Veteran actress Madam Grace Nortey is unhappy about how organizers of the Ghana Movie Awards schemed and presented her plaque to another person back stage with the promise of giving her a new one.
The 81-year old actress said after six years of winning the award at the 2011 Ghana Movie Awards for her role in Adams Apple, organizers have since not return her plaque.
Aunty Grace as she is affectionately called said she was announced as the Best Cameo Actress” for her role in the Shirley Frimpong Manso’s award-winning movie, Adams Apples at the time that she was in the United States so made several attempts to get the organisers to release the plague to her but to no avail.
“The one who picked the award on my behalf said as soon as the plaque was presented to her, they [organisers] took the plaque from her when she got to the backstage. The organizers presented it to another person”
“I have made several efforts speaking to Fred Nuamah the founder of Ghana Movie Awards to give me the plaque but all my effort have proven futile. Two years ago, I met Fred Nuamah, I asked him about my plaque and he told me he is preparing the plaques for some of the winners so he will give mine to me when they are ready and till date I have not received the plaque” Grace Nortey told Christian Agyei Frimpong, host of the show.
Meanwhile, Abraham Attah’s manager recently complained that his actor has also not received his as it was promised to be delivered at the back stage.
Other winners of the GMA award have also made same statement about the organizers for the delays in releasing their plaques to them but the organisers appear unperturbed about their embarrassing attitude.
