GHANA’S DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES RETURN AFTER 10 YEARS!

The Perfect Picture is perhaps Ghana’s most popular romantic comedy. Released in 2009, the movie centred around three women in their 30s going through a mid-life crisis and breaking points that would change their lives forever.

 

 

Upon the release by Film Director Shirley Frimpong-Manso, it became a huge box office success in Ghana and abroad.

Sparrow Pictures is now taking a huge risk that blew up on the faces of movies like Bridget Jones: a sequel. The company has high hopes as the first movie had cliffhangers that could be expanded into the sequel.

Also, bringing back old memories will intrigue many people. 

It was 2010 when the movie received an Africa Movie Academy Award; however, it was rumoured that there was a disagreement between the three ladies as to who would keep the award.

Award winning Ghanaian actresss Yvonne Okoro has commissioned a borehole to provide water for the people of Wungu, Walewale area of the Northern region of Ghana. The people of Wungu… especially women and children trekking a long distance carrying buckets and gallons in search of water, touched Yvonne’s heart and she decided

to help the community by donating a borehole to the people of Wungu…Walewale area of the Northern region of Ghana…

This is not the first time the screen goddess has helped under privilaged people. In 2014, Yvonne Okoro spent time with orphanaid Africa young adults and encouraged underprivileged persons to be focused in life and carefully make their career choices.

She said they shouldn’t give up on their dreams of becoming successful persons in life just because of what people think or say about them.

 

The popular actress, who is also an entrepreneur, said this when she visited  OrphanAid Africa’s young adults at the Young Adults Support Services Ghana (YASS Ghana) premises at Medina in Accra on Friday August 22.

OrphanAid Africa is a non-profit organization developing programs and projects to help vulnerable children and their families in Ghana.

The organization was originally founded as a local NGO in Ghana in 2002 and progressively grew internationally with registered branches in the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland.

The common goal of these branches is to rescue vulnerable children in need of care and to trace and reunify children with their families.

It also strengthens families and communities so they can care for their own children.

The YASS program provides services and support to young adults transitioning from care into adulthood through life skills education and career development services to create better opportunities for success.

The award winning actress was at the outfit to inspire persons there with her personal life experiences and career experiences as part of her social responsibility.

She touched on a lot of issues but emphasized on the positive choices they make in life as individuals.

“There’s something I learnt which is letting your imperfections shape you into being almost perfect or perfect in human eyes. No matter what career path you choose, people would come at you with full force.

“People would pull you down because it is in our nature as human beings to criticise and to remember the bad that others do, but there is the point where you need to keep your focus and work harder.

“You can choose to let people get at you or you could make your mind up to succeed regardless. The truth is, some of the things people say would be true and constructive; but develop an ear with filter. Filter out those that do not seek to grow you and take on constructive feedback.  I challenge you to do this,” Yvonne Okoro.

Keep up the good work Yvonne! (FBF: Please note this happened last year April)
