Nana Ama McBrown, the Ghanaian screen princess has revealed she had dreams of becoming a football star when she was growing up in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi.
Speaking on the Morning Starr on Starr 103.5FM, Friday, in a revealing interview, McBrown said she had interest in playing on the wings, but strangely found herself in acting.
“I wanted to be a footballer when I was young…position seven and eleven because I wanted to run, I always wanted to be a star.
“From school, I took a certificate for table tennis for my school, I was more into sports, volleyball, netball, but I realised football was the ultimate, so let’s stick to football, but my mum said: ‘You won’t get money and you would be hard’…so after six years in football, I felt that it won’t help.
“[Football] wasn’t lucrative because if I don’t get to go play outside Ghana like a good footballer, I won’t survive, so I decided to switch to so many things and I landed on acting,” McBrown told host Kafui Dey.
