Anita AkuffoFormer Miss Malaika contestant and host of Fashion Gh on GhOne television, Anita Akua Akuffo, says it takes more than beauty to succeed as a woman.

“I believe appearance is important but after the pretty face and the beauty, what is next? The beauty will get you the gigs but your input and how well you deliver is what ensures you stay on top,” she told Showbiz in an interview last Monday.

Citing an example to buttress her opinion, Anita said movie producers cast pretty ladies in their movies but some of them are not able to interpret their roles well because they are not intelligent enough.

“I feel sad when I see beautiful ladies on our screens who are not able to move a little further aside their beauty,” she said.

She explained that just a year as a TV broadcaster, she has come far because she has been able to merge her beauty with her intelligence.

Anita, who has hosted events such as Golden Movie Awards, Mr. Model Ghana, Miss International Ghana and Bass Awards, said she always excelled because she combined beauty with her brains.

“When you call me for a gig, I come not just with my beauty or grace but I come along with my intelligence and brains,” she said.

Talking about her career, she said it was quite difficult at the very beginning because she was the first in her family to go into entertainment and initially faced strict rejection from her father.

On whom she looks up to in the creative industry, she said she had always been inspired by nana Aba Anamoah because she knows what she wants and does not allow backlash and criticisms to get to her.

Despite appearing good all the time, Anita revealed that she is not expensive as people perceive her. According to her, most of the cloths she wears, including her hairdo, come from sponsors and what she does is to advertise them.

Currently a level 400 student of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), Anita, whose desire is to marry a rich and God-fearing man, aspires to be a lawyer.

The stunning TV presenter was quick to caution young ladies who want to emulate her lifestyle to be careful because most of her outfit and hairstyles are sponsored.
