Stunning Ghanaian-Nigerian actress, Yvonne Okoro has expressed her readiness and willingness to join Ghana’s local industry popularly called Kumawood if the industry can meet some conditions.
In a phone interview with B Ice on Kumasi-based Agyenkwa FM, the budding actress revealed that when she was in school in France some years back, she used to enjoy the local movies. She added that she had a lot of respect for the actors who made headlines in the local movie industry.
The 32-year old actress who is also a graduate from the University of Ghana added that she would accept to appear in a local movie produced by a movie producer from the industry if she was called upon.
However, she indicated that before she would make such an appearance in a kumawood-produced movie, the conditions must be right. Speaking about her conditions, the beautiful actress indicated that she had to receive a good deal in terms of the movie contract and the timing of the movie should also be perfect.
She bemoaned the class distinction between the movie industries in Ghana and said that movies were all about acting and you did not need to be of a certain class in your private life to be able to fit into a movie scene which was all about make-believe.
Yvonne Okoro has starred in many movies in Ghana and has acted alongside some of Ghana’s best in the movie industry including working with Shirley Frimpong Manso, Joselyn Dumas and Yvonne Nelson.
