Entertainment of Wednesday, 27 January 2016
Shirley Frimpong-Manso is often seen on movie locations directing or behind her computer editing movies. Sometimes mean mugging, all in her bid to get the very best out of her actors and crew.
On very few occasions, the world gets to see in her non-working mood, all goofy and smiley.
She is the founder and CEO of Sparrow Productions, a film, television, and advertising production company. She won Best Director at the 6th Africa Movie Academy Awards.
Frimpong-Manso is also a principal of Sparrow Station, a video streaming service for African entertainment from Sparrow and other African film producers.
In 2013, she was ranked the 48th most influential person in Ghana according to E.tv Ghana.
Frimpong-Manso is described as one who “seeks to raise the standard of film production in Ghana and Africa by telling progressive African stories as seen through the eyes of Africans.”
Her films are also known for their “fierce female leads,” as they portray African women with agency who can be breadwinners and lead complex lives
