Here’s what Banke Meshida–Lawal had to say about the cover;
Actress, singer, producer, Humanitarian, Director and Entrepreneur. These are the words she describes herself with. Funny, Beautiful, daring, big dreamer & warm are the some of the words I’ll describe her with.
Her fundraising work especially for children with health challenges made me notice this beautiful Ghanaian actress. One can hear the hope in her voice as she recounts some of the success stories of the Juliet Ibrahim Foundation as well as the grave sadness when the battle to save a child’s life is lost.
In all she is fiercely passionate about doing what she can to garner financial aid for the families, doing her own bit to help. Not an easy feat I imagine, but what makes her go on despite the challenges? Sorrow, Faith, Hope, healings and happy endings.
Her new Movie Shattered Romance is already gaining recognition and is tipped to win awards including best editing, as well as Film of the year. Airing in Cinemas Oct 16th 2015.
Cast includes, amongst others, Bryan Okwara, Mofe Duncan, GbenroAjibade, Sonia Ibrahim and Juliet herself.
Actresses take on roles, immersing themselves in their lines, portraying seamlessly, characters.
Juliet blew us all away on set. We gave her a brief and an occasional adjective to describe the mood. We were trying to capture as she stood in front of Emmanuel’s lens. She totally transformed into a calm enigma,a Japanese flower nymph and a sun kissed, drenched model. Within minutes, we had captured what we were looking for. We could go on, but she had a flight back to Ghana that afternoon. Absolutely Amazing to work with.”
