Popular Ghanaian actress Gloria Sarfo has expressed her overwhelming joy following her nomination in this year’s Africa Magic Viewer’s Choice Awards (AMVCA) for her supporting role in ‘Perfect Picture -10 Years Later’.
The AMVCA is an annual accolade presented by MultiChoice, recognising outstanding achievements in television and film.
In an exclusive phone-in interview on Showbuzz on 3FM with MzGee, the ‘Efiewura’ actress said she is overly elated.
“I’m very optimistic about this. My sister told me, ‘Ama this is for you because it looks like you are the only Ghanaian in there and they can never give all the awards to the Nigerians and other countries and not give at least one to Ghana, so we are bringing this home’ and I believe God has a reason for this so I’m very optimistic about it.”
Gloria Sarfo further added that she has not just been eyeing AMVCA. She has been aiming at it too, describing the Awards scheme as one of the biggest and the hugest platforms in the world, especially in Africa, that every actor wishes to be a winner or a nominee on there.
“It’s been almost two decades now in the industry and it’s been tough, it’s been a roller-coaster, I should say. I have been neglected, I have been ignored, I have been sidelined, I have been blacklisted, I have been called names for over the years and by God’s grace, my talent has been recorgnised.”
She again noted, “this is a movie that I played four scenes….Two scenes were the only scenes that I had lines, the other two were just montages, so Gloria I have been asking myself since last night, what did they see? It’s amazing.”
She further expressed her gratitude to Shirley Frimpong-Manso, Ken Attoh and the entire Sparrow Productions team.
The 7th edition of the Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Awards is scheduled for March 2020.
