Twenty-seven (27) year old Ron Solomon Maxwell from Ghana has emerged the winner of the just ended 2014 edition of the Next Movie Star. He believes the time is ripe for someone else to be crowned winner of the Next Movie Star show from Ghana after Enoch Hammond did it in 2007.
The budding Ghanaian actor, model and dance instructor beat 15 other housemates to emerge winner of the coveted crown and is set to smile home with a brand new SUV, management deal, and movie contract for three years and mouthwatering wardrobe allowance.
Speaking on his success, Ron said: ‘I’m very happy and excited. It’s a humbling experience emerging winner of Next Movie Star 2014. Getting the form from Ghana, going for audition, getting picked, coming to Nigeria for the show and winning the it, I have all the reasons to be happy and excited.’
When asked if he anticipated that he would win at any point, he said: ‘No, because all the people that went for the audition, both in Ghana and Nigeria, were talented. When we got into the house, I saw different talents but I think what gave me an edge over them was my versatility. I’m a dancer, singer, instructor, martial artist and model. But before I moved down here, I said to myself, it is either I win or nothing at all.’
The Next Movie Star Reality TV Show has over the years discovered successful Stars in The African entertainment industry since 2005.
Those who have unearthed through the programme, include Tonto Dikeh, Annie Idibia, Kevin Chuwang Pam, Portia Yamahan, Uti Nwachukwu, Lydia Forson, Karen Igho, Tamara Eteimo, Tomiwa Kukoyi, Halimat Aitsegame, Boma Mac Ake, Zerziyia Wilson among others.
