The 2013 Ghana Movie Awards held at the Accra International Conference Centre on Monday was full of drama, which appeared scripted to ‘unite’ perceived factions in the Ghana Movie industry.
From Leila Djansi and Shirley Frimpong-Manso sharing the nod for Best Director award which was presented by Akorfa Ejeani Asiedu (who has been involved in a very public split with Leila) to Sandra Ankobiah presenting the award for Favorite Actress to her former BFF, Yvonne Nelson, it was clear that the organizers wanted to make a statement.
The award also suffered some hitches including calling out wrong winners in wrong categories.
Leila Djansi took home eight (8) awards with her new movie-“Northern Affair.”
Shirley Frimpong-Manso’s collaboration with Yvonne Okoro on the movie-“Contract” got two awards.
Yvonne Nelson’s “House of Gold” also took home two awards.
