Actress, Nana Ama McBrown, whose real name is Felicity Ama Agyemang, is undoubtedly one of the most loved Ghanaian female stars of her time.
Much of the love McBrown receives from Ghanaians comes from the widely accepted notion that she is humble and friendly.
Well, a new video of the mother of one and a 95-year-old World War II veteran has popped up that is going to endear her to Ghanaians even more.
The video, as sighted by YEN.com.gh, is one of McBrown showing maximum respect to Ghanaian World War II veteran, Private Joseph Hammond, when they met at the 2020 EMY Awards.
This year's edition of the EMYs, an award scheme designed to honour men who have excelled in various areas such as business, education, arts, fashion, technology, and communication, took place on Saturday, 4 July.
While McBrown was a celebrity guest at the ceremony, Joseph Hammond was one of the award winners for the night. He received an EMY Salute award.
Upon bumping into Private Hammond at the ceremony, McBrown was so happy about the encounter and it could be seen in her demeanour.
In the video, the humbled McBrown is seen bowing before Private Hammond as a sign of respect.
After guiding Private Hammond to a seat, McBrown talked with him for sometime before doing the elbow greeting with him.
Since popping up, the video has won the award-winning actress praise and admiration from fans
@anibabby said: "Always humble that’s why she’s always going to the top."
@omina21 predicted McBrown was going to become greater: "Very humble ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ God will make her greater than this ."
@lharko34 was not surprised: "I'm not surprised, she's always humble. She deserves praise❤️"
Private Hammond, who is 95 years of age, came into prominence after raising a total of £18,000 (GHc130 000) to support frontline workers and vulnerable veterans in Africa.
He raised the amount by going on a 14-mile (22.5 kilometres) walk which he completed within seven days.
The 95-year-old veteran's efforts received commendation and was even hailed by Prince Harry of the British Royal Family.
Prince Harry was highly impressed that at his age Hammond could walk 14-miles to raise money to support the fight against COVID-19.
