Martha Ankomah Climbs To Stardom With Controversies video ( 18+ )
Story by Peaceonline
Last Updated: Saturday, April 24, 2010
Martha Ankomah has been garnering quite the controversy since bursting onto the movie scene.
After winning a role by movie producer supremo , Mr Lancelot Odua Imaseun, she has been labelled as a porn actress amongst many other things, following her explicit scenes in ‘Heart of Men’ and ‘Kiss Me If You Can’.
Showing a strong resilience against criticism, she states: “The only one that I listen to is God. If I say I will listen to people, I will not get to the level I want to get to.”
Although she began making waves following the discovery by Mr Imaseun, Martha’s brush with fame first came in 1996 during the days of Fun World. She went on to star in various Ghanaian television series including ‘Sun City,’ ‘Games People Play,’ and ‘Yes, Matron.’ Alongside the controversial movies already mentioned, Martha has also been featured in ‘Shakira,’ ‘Sin of the Soul,’ and ‘Power of the Gods.’
One of the few Ghanaian actresses to have made the crossover into Nollywood, she was nominated in the category of ‘Most Promising Actress’ at this year’s African Movie Academy Awards. Is she going to be a prominent face in the Ghanaian movie industry, or a face that will soon fade away?

well...i guess bcos of hollywood we can kiss all our values, virtues and lifestyle goodbye.
i'm also wondering why although Bollywood has not resorted to copying the Western culture but are still exceptionally sucessfull.
hmm i guess there is something to gain by valuing what you have and not blindly "ignorantly" following the western culture...

i still apprec8 the african originality in nolllywood. however, i beleive the indians are just lucky not be banned for copyright perhaps cos they shot movies like 36 china town in GOA not monte carlo. africa's got pride... we need it

You see Ray...The comment of Noreplyto here represents the views and thoughts of many lust-driven men who donot respect women as humans but see them as mere "sex toys".....Here, the woman exposing her nudity to the world would make all women suffer for it...It is not just about gaining fame here..After gaining fame..what next? How about her dignity as a woman, a wife material..unless she tells us she will not marry till she dies....
Nudity in movies does not add or take anything away from a movie..I watched "Heart of Men" and I tell you, the movie would have been a complete story and fine without the sex scenes..The sex scenes added no colour or special effect to the movie...Actors and actresses pose nude all in the name of being daring but I say it is all s****dity...It is not about being a hypocrite either, it is about teaching society something positive for others to follow.....In the future when these actors are all old and grey, they would look back at these p**ns they acted in and regret playing them...mark my words!!!

I really do agree with you. you do not need sex sceens to be daring. For me is really s****d to do that. From the one who writes these story to those who produce and acts them, will they allow their children to watch that? If not, why put out such craziness out there and expect that people should buy them in the name of film. If they want to produce p**nographic movies, they should go straight away and do so rather that hide behind a story and act p**no, then we can make our choice of purchase because is very sad to purchase a movie in expectation to see a good story line but at the end realised that you just purchase a p**nograpic movie. Is now a rule in ma house we will not buy any local movie again because we are not sure of what we may be buying, it could be p**nographic in disguise.
Kojo-London | 4/24/2010 8:59:23 PMDid I just hear these people say they're on their way to hollywood. Hollywwod my foot!!! So they think that when they go nude on set then it means they're good.This shows how desperate they are to become stars .No wonder that senseless Heart of men" did not win any award at the AMAA's(I wonder why it was nominated in the first place). If that girl thinks she's that daring why not try p**n movies,cos I think that will be more lucrative. They're just a bunch of desperados seeking attention overnight and by doing so demeaning the Ghanaian movie and the African movie industries in general. Even hollywood which used to glorify nudity soooooooo much are now focusing less on that. I wont even advise them to stop since it's their own bodies but I know 4 sure the direct negative consequences will be on them. By the time they realise the harm they've caused it will be toooooo late. Reply this thread

Emeka | 4/25/2010 7:01:53 PM |
Oh yea ? You see no reason, George ? I'll give you one.
Ghanaians and Americans are very culturally different people. So don't ever conviniently forget that when you are making your comparisons.
I cannot comment on this new movie right now, since I haven't seen it, to find out and judge for myself, the contexts into which the producer wove in those disturbing, silly, and explicit sex scenes.
However, I am convinced that this class of movies, that claim to be breaking boundaries, by showing more and more explicit sexual images, do not have a long-term future. One reason for my belief, is that in this internet age, adults who are interested in p**nography, know how to get them free, without relying on, and paying for, movies punctuated here and there with few seconds of sexual images.
And George, I am just curious, are you really, really sure you know what guys like to watch ? You could be wrong.
Jonathan, Accra-Ghana | 4/26/2010 8:53:16 PM |
Don't be silly George...This is Ghana and our culture is very different from the Western World...I know of the concept of globalisation and all that copying from the "Yankees" but what good is all that if we as Africans cannot be tagged with any form of unique identity...We cannot continue to exist in the shadows of another country when we have our own history, culture and values....If nudity and p**n are acceptable in Nigeria, then they are strictly and still forbidden in Ghana..Those movies "Shakira", "Heart of Men" among others have already died out of the system on the Ghanaian movie market because we as a people abhor nudity and p**n.
Our Ghanaian actors and actresses are too ashamed and afraid to act in "sexplicit" movies here...but they get the confidence to do that in Nigeria because Naija producers are enticing them with "Naira Naira Naira"....and end up buying their consciences, values and Home-grown principles...Let the Americans be Americans and let Africans be Africans...please

