See Interview below:
You are married, and you have a cute son. How do you manage your family life, and being a working actress?
By the grace of God I have been able to describe myself or call myself a “superwoman”. It’s not easy, but with the help of my wonderful mom I have been able to juggle it all. She takes care of my son whenever I have to be out on the road. My husband is also quite a busy person so we are both always on the road. I actually do make time for my son whenever I am in Ghana and not on set. He is so much fun to be around and every time I am away I miss him so much. I also run a boutique in Accra so when I am not on set filming I am taking care of my business.
What determines your hair styles. Sometimes you go for red hair, sometimes blonde, sometimes natural?
My hair is one thing i love to always change. I have never kept the same look for a long period of time. it depends on my mood and my dress code for an event, hence i have so many wigs in my closet.
Your daily beauty routine and how you have managed to maintain your complexion?
I am mixed race so my complexion is natural. however, I can’t do without my facial scrubs and natural body cream made of shea butter. I use a lot of carols-daughter products from the USA.
You recently allowed a male blogger touch you to confirm that you don’t wear butt pads, how were you able to manage the criticisms that came with it?
They are entitled to their opinions and I understood most of them and their points. But they have to realise that I am a grown woman and I know how far I let him go, pictures can be deceiving, and the human imagination is always running wild. I do not wear any hip or bum pads, that point has been made clear.
What do you think is the state of the Ghanaian movie industry and the African movie industry at large?
We still have a very long way to go in our industry. We lack quality equipments, We lack quality editors, studios and so much more. We lack support from corporate bodies as well to fund the movie makers to hire the right equipments.
How far can you go in a movie, when it comes to sex scenes?
I won’t go nude in a movie, for example you won’t see me acting a porn movie lol. Not for all the money or fame in the world.
We understand that JULIET IBRAHIM FOUNDATION is focused on creating awareness on kidney cancer and providing necessary interventions, how many lives have you impacted so far?
I believe the foundation has impacted so many as long as people are aware of what the disease is about. We have a music video out on you tube and it has helped and been very well circulated in the world amongst various kidney cancer organizations and platforms.The Juliet Ibrahim foundation also raises funds every now and then to help patients undergo kidney transplants as well as to pay for patients dialysis treatments.
