Two years after her life threatening accident, beautiful and versatile actress Nana Ama McBrown has for the first time opened up about circumstances surrounding the tragic accident which almost claimed her life.
In a very emotional interview on “Restorations with Stacy”, Nana Ama relived the most frightening moments of her life on national television, making a shocking revelation that she had the accident after doing Hiplife group Praye a favour.
According to her the accident occurred as a result of doing a favour for friend and the same friend turned his back on her when was going through trial times caused by the same favour she did.
“There is something in me and I have to say it. I have to pour it out. With the group Praye, I have something in me and I want God to forgive me. I’m keeping sometime about them in me which I don’t know how to get out”.
The “Madam mock” actress disclosed that she had a call from Hiplife group Praye through his boyfriend Maxwell that they (Praye) wanted her to play role in the video of their single “Still young” and even though she didn’t really want to do it, her boyfriend Maxwell pleaded with her to do it for him because he was friends with the group.
For the first time she revealed that contrary to earlier reports that she had the accident on her way home from a movie set, Nana said she had the accident from the set of Praye’s music video shoot.
According to McBrown, she agreed to act in the video for free because Maxwell wanted her to but she even ended up spending money because the shoot was postponed countless times and she had to pay for plane tickets back and forth from Kumasi to Accra every time they try to shoot, until they finally finished shooting on that faithful Wednesday morning at about 1am.
She said the group Praye, particularly Praye Tiatia aka Big J who was the one who kept calling her phone prior to the shoot, ignored her totally and didn’t even border to visit her while on admission for about three weeks at the 37 Military Hospital.
McBrown however, admitted that both Praye Honeho and Praye Tiatia and Abraham Ohene Djan of Ohenemedia who directed the video, came to the hospital, immediately the accident occurred but after that, Big J who was Nana Ama’s husband in the music video never went back to check on her and he has never called her since then.
“Can you believe that after that night, I didn’t see that short man who was giving me pressure to come shoot that video again and I have never set eyes on him. Eugene and his wife came to the hospital twice after that but Praye Tiatia, he never bothered. Meanwhile he was calling my phone every day for the shoot”.
“That particular guy, I have told God that I don’t want to talk to him and I don’t want see him again in my life and I don’t want to see him around me”.
Adding that Eugene Baah Praye Honeho (Now known as Choirmaster) and his wife Beverly Afaglo visited her a couple of times whiles she was on admission but Big J didn’t even care whether she was alive or dead.
