2013 Ghana Movie Awards Winners

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.
