It is no more about being patronized for their art because of their social condition. In fact, after seeing the quality of these films, one could say that they will be able to compete with some of the big guys of the cinema industry worldwide in a few years.
This couldn’t have been possible without the exponential qualities that the actors possess. Some of them are already passing the Hollywood threshold and are seen on the silver screen.

5. Peter Mensah
Not many know this, but Peter Welsh has a Ghanaian origin. He was born in Ghana before he moved to the United Kingdom at a very young age.
He doesn’t need a new introduction as we have already seen him on Tears Of The Sun, Spartacus, and 300. It would be an injustice to talk about his acting skills with just some words, as they are not enough.
So, we would recommend you watch them right away!
Crossing The Country Borders.
Most of these Ghanian actors are crossing the threshold of Ghana and African cinema to also act on the silver screen.
We are sure that they are helping the African American community become more proud of their heritage and origin. This is an uplifting story for any community that has faced racial discrimination in the entertainment industry.
