Talented Ghanaian actress and T.V personality, Joselyn Dumas has won ‘Best Actress Award’ at the 2017 edition of the Toronto International Nollywood Film Festival for her lead role in the movie, ‘Potato Potahto’.
The movie, ‘Potato Potahto’, a Shirley Frimpong-Manso Production was premiered in Lagos, Nigeria last week with massive patronage from Nollywood stake holders and lovers of African movies as well as the cast.
This came shortly after a successful showing at Cannes Film Festival, Durban International Film Festival and the British Urban Film Festival.
‘Potato Potahto’ was also part of the official selection for the Film Africa Festival which took place between October 27 to November 5.
The movie which tells the story of a divorced couple who could not agree on divorce terms and settled for a co-ownership of their matrimonial home and other property features Nigerian actor OC Ukeje and Ghana’s screen goddess Joselyn Dumas who played lead roles, alongside Joke Silva, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Chris Attoh, Nikki Samonas, Adjetey Annang, Lala Akindoju and Victoria Michaels.
At a press screening of the movie on Tuesday, Shirley Frimpong Manso said that the movie was a collaboration between Ghanaians, Nigerians and some Swedish people. She also added that due to the vagaries of the film production in Ghana, she adopted a different strategy.
“Potato Patahto has been out for almost a year but we’ve decided to have a different approach. We decided to pursue different market because Ghana is not enough anymore. We have been to festivals and we’re releasing in other countries too,” she said.
Ghana would receive her share of the movie’s Premiere on 30th November, 2017 at the Silverbird Cinema in Accra.
