Ghanaian actress Jackie Appiah has worked in both television and film, in addition to serving as a spokesperson and brand ambassador. In Ghana and beyond, she is referred to as the Maestro and Queen of the film business.
She was one of five children born to Janet Owusu and George Appiah on December 5, 1983, in Canada. She attended Derrydown Public School in Toronto, Ontario for her early schooling before relocating to Ghana for high school.
The young and endearing Jackie developed an interest in acting while she was in Toronto, and she started to appear frequently in school plays at the conclusion of the year. Jackie, then 12 years old, relocated to Ghana in 1995 to live with her older sister, but she never gave up acting as a passion.
Before transferring to Achimota Preparatory School, she continued her studies at Faith Montessori in Accra by participating in a number of school plays. She was elected the Girls’ Entertainment Prefect while attending Achimota, which fueled her enthusiasm for the arts.
She applied to be an actress on the Hal Jackson Talent Teens Show around that time in order to be considered for a trip to perform at the renowned Apollo Theatre. The 17-year-old was heartbroken when she finished the talent event as the first runner-up, but that didn’t stop her from following her aspirations of becoming an actor.
Jackie Appiah had her debut in 2001, shortly after graduating from Achimota Preparatory when Edward Seddoh Junior, the creator of the new television series “Things We Do for Love” requested her to participate.
Jackie Appiah has since appeared in a myriad of movies including Beyonce, The Return of Beyonce, Princess Tyra, Passion and Soul, 4play, 4play Reloaded, The King Is Mine, Perfect Picture, Death after Birth, Stigma, and Prince’s Bride.
In 2012 Jackie also reached another milestone in her career when she received a leading role in ‘Turning Point’ a Hollywood/Nollywood drama film written and directed by Niyi Towolawi, starring Jackie Appiah, K.D. Aubert, Todd Bridges, Ernie Hudson, Patience Ozokwor, and others. The acting talent of Jackie Appiah has been recognized with several honours, nominations, and awards in Ghana, Africa, and the Diaspora.
A video of Jackie Appiah’s house went viral over the weekend. A friend of the actress who paid her a visit was caught recording the tour of the residence on video camera.
Later, a videographer published an in-depth documentary that studied Jackie Appiah’s Trasacco residence in detail. While some of the actress’s fans were impressed, others tried to humiliate her by alleging that she did not purchase her house legally.
