This past Labor Day weekend for me was spent catching up on Nigerian/Ghanaian films*. One highlight from watching "Princess Tyra" and "Mummy's Daughter" was upcoming actress Jackie A. Appiah.

Appiah, born on December 5th, 1983, has appeared in "President's Daughter, Beyonce", "The Return of Beyonce", "Divine Love", "Mummy's Daughter", "Princess Tyra" and "Royal Battle."

Going back to "Mummy's Daughter", Jackie's acting skills seem polished and professional against current favorite Van Vicker. Simply put, when Jackie cries on camera or when she gets slapped here and there, the audience feels sympathy for her.

Here's Jackie's take on "Mummy's Daughter": “In my current movie I’m playing twins,” she says. “One has a way of speaking royally and the other is funky. It sometimes it gets confusing when you have to speak this way or that way and all together I have 74 scenes.”

Click on the image below of Jackie and Van Vicker to see a clip from "Mummy's Daughter":

Dare I call Miss Appiah Ghana's take of Nigeria's Genevieve Nnaji? Well Jackie HAS won an prestigious award straight out of Nigeria recently.

On winning the Nigerian movie award: “I feel very privileged that I got the (Nigerian) award and it’s given me courage that Ghanaian movies will go far,” she says. But she concedes that she still has a long way to go. “I’m still learning, I need to watch more movies to improve upon my acting, read more books…go to acting school and learn some new techniques.”

Unfortunately for her male fans, Jackie A. Appiah is a married woman. She now goes by Mrs. Jackie Agyemang. The young talented actress has a son named Damian.
