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)

Award winning Ghanaian actress Roselyn Njissah is a year older today. Join African Celebs in wishing the stunning and gorgeous star an amazing birthday! Wishing Roselyn  more Success, Happiness and Good Health.

Roselyn Ngissah is a respected Ghanaian actress who has carved a niche for herself on both local and foreign sectors as her name rings like a bell and her face clamored for by fans across the world. She has paid her dues as far as the African movie industry is concerned. She has grown from strength to strength with the roles she executes with flair.

Having taken up acting, she landed her first role in ‘Sicily’ in the year 2004, produced by Correlle pictures, after going for series of auditions since the year 2001. After her first role and she exhibiting her roles with extreme prowess, the platform was placed for her to show the world her ability. Roles have since beckoned with TV series – ‘Tentacles’ in 2003, ‘I stand accused’ in 2005, ‘Broadway’ in 2005, ‘Omanbapa’ in 2009, among others.

 

Then her film career began in earnest, when she landed supporting roles in ‘Princess Tyra” (2007) produced by Venus films, ‘Power of the gods’ produced by Gupado and Marhills films and ‘Sin of the soul’ (2009) by Heroes productions.

Wide acknowledgment started rolling in after she had fantastically performed well in ‘4Play’ in 2010, a role which was her first leading role in a major film. That also gave her the accolade as 2010 Best actress at the Ghana Movie Awards alongside Jackie Appiah, Juliet Ibrahim and Yvonne Okoro. It didn’t end there as another great performance in the movie ‘Somewhere in Africa’ gave her another international award amidst the numerous nominations that followed.

Notably, she has played active roles in ‘The Miser (series)’, ‘Adam Apple’, ‘The Pledge’, ‘Shackles’ (yet to be out), and ‘The C.E.O’, among others. Her zeal has seen her won accolades as well as been nominated in various categories namely: Nominee as Best Supporting at the Ghana Movie Awards in 2011, NaFCA nominee, Los Angeles in 2011, Best Supporting Actress in 2011 PAMSA A wards in Nigeria, among others.
She is undoubtedly a very good actress with a lot of potentials which we have seen on bigger screens via movies which have claimed topnotch awards.

We are a big fan of Roselyn Njissah! Keep up the good work!
