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.



The announcement of the upcoming sequel was a clear indication that things went back to normal between the stars of The Perfect Picture.

Africans, especially Ghanaians, Nigerians and those in the Diaspora are very excited about The Return Of The Perfect Picture’. 

African Celebs spoke to some people who confirmed that this upcoming movie is on their must watch movie this Christmas!

Our protagonists have aged 10 more years, became more self-aware and contained, but life will still be throwing drama in their directions.

Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson, and Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku will be reprising their roles as Aseye, Dede, and Akasi respectively.

Other returning actors are Adjetey Anang (Fella), Chris Attoh (Larry), Joselyn Dumas (Flora), John Dumelo (Taylor), and Kwaku Sintim-Misa (Dr Biney).
