Ghanaian actress and Television Personality, Nana Ama McBrown has for the very first time revealed that she was deported from the United States of America in 2001.
Nana Ama McBrown was unveiled earlier today as the new host of Onua TV’s “Maakye” morning show, making her shift to Media General from UTV official.
Speaking with Captain Smart after her welcome ceremony, the mother of one revealed that she was deported back home in 2001 after her arrival in the US.
“Captain, January is a month I don’t like at all because things really don’t go as expected for me. I’ve never said this anywhere before but today I’ll say it to inspire somebody. My uncle returned from the US and met me as a footballer who had returned from playing at Kwadaso (a suburb of Kumasi). I went to play table tennis after that so when my uncle saw me, he promised to take me abroad. Truthfully I was in America in January but to put it short, I was deported,” she disclosed.
Although she did not reveal the reason for her deportation, Nana Ama McBrown disclosed that her return to the country was met with frowns from her family as they tagged her as the “bad luck” child in the family.
The award-winning actress shared that her deportation did not stop her from becoming the big star that she is. She also encouraged anyone with plans of traveling to not give up when it doesn’t go as planned, as it is not the end of their lives.
“So I want to tell whoever is listening to me that if your dream is to travel and if things are not going as expected, that is not the end of your life. God has a plan for you because I didn’t know I would become who I am today if it wasn’t for the deportation,” she encouraged.
