The latest edition of one of Nigeria’s leading publications, Genevieve Magazine, is back this month featuring Ghanain actress Jackie Appiah as its cover girl. Jackie is a self-confessed “shy person”, who comes alive on set, and the talented actress has been featured in several movies in Nigeria as well as her home country.
According to a media release, the actress “is a tough-skinned and vastly talented actress who has been riding the crest waves of career success since winning AMAA Best Actress in a Supporting Role in 2007. Yet off screen she is a surprisingly reluctant diva. Unlike most actresses, she says her dreams are less about breaking Hollywood than boosting the African movie industry through her acting talents and brand the continent positively.”
