jackie appiah’s advert on cnn
Written by Gossipghana on April 11, 2012
Suddenly, television viewers the world over are talking about Jackie and how different she looks from most actresses seen in African movies.
The fact that the entire advert was shot and produced in Ghana is something worth writing home about.
It is difficult to explain the awarding-winning actress’s secret but she has taken her celebrity status to a higher gear after the enviable advert started airing on the two international networks.
Reports say almost all the Glo Ambassadors in both Ghana and Nigeria were made to shoot several television adverts which were shortlisted for the best to be selected for the two international networks but the jury finally settled on that of the Ghanaian actress’s.
Meanwhile, Jackie and silky-voiced Ghanaian musician Kwabena Kwabena are reported to have shot another advert for Glo and will hopefully sail through the shortlist process.
She has also shot a new advert with Nollywood star and Glo ambassador Ramsey Nouah in Cape Town, South Africa, just last week and that is also expected to be shown on CNN and other international platforms.
Jackie Appiah is one of the few lucky Ghanaians who can afford to own and cruise in a £120,000 ultra-modern Range Rover before age 30. She even has a customized number plate.
Jackie, for her age, has become very famous and made a lot of money; money she is said to have made from her roles in Nigerian movies. She is also married and has a young son, Damian.
Jackie has not only made a name for herself as a celebrity but is actually living the life of a ‘big girl’.
She has good looks, good money, owns a fleet of talk-of-the-town vehicles, lives in a plush mansion in a part of Accra where the beautiful ones play, and gets necks turning in her direction and fingers pointing at her anywhere she goes.
Simply put: Jackie has got the ‘swag’ many of her colleague actresses lack.
Currently, she is about the only Ghanaian actress who owns a fleet of expensive cars including a 2008 model Nissan Murano, an all-wheel drive variant Infinity 2009 model, and is also said to own a Chrysler 300 C and other small cars.
Interestingly, the number of times NEWS-ONE has spotted Jackie in town, she was wearing clothes that matched the colour of the vehicle she was driving.
Jackie started acting at age 12 when she was a member of a drama group at the Action Faith Chapel International Church.
“The first time I went into local and international acting was when I was invited by a friend, Derrick Serenu and Nii Addy Mould to compete in a U.S organised teen competition at the National Theatre … I was the runner-up in that competition…
You won’t believe the number of personalities who congratulated me and asked me to do one thing or the other for them after the teens competition,” she said.
