YVONNE OKORO SHARES HER ‘COCAINE DEALER’ STORY

One of Ghana’s star actresses and TV personality, Yvonne Okoro has bemoaned the lack of appreciation Ghanaians have for their celebrities.

According to her, unlike Nigeria where they are very proud of the personalities on their screens, Ghanaians do not hold their own to the same standards.

She said the people have negative perceptions of their screen talents, most often linking their success to nefarious side activities or naughty lifestyles.

Yvonne narrated one incident where some hawkers tried to sell her their wares, but upon recognizing her, remarked that she is the kind of successful star who makes her money from selling narcotics.

In an interview on GHOne’s Glitterati, the actress fumed that it was shocking to see people think an actress can earn her own money through her hard work or by the grace of blessings, but rather on the assumption that it was through immoral means.

Yvonne stated that Ghanaians believe ‘everything black’ is substandard because the industry in the country is not supported with the necessary resources to push it beyond its current boundaries.

She opined that people have developed a preference for Hollywood and Bollywood productions as well as international telenovelas rather patronize the films produced here, a trait she says shows the true mindset of the black people.

Yvonne further asked that Ghanaians stop distinguishing between the Ghallywood and Kumawood movies.

She said these are both strong parts of the Ghana movie industry and should not be separated by class or certain lifestyles in order to fit into either one.
