IT’S been about two years since actress Nana Ama McBrown got married to her sweetheart, Maxwell Mensah but she has faced a lot of pressure from the public to have babies.
Although the beautiful actress, who turned 41 on August 15, has refused to bow to pressure, she is very optimistic that very soon she will have her bundle of joy.
“Very soon, if we believe, it shall happen. My testimony is on the way, this year, God has promised me that I will smile, my 41st birthday is a year of more testimonies,” McBrown told this reporter with a smile.
She admitted that marriage is not always rosy but said so far, everything has been good and she is making the best out of it.
“We’ve been together for six years and married for two years and it’s been very good. You cannot complain because marriage is not always rosy as long as you are dealing with a human being but if you two know how to resolve your differences, it’s fine,” she said.
Away from marriage and babies, the host of McBrown’s Kitchen on UTV gave her thoughts on the rather dormant local film industry.
“I used to shoot about three movies in a month but it is not so anymore. The producers don’t have the money to shoot, the system has really gone bad for most of us.
"I have only shot one movie the whole of this year. Even though I get scripts, it’s not like it used to be before. I survive because I get a lot of endorsement deals,” she said.
Nana Ama McBrown used the opportunity to advise her fellow actors to get some additional skills if they are to make it. “I will advise that we learn other skills, that way, we will make more money instead of relying on the film industry which we all admit is not doing very well.”
Nana Ama thanked her numerous fans for being supportive of her and always showing her so much love, “my fans are awesome, I am really grateful to all of them. I know I have come this far because of their love and prayers, may the good Lord bless us all.”
Nana Ama McBrown came onto the scene almost 19 years ago and she has carved a niche for herself.
Due to her versatility, she has starred in numerous English speaking and Kumawood movies making her one of the best celebrities we have around.
