jackie appiah Ghana Movie AwardThe news of how four actresses, Jackie Appiah, Juliet Ibrahim, Yvonne Okoro and Roselyn Ngissah would be sharing their Ghana Movie Award Founder’s Merit Award car prize for collectively winning the Best Actress (English) in 2010 has been making buzzing since the award ceremony in December. In interviews after the official presentation of the car, Juliet, Yvonne and Roslyn indicated that they had not taken a definite decision on what to do with the car due to the absence of Jackie Appiah. However, Jackie Appiah is back from Nigeria and has spoken publicly on the car for the first time.

The star actress has apologized to her colleagues for her absence at the prize presentation which has been described as arrogance in some sections of the Ghanaian media.  She explains as follows”

“Let me first apologize to the organizers of the event, my colleagues and sisters: Juliet, Yvonne, Roslyn and my numerous fans for my inability to be at the ceremony. It is because I was out of town in Nigeria. I am sorry to have put the decision on the future of the car on hold because of my absence. Now that I’m in town, I have gotten in touch with my sisters to settle the issue once and for all. Since the four of us can definitely not drive the prize car, my initial suggestion would have been that we could sell it and share the proceeds amongst ourselves. Indeed l had plans to give my portion to charity”.

When prompted that according to the terms and conditions of sponsorship for the car, it wouldn’t be possible to sell the car, Jackie said in that case, she would leave the decision to her three colleagues and support whatever they agree on.

“The four of us worked tirelessly on set during the shooting of the movie to bring out the best, culminating in this award. We all had to work together to achieve a common purpose. We were like sisters and respect each other. However, it is obvious that the four of us can definitely not drive the same vehicle and since we are also not allowed to dispose of it, then with all due respect, l humbly opt out of that decision making and leave it to my three other colleagues”, she added.

She explained that her disinterest in the car is not because she is rich or because she has many cars of her own as the public may perceive.  She said she is grateful to God for what she has been able to achieve over the years but he decision to back out on the car fiasco is simply for the fact that it isn’t possible or realistic for four people to share a car. The actress also denied rumours that she was in Egypt during the prize presentation: “Who said l had gone to Egypt? That is not true. I have never been to Egypt before. I was in Nigeria”
