Veteran actress Adwoa Smart of Obra fame has made a passionate appeal to well-meaning Ghanaians to bless her with two special things she needs most in her life; a car and house.
Adwoa Smart, born Belinda Naa Ode Oku was one of the most interesting characters in the local drama series Obra which was the toast of Ghanaians in late 80s and 90s.
In an interview with Accra100.5FM, the diminutive actress said: “I really need help. As we speak now if someone calls to say he or she is gifting me a house, I will gladly accept it because I don’t have one. I have never built a house but I know at the appropriate time God will do it for me. The same way if somebody gives me a car I will take it because I don’t have one.
“But I must emphasise that I am not chasing after these things or begging for those things. I know at the right time God will do it. God can touch somebody’s heart to gift me these things I need and so if they come why not, I will accept them.”
She further stated that she remained available for movies, hence producers can also approach her to offer her roles.
I think the government or the Actors Guild should create a sort of endowment fund to cater for issues such as this. It’s really pathetic when actors and actresses do not have anything to show for after several years of toils.
