Beautiful Actress Rama Brew has been spotted after being off the scene for some time now.
The veteran actress/musician who has been away from the screens for a while was pictured at the recently held first ever Women In Film forum in Accra on Monday April 4, 2016 at Alliance Francee.
Auntie Rama spotting a beautiful African print was invited to the event as a senior resource person alongside young actresses including Nadia Buari, Martha Ankomah, Juliet Ibrahim, Yvonne Okoro among others.
Rama Brew first came into the acting scene back in 1972 when she played lead roles in TV soaps of the day like “Avenue A” and “Villa Kakalika” which were written and produced by the late Joyce Addo of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC). She then starred in her first movie ” Farewell To Dope” for the then Ghana Films now known as TV3.
All these productions and others unfortunately ended up lost in a fire outbreak at the GBC.
In 1993 when Rama returned to Ghana after living in Europe for a few years, she was called upon by Wallace Bampoe-Addo to play the lead role alongside George Williams in the TV series “Ultimate Paradise”. The excellence of this TV soap became the springboard for other TV productions to step up their game in terms of the quality of production and acting.
“Ultimate Paradise” has won an award for best TV series and Rama personally won best actress award in 1994. Rama is also a jazz singer and the first female Ghanaian singer to popularize jazz in the country in the early ’90′s. She has also presented a children’s show on the now defunct radio ‘Groove FM’ in Ghana.
Rama has been very passionate about acting her entire life and as a way of giving back to acting what it has given her, she has been a judge on the TV3 youth music talent show competition called ‘Mentor’. When she’s not acting she spends her free time working on compiling her collection of motivational writings which she is turning into a book to be released soon.
Before her acting career begun, Rama started out with a childhood dream of pursuing a path in dancing which she still loves. Her father however did not encourage this passion so while waiting to study law at the University of Ghana, her aunt who was a writer/producer at the GBC offered her a starring role in a TV production—‘Avenue A’—from there it was on into acting, her love and passion.
Rama’s advice to the younger artistes like her daughter Michelle Attoh and nephew Chris Attoh, both accomplished actors has always been: ‘the sky is not the limit when you have the whole universe’.