babazeal | 4/26/2010 2:09:59 PMthe reality of this whole issue of nudity is that there is absolutely no way a romantic story can be told without nudity.playing nude roles does not mean that one is a p********e.the world is advancing.so i do not see any thing wrong with nudity.iam enjoying every bit of it. Reply this thread
HOLD IT RITE THERE, BABAZEAL
Jonathan, Accra-Ghana | 4/26/2010 9:30:23 PM |
Of what significance is nudity to the advancement of the world...Since when did it become a modern principle that a Romantic story without nudity is impossible....Please do not mislead the public....As a movie critic, be enlightened about a story-line and where an effect would be appropriate...A romantic story can be told without nudity...Nudity is misleading us into a sexually corrupt era and soon, the world cannot contain what the youth are going to do in town....These so called p**n-disguised movies are creating sexual monsters out of the viewing public and these same monsters will turn to haunt us.....
I always love Tyler Perry's movies..."The Family That Preys", "Madea Goes To Jail", "I Can Do Bad All By Myself", "Why Did I Get Married", "Madea's Family Reunion"....These are award-winning movies and ones that will not only teach you good lessons in life but will keep you glued to the set from start to finish...and guess what, they contain no nudity..not even sex scenes....and guess what again, they are movies made in your description of today's "advancing world"!!!!!

Cat Eyes | 4/29/2010 8:28:36 PMThe sad thing is that now she is typecast for good--they will only give her roles where she's a loose woman.They realize she doesn't respect herself..thats why I respected Omoni Oboli so much when she refused to be looked at like that. Reply this thread

FANCY | 6/2/2010 8:39:22 AMthe way african movies are going is a big shame. we never showed kissing and all that ugliness. it was something the family can watch.

Truthteller | 8/22/2010 1:40:48 AMI am an African American Female..... I love african Movies because we can not get this type of movie in america I watch african movies with pride and anticipation to see so many people acting who look like me and have hair and skin just like me. I watch the movies for many reasons, the landscape, the house decorations, the acting , and the village scenes and I love the beautiful traditional clothings. Although there are plenty of Black/African American actors in the america, It is not the same. African Actors and the African movie industry has acheived what we blacks in America have just now started to do. That is make movie for us by us and about us. There are more african movies made in a month then there are African American movies made in two years in America!!! Why because you my African Brother and Sister, ( and I am proud to call you this and have much respect for you!!) You are not making excuses as to why you cannot make a movie, you just do it !! Much Recpect the African Movie Industry. You have acheived what we blacks in this industry in the U.S. have not because we are looking for someone( maybe White? ) to do it for us ... so our movies here are feww and far between.............for every one movie made here in AMERICA! ABOUT BLACKS... AFrica had made 20 Already!!!-------this is the Truth. Go figure that out because i am still tryin" ***** However, I was very surprised to see my Beautiful African Big and little Sisters doing nasty sex scenes in the movies and showing body parts.....because I had put you on such a high stool of respect........ do you know you do not need to ...we were buying your movies without sex scenes.....
The first time I hard Jackie Appiah use filthy language in a movie or do a sex scene my heart broke.!!!!!......... But i must not judge I must say I have lost some respect for the African Actors now because its seems as thought they are trying to be to White when they use filthy language and do filthy sex scenes.....oh well

Nelson | 12/6/2010 7:16:42 AMGuys, we all know that God is a very hardworking man and he always rewards the handiwork of all hardworking people whether good or bad. I am never a hater, she can go the hell and stunt all her s**t. I still blame our lawmakers, since all these saga started, non of them ever made a stride to curb this itch. All those striving to take the African culture to the mud, i bet you soon enough the angry ancestors of our land will catch up on you. Mehn, who havent seen p**n before, we have got enough of it. if you actually wanna get fame, show us what we havent seen before not female nudity. You know, thers one philipine TV series 'the promise' it was so romantic and lovely but how many times did you see inna and angelo kissing let alone sex. This is because they have values for their culture, did it stop that movie from winning many awards? Reply this thread
