Popular Nigerian lover boy actor, Ramzey Nouah, and upcoming Nollywood screen goddess, Chika Ike Gbireri, together with some other Ghanaians are involved in a “forbidden” act in Ghana. The two Nigerian stars are currently shooting a movie titled “The Forbidden” which is been produced by 7th Act Production in Ghana.

In his interaction with the media Ramzey expressed delight and the warm welcome given him so far by Ghanaians.
“I enjoy sleeping and Ghanaian tilapia. I bet I have added a couple of pounds to my weight since I came to Ghana. I am really enjoying my stay in Ghana,” he said.
Chika, in a calm and shy mood said, “this is my first Ghanaian production and I’m so excited. I love Ghana”.
Ramzey and Chika are playing the lead role in the movie as husband and wife.
Multi talented award winner, Ramzey Nouah, who is married with three children, maintained that since both of them (Ramzey and Chika) are married; “playing in a movie as married couples has been a good experience.”
Ghanaian actress, Lucky Lawson, who is the writer and producer of the movie, said she had Ramzey in mind when she was writing the script. Lucky stressed that she believes in giving young and up and coming movies stars the opportunity to shine and since Chika is one of the new faces in Nollywood she decided to pair her with Ramzey.
