Lifestyle

The youthful and endearing Jackie Appiah became interested in performing while living in Toronto and started frequently appearing in school plays at the end of the year. Jackie, then 12 years old, relocated to Ghana in 1995 to live with her older sister, but she never gave up acting as a passion. She went on to Achimota Preparatory School to further her schooling. She was elected the Girls’ Entertainment Prefect in Achimota, which fueled her enthusiasm for the arts. She applied to be an actress on the Hal Jackson Talent Teens Show around that time to be considered for the opportunity to perform at the renowned Apollo Theatre.

The 17-year-old was heartbroken after finishing as the first runner-up in the talent competition, but it didn’t stop her from pursuing her acting goals. Jackie Appiah is a Ghanaian actress who has worked in both television and film, as well as as a spokesperson and brand ambassador. Jackie Appiah made headlines in 2001, shortly after graduating from Achimota Preparatory, when she was selected to join the cast of “Things We Do for Love” by playwright Edward Seddoh Junior. As the sweet and innocent Enyonam Blagogee, she had a recurring role and won the hearts of Ghanaian fans.

Jackie appeared in the Ghana Social Marketing Foundation (GSMF) commercial on HIV/AIDS prevention as part of the series created to educate people about sexual and reproductive health.

Three years of “Things We Do for Love” were spent on television, and Jackie Appiah coupled her acting career with her studies in public arts at Harvard College in Accra. ‘Divine Love,’ a 2004 film starring Majid Michel and Van Vicker and directed by Jayke Aernan, gave her her first official lead acting role.

Through her several popular Ghanaian movies, such as Beyoncé – The President’s Daughter, Princess Tyra, Passion of the Soul, Pretty Queen, The Prince’s Bride, The King is Mine, and The Perfect Picture, Jackie Appiah was already becoming well-known in Nollywood. Later, she appeared in other TV shows, including Tentacles, Games People Play, Sun-city, and many others. She is called the Maestro and Queen of the “film business” in Ghana.

In the movie “Sleep Walker,” starring Genevieve Nnaji and Ramsey Noah, she got her first acting job outside of Ghana in 2007. Her famous Nollywood movies include My Last Wedding, where she co-starred with Emeka Ike, and Black Soul, where she co-starred with Nollywood actor Ramsey Noah.

Since then, Jackie Appiah has had numerous film appearances, including those in the following films: Beyonce, The Return of Beyonce, Princess Tyra, Passion and Soul, 4play, 4play Reloaded, The King Is Mine, Perfect Picture, Death after Birth, Stigma, and Prince’s Bride.

Aubert, Todd Bridges, Ernie Hudson, Patience Ozokwor, and others.

Jackie Appiah’s acting prowess has earned her numerous accolades, nominations, and awards in Ghana, Africa, and the Diaspora. Her awards include the African Movie Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for ‘Beyonce’ (2007), the Arts Critics and Reviewers Association of Ghana (ACRAG) Award for Best Actress (2007), the African Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for ‘Perfect Picture’ (2010), Ghana Movie Awards Best Actress in a Leading Role for ‘4play’ 2010, Best Pan-African Actress (2011), and City People’s Entertainment Awards for Best Ghanaian Actress (2010).
