“Rocky Dawuni was nominated for a Grammy; other Ghanaians have also been nominated; Wizkid got nominated and won; Burna Boy also won so the truth is Africans, Ghanaians, it is possible.
“I just realized something with film – the business of film is not like music at the moment. When that changes, it will get to a point where people will start talking about it,” 

Ama K Abebrese has won over 10 local and international film awards during her acting career.

For the first time since the Academy Awards’ inception, Ghana submitted a film for the Academy Award for Best International Feature Film in 2019.

The United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences bestows the award on a feature-length motion picture produced outside the United States that contains primarily non-English dialogue.
