Former President John Dramani Mahama on Monday, September 12, 2022, paid a courtesy call on female Ghanaian actress Grace Nortey.
The move by the former head of state was part of an exercise to check up on the veteran actress who many years ago brought smiles to many homes through her acting.
The former president’s visit follows after former Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Barbara Oteng-Gyasi, led a delegation in April 2020 to pay a courtesy visit to the actress.
Although Madam Nortey expressed gratification for the gesture of the former president, she pointed out that successive governments have failed to fulfill promises of creating better conditions for the aged in the entertainment industry.
She noted that she expected the government to treat the aged in the entertainment field considering their contribution and sacrifices to the nation.
Grace Nortey is recognised as a good actress, especially for her roles that characterise a dramatic and difficult persona.
The mother of five, featured in many movies such as Lost Hope, Expectations, Jewels, Escape of Love, Beast of No Nation, Sinking Sands, and Ties That Bind, similarly has many awards to her credit.
