way from their camp soon

2. ADAMS APPLES SEASON 2 ON DVD

Adams-Apples-Season-2-DVD

The second part of big surprise was in the form of a  high quality DVD version of ‘Adams Apples Season 2’, hitting the market from 13th December—with two episodes being released every 2 weeks.

In order to bring ‘Adams Apples’ to consumers in real and high resolution (quality), Sparrow Productions is releasing the Season 2 on high resolution DVDs which will not distort the movies’ quality—like VCD does, to ensure you get your moneys worth and be able to enjoy the movie series.

Why Adams Apples Season 2?

Following the huge success of the iconic ten chapter movie series ADAMS APPLES, Sparrow Productions embarked on another eventful journey with the feisty Adams girls and their equally vivacious counterparts.

ADAMS APPLES EPISODES is the Television spin-off and continuation of what seemed like a perfect ending to the turbulent lives of the Adams girls on cinema screens and vcds/dvds.

The 26 episode popular drama kicks up the biggest scandals in the most unlikely situations with unimaginable twists taking audiences on an exciting journey that will get them hooked on an incredible story told excellently by its fallible characters.

Beginning on the bright note of forgiveness, renewed vows, great business and honey mooning in London; a kidnapping and a ransom note for ten million cedis, throws the family into chaos and what will become the most ferocious episodes of their lives yet.

The sexy, sassy, wahala is back…

Adams Apples features Anima Misa Amoah, Joselyn Dumas, Yvonne Okoro, Naa Ashorkor Mensah Doku and several talents.

3. A NEW MOVIE -POTOMANTO

New-Movie-POTOMANTO

Christmas wouldn’t have been the same without another GREAT movie from Shirley Frimpong Manso and her Sparrow Productions Team. And she calls this one-POTOMANTO  “ a Ghanaian evolved version of the French word Portmanteau which means, large suitcase”.

Are you ready for the POTOMANTO thrill?

The question in POTOMANTO is; as the search for greener pastures gets deadly, what do you think will happen?

In POTOMANTO, ex police officer Adane is angry about being cheated on so he sets out to take his pound of flesh when he employs his skills to catching women who cheat on their men. But he’s in for a real cat and mouse game when he’s hired to catch Susan, the alluring young wife of a wealthy Nigerian businessman.

However the chase takes a different turn as a string of bizarre murders among seemingly young hustlers engulf the community. Soon it becomes apparent that the pursuit of greener pastures has manifested into a diabolical plot of illegal organ harvesting leaving its ignorant victims maimed or dead.

What follows is a terrifying race against time where two people from opposite sides of the law must face horrific dangers in an attempt to stop the canker that is annihilating an entire generation.

Starring Adjetey Anang, Olu Jacobs, Yvonne Okoro, Marie Humbert, Mikkie Osei-Berko (Master Richard of Taxi Driver fame),  POTOMANTO will be premiered on 20th December, 2013 at the Silver Bird Cinema in Accra.

Check out the trailer of POTOMANTO below…
