In the last few years, Nigerians have come to love and enjoy Ghanaian movies almost as much as they love Nollywood. Only a decade ago, Ghanaian movies hardly sold in Nigeria while Nigerian movies were blockbusters in Ghana.

Today, Ghollywood, as the Ghanaian movie industry is known, has come a long way. Apart from the sex appeal of Ghanaian movies, they parade some of the most beautiful actresses in Africa, which has kept movie lovers interested in seeing their faces, even if the movie isn’t so interesting.

In this piece, we have decided to feature, in no particular order, seven of Ghollywood’s top actresses.


 Nadia Buari

She is probably the most loved Ghanaian actress. The daughter of Sidiku Buari, a Ghanaian musician, Nadia has mesmerised Ghollywood for years. Born in November 21, 1982, the actress is a graduate of Performing Arts from the University of Ghana, Legon, Ghana.

The delectable actress, who once dated former Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has become a prominent face in Ghanaian movies, featuring in blockbusters like Beyonce, The President’s Daughter, The Return of Beyonce, Hidden Treasure and My Last Ambition.
