Three beautiful actresses, Okawa Shaznay, Diana Yekinni and Belinda Effah spent their first day on set in Ghana at James Town, a fishing community in Accra, on Saturday afternoon.
It was indeed an interesting experience for the sexy ladies shooting in Ghana for the first time and they expressed those feelings in different ways.
They arrived in Ghana last week for the movie titled, ‘The Refugees’, being directed by Frank Rajah.
While Okawa and Diana touched down from USA & UK, sources said Belinda arrived from Nigeria, where she had been doing some productions.
Undoubtedly, they came down with a lot of expectations and their demeanor in photos coming out of the set indeed showed the talented and promising actresses are having a jolly good time, shooting in Ghana.
It was a sunny Saturday afternoon and an unusual weather condition and environment for the beautiful ladies, but they looked all poised for action as they went through their scripts waiting for shooting to start.
They gave the best of smiles on set and tried to be nice with every Ghanaian crew member on set. Interestingly they brought some excitement when two of them, Okawa and Diana, tried some Azonto moves to prove to their new Ghanaian friends that they knew what time it was.
The ladies, as part of the shoot, also went sight-seeing at the James Town beach to prepare themselves for the task ahead.
Indications were that they would spend a few more days shooting in James Town before leaving for other locations in Accra.
The upcoming refugees’ movie is about three ladies played by Okawa Shaznay, Diana Yekinni and Belinda Effah.
They are three African musicians who are struggling to make life better for themselves.
Hence in a move to enhance their musical aspirations, they decide to travel abroad to ply their trade.
But their chances are limited because they don’t have the requisite means to travel. The only way for them is to stowaway (through a ship) at the port. There, the intrigue and pressure of illegal traveling sets in and if they can make it to the destination.
Frank Rajah is not making use of his usual major Ghanaian cast. The likes of Majid Michel, Yvonne Okoro, Yvonne Nelson, Nadia Buari, Jackie Appiah, Martha Ankomah and a number of others are not in this movie.
But Frank wanted to take his production to the next level with this production.
