Nana Ama McBrown answered an auction call on the radio by Miracle Films and was hired to do costuming instead.
However, on the set, she was able to snag the lead role after the director, Samuel Nyamekye, felt that she was better suited for the role. In 2001, her first movie, That Day, was released launching her career.
Her performance in That Day opened the floodgates to choicer roles, landing her a spot on the TV series Tentacles.
In 2007, the movie Asoreba, co-starring Agya Koo and Mercy Aseidu, turned Nana Ama into a household name. Since then, she has slowly built a strong following by releasing a slew of critically acclaimed movies.
The Vice President of the Republic, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has, on behalf of Government, handed over assorted emergency relief items to the victims of flooding in some communities in the Upper East and West regions.
The items include student size mattresses; bundles of clothes; chlorine; bags of maize, sugar and rice; boxes of cooking oil; soap; blankets; plastic buckets, bowls, cups and mats; bags of sachet water, as well as boxes of mosquito coils and treated mosquito nets.
The families of those who passed away as a result of the flood also received cash donations to help lessen the burden such deaths had imposed on them.
Unusually heavy rainfall this year has caused major devastation in parts of the three northern regions. The spillage of the Bagre Dam in Burkina Faso has only worsened the situation, leading to the loss of several lives and the destruction of property worth millions of Ghana cedis.

Accompanied by the Minister for the Interior who is also MP for Nandom, Hon Ambrose Dery; Minister for Defence and MP for Bimbilla, Hon Dominic Nitiwul; Minister for Aviation and MP for Navrongo Central, Hon Joseph Adda, the Director General of the National Disaster Management Organisation, Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh, and other officials, Vice President Bawumia inspected the damage and commiserated with the victims.
He also pledged government’s commitment to deal with the factors that led to the floods and deaths, including broken bridges and the lack of flood control measures such as dams.
