Young actors appear in movies once or twice and assume they’re celebrities – Veteran actress


Veteran Ghanaian actress Akosua Abdallah has expressed her disapproval of young actors in Ghana who quickly label themselves as celebrities after just a few movie appearances.

In an exclusive interview with Elsie Lamar on Talkertainment, the actress, renowned for her role in the beloved Inspector Bediako series, shared her thoughts on the changing perception of fame in the industry.

“For the young people, appearing in a movie once or twice makes them think they have become celebrities. We, at our time never even used the word celebrity. We were just happy, go-lucky people doing the things that we loved so much.”

Abdallah also expressed discomfort with contemporary red-carpet events, stating, “When you invite me to an event and you tell me there’s going to be a red carpet, I freak out. That’s not me and I am not coming.”

Additionally, she voiced concerns about the modern fashion choices of celebrities, particularly their tendency to reveal parts of their bodies that should be concealed according to Ghanaian culture.

“I think there is too much to reveal with these young people, everything is defying the laws of gravity (pointing to the boobs and butt), checking the upstairs and the downstairs,” she said.

She emphasized that these fashion trends do not align with Ghanaian culture and are overly influenced by Western norms.

“This is Africa, this is Ghana, we do have our own culture. We do have our own sense of beauty. I don’t believe in throwing everything out there. No! It’s so Hollywood-like,” she added.

Akosua Abdallah’s comments underscore her concern for preserving cultural values and modesty within the Ghanaian entertainment industry.
